      ******************************
      We are told August 1, 2018 is last day to order bricks to be placed at the Memorial in Angel Fire, NM. The bricks will be placed at the brick laying service on Sept 1, 2018. The RFTW Reunion for this project is Aug 31 – Sep 2, 2018. Run for the Wall is the ONLY Group that is allowed to lay these bricks at the memorial and “officially” change the grounds to have these memorial bricks placed around the walkways. Order a brick and have a friend or family member remembered for their service. The person DOES NOT have to be deceased, nor does the person have to be a Vietnam veteran to have a brick placed at the memorial. Bricks can be ordered for ANY veteran of any era, and even for those currently serving. Many times whole families come to join in the brick laying ceremony. It’s an honor for Run for the Wall to be given this responsibility.

      Order bricks here:

      The Memorial announced that they are no longer selling brick for this year as of yesterday(I think).  Too many so they stated from now on they will go to 2019 and be installed then.

      Thursday night dinner at 730 PM at El Pintos Restaurant.  We will leave the Holiday Inn Express on Jefferson and the freeway at 645 PM to ride to the restaurant.

      Friday morning we will leave the Holiday Inn at 8 AM and ride to Santa Domingo Elementary School and Cochiti Elementary for a pinning of the kids that cheered the pack on as they traveled to Santa Fe.  Lunch will be at Buffalo Thunder around 115 to 130 PM.  Eagle Nest arrival time should be around 530 PM.  There will be a meet and greet at Calamity Jane’s at 630 PM.

      I would like to buy a brick for 2019, I tried the links in the above post; however, the links don’t work.  Can anyone tell me who and how to contact the person that can help me.

      Thanks,  DragonFly
