Motorcade escort set for departing soldiers

Tuesday, December 30, 2008

Officials say those who wish to show support of the soldiers of 138th Quartermaster Support Company, Brazil National Guard Unit, after the send off ceremonies at North Clay Middle School can line up along the motorcade route on Friday.

"We're organizing an escort of all the emergency response personnel in the area," event organizer Brandon Sciotto told The Brazil Times Tuesday. "People can stand along the route to wave banners and show their support to the soldiers as we lead them out of town."

Sciotto said the motorcade will start at NCMS after the ceremonies (sometime between 11:30 a.m. and noon) and travel east along State Road 340 to its intersection with United States 40, continue east to the intersection of US 40 and State Road 59 and then turn south on SR 59 to the Interstate-70 exit.

"We will stop briefly there to let people wave as the soldiers leave for duty," Sciotto said.

I wish these brave men all the best. There is nobody trained better than a United States soldier.

I wish I could have been there to wave goodbye to them and salute them as they passed. My son was on that bus with them. With tears in my eyes and pride in my heart I just want you to know ..I love you Smokey and come home safe to us.
