Homecoming -- May 29th


Dan will be making his first visit back home to Peachtree City on Saturday, May 29 -- Memorial Day weekend.  The good people of PTC and Fayette County have put together several nice activities for folks to join in and opportunities to say hello and welcome him back.


Festivities will start at 8:00 am on Saturday with an All-American 5K road race sponsored by the Peachtree City Running Club.  Runners, walkers and phantom runners are all invited to participate. Proceeds will be given to Dan's Fund this year and to various veterans groups in the years to come.  All who register and come out by 8 a.m. will receive a race tee shirt.  Dan will be on hand to start the race, and will be giving out awards at the end.  More information and the application depicted above can be printed from the race website here:  All-American 5K.

At 11:30 a.m., following the road race, Dan will be escorted through Fayetteville to Peachtree City by a motorcycle escort.  The exact route is still being finalized, but there will be an opportunity for friends and families to line the route, and various local organizations will donate and pass out American flags to wave.  Stay tuned for details.

At 1:00 p.m. Dan will be joined at PTC's City Hall by PTC Mayor Don Haddix, who will read a proclamation; and Fayette County Commissioner Eric Maxwell, the Command Surgeon, U.S. Forces Command, Colonel Brian Lein, and McIntosh HS Cross Country and Track Coach Charles Buckle, who will give speeches.  Dan will then have an opportunity to thank all of you for your support.

Finally, starting at 7:30 p.m the Frederick Brown Amphitheater is hosting a free Memorial Day program featuring the Army Ground Forces Band -- "the musical ambassador of the American Combat Soldier to the American people."  It looks to be a very special evening, with tributes to honor area family members currently serving as well as those who have given their lives in service to their country.  The concert is free to all.

Check back for updates, and mark May 29th on your calendar!
