Hundreds Of Veterans Stop In Carnegie As They Roll to DC
Hundreds of veterans rolled into Carnegie, PA on their way to the national memorials in Washington, DC and they were greeted by dozens of kids and adults waving American flags
Children and adults lined the streets, flags waving in-hand, chanting "U-S-A, U-S-A" as the buses rolled in one after another into Carnegie, PA Monday morning. Eleven of them total, carrying more than four-hundred veterans from 36 states and a small army of volunteers were greeted with "thank you's" and praise for their service.
The group is from the organization VetsRoll and stopped for lunch at Cefalo's Banquet and Event Center where owner Leonard Cefalo explained what they were doing, how he got involved, and seconds later the caravan rolled in:
This year, in addition to the WWII and Korean War veterans, there are two women they call "Rosie-the-Riveters". They worked in factories during that era. The entire group is making its way to Washington, DC to visit the memorials this Memorial Day weekend.
