2017 Wreaths Across America, Motor Escort of the Wreaths!
For this year’s Wreath Motor Escort, all bikes will be staging at 3191 Armsdale Road, Jacksonville, Florida 32218 – JTA Park & Ride at 0700 on Saturday, December 16th 2017.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Florida Highway Patrol is unable to provide a safety escort from the Saddle Creek Logistics Services facility to The Jacksonville National Cemetery.
To ensure a safe and efficient Motor Escort, all Motorcycle Escort participants will stage at the JTA Park & Ride at 3191 Armsdale Road, Jacksonville, Florida 32218.
The Ride Captain in charge at the JTA Park & Ride will be Shawn Beal. Shawn will assist to get the bikes lined up in preparation for the arrival of the WAA wreath trucks.
Once the 2 Semi-Tractor Trailers arrive at the JTA Park & Ride, as a group, we will escort the wreaths to our Jacksonville National Cemetery.
Once on the cemetery property, follow the directions of the ground crew to the designated parking areas within the cemetery property.
As in years past, this escort is a huge sign of respect to our Veterans and their families. Dress warm and we will see you Saturday morning at the JTA Park & Ride, 3191 Armsdale Road, Jacksonville, Florida 32218.
If you have any questions regarding this year’s escort please contact Mike “JAXFLBIKER” Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
