Bill and Blackie rode the Custis Trail into Arlington, and with a Police escort through Arlington to the Arlington Memorial Bridge. I borrowed a bicycle from Linda Neimeir, and rode with Bill. We started at Bon Air Park where we had camped the night before. We would like to thank Sgt. Charlie Neal, Sgt. Randy Bilder, Officer Adam Stone, Officer Barry Foust and Officer James Giordano with the Arlington County Police Department for helping us through Arlington.
We stopped at The Marine Corps, Iwo Jima Memorial, on the way. There Bill met two Marines, one of whom got on Blackie. After we took some photos at the Iwo Jima Memorial, the officers escorted us up to the Arlington Memorial Bridge where their jurisdiction ended. From there Bill rode over the bridge, by the Washington Monument, and on to the National Mall area where he met with veterans whom he delivered some of the letters of thanks and encouragement he had collected.
