Bob Fransen heard about us on the news and came out and walked about 5 miles with us. His son is serving in Iraq, and he lives in Vernon, CT. He may try and join up with us again. Thanks Bob, it was wonderful to meet you.
Jim and June Joyce came out to meet us, Jim is a retired U.S. Navy WWII vet. Happy 60th Anniversary!
On Day 2 we begin on the Mass./Ct. state line on the Purple Heart Memorial Highway, Rt. 5.
We were well-received in Ct. We stopped at a few firehouses where there were members of the National Guard. We enjoyed meeting all of you.
Well wishers coming out to meet the walkers. Thanks for your hospitality Rocco and Rita!
