I think I'll mention to the Museum that we'll have Marines in our group.

The reason that they deploy Marines on ships is so the sailors have some one to dance with.

Wasn't Marines just another department of the Navy?!
I exNavy, so I ain't a-feered... (like Ted).

I would really like to attend. 
Could also visit my brother while down there.

The short answer is...too long.
If you was smart, you paid extra to either install zippers or velcro.
Most didn't have the money and/or smarts to "fix" their uniforms.

 :'( Looks like Cindy & I will have to come off the list. Seems the Ladies Breakfast will conflict.  So much to do. So little time.

We probably will still go to the museum, just not with the "special" folks.

Arghhh, I was so hoping to see your interaction with the "Colonel"...   :-[
He outranks me just a bit...

I see you confirmed the Ladies breakfast is that Wednesday.
     Is there now a posted "schedule of events" for the National?

Wish you could be here too. We could use your help.
ie; A {flying} Marine in the group might be able to interpret what he's saying for us..

Ride safe, Ted

Anybody else interested?
   Did I mention, the Museum is air-conditioned and next door to an ice-cream store..

Ted... we're in!!!!
But 24 miles away, are there fuel stops on the way?
    I know you get tired easily. You can ride on the back of your bride's bike if it's too tough for you.

Thanks for posting this. Sounds cool
After our visit to the Fort Leonard Wood museum, will this be a new tradition?
    Not sure about annual, but whenever possible.

We'll have to have a National near Dayton OH so we can go to the Air Force museum.
     Would love to see that.
         Did I just see you volunteer to put on the next COG National??                  :friends:

         Geez, your a great guy..   Congratulations!! We "accept" your nomination!!!   
  :bravo_2:
Ride safe, Ted

No lunch needed, and eat a light breakfast.
We will be going to "Coopers BBQ" after the Museum,, for some good Texas BBQ...
