Nine Marines (7 patients and 2 staff) met the WWAN team at Clear River Pecan Co. for breakfast then headed out to Street Dreams to tour the facility and meet members of the Fredericksburg Vintage Car Club for a ride in the country. After looking and photographing cars in Street Dreams, the warriors were told to pick the car they wanted to ride in from those in the parking lot. Talk about a scramble!! They headed out Olive street towards Willow City. The owner of Harry’s Bar in Willow City is a Marine and wanted them to stop for a snack, music and stretch. There was some “Musical Cars” as they loaded up to continue the tour. From there we headed back into town to Backwoods BBQ for lunch. As if that wasn’t enough food for the day we had to end the adventure where it began at Clear River for ice cream!!
It was a perfect day to be outside. Everyone enjoyed the ride. THANK YOU, THANK YOU Fredericksburg Vintage Car Club!! Sharon and I were at Ft Sam the next day and saw several of the Marines that had been here. They were still talking about how much they enjoyed visiting with you all and of course the great ride. Our thanks also to Backwoods BBQ and Clear River Pecan Co. for your generosity.
