Keowee Key residents have acted as host to these Marines for three years. It started off when a couple of ex-service men who reside in Keowee Key felt there was a need to give service men/women some well deserved recognition.
The first year there was a small group of motorcyclist who lead the caravan, last year over 100 lead the group. If there was one this year there was 200. Most cycles had flags flying from their back. Some were vets wearing their military hats.
This experience, for me, was so emotional that I forgot to take photos when the soldiers were riding by. I saw some crying, most smiling. If I had let go I would have been sobbing. Can't explain how I felt.
Tomorrow I will post on a cook-out honoring these Marines and the post after that will make it quilt orientated.
