          to Joe Scholle, Jim Turner, Tom Cannon, Ed Desaussure and Cecil Newcomb III for their tireless work at the hootch.

          We had between 75-100 Young Marines participate this time. We had 2 of them medvaced. One for a turned ankle and the other one for heat (he also had asthma and the air quality was at Code Orange). Ed and Tom supervisid cooling him down while Joe called 911. We also grabbed a Park Ranger who got the Park Police involved to take care of this young man.

          A lot less traffic down at the Wall this year, but we did have a bunch of first timers stop by - and that was nice.

            [FONT="Georgia"][SIZE="3"]Thanks for the note to fill us in about the Day at the Wall. Sounds like you all did a great job and still know how to Medivac. I had some thought about getting down to washington but the way it sounds it was just as well that I didn't. I too have trouble with that kind of weather. Infact today out to the parade I was feeling it getting worse by the minutes. Nice that Cecil was able to get down .[/SIZE][/FONT]
