> Greetings Gentlemen,
> I am hoping you can be of assistance. My name is Vince Barker from Appleton, WI. I am a member of the Wisconsin Society, Sons of the American Revolution. I recently returned from a deployment in Afghanistan and during the weekend of July 10th I will be travelling to Port Royal, PA (Juniata County), to conduct a dedication ceremony for the new VA headstone I am installing for my Patriot ancestor, Lt.Col. George May, who served with the 3rd Battalion, Berks County Militia. As a Captain he fought with George Washington at the Battle of Long Island.
> I was wondering if you or any of your fellow reenactors would like to attend the ceremony? I have no idea where you all are located or what your schedule is but I thought I would ask, as having individuals there in period uniform and accoutrements adds much to the ceremony as you know (I am a Civil War reenactor and conduct many Civil War grave marker dedications). The ceremony is at 11am on 10 July at the Kilmer Cemetery in Port Royal. If any of you can make it, I can provide directions to the cemetery. Thank you for your time and assistance!
