Pictures Day 3

Texas District 18 Legionnaires present a Texas flag to American Legion National Commander Marty Conatser during a lunch hosted by Shamrock, Texas Post 68.

Legion Riders used a number of strategies to stay dry during their ride from Oklahoma City and Tucumcari, New Mexico on Day 3 of their 1,800 mile trip from Indianapolis to Phoenix. Many used hi-tech rain gear. This rider used plastic shopping bags to keep his boots and feet dry.

American Legion Riders awoke to a rain on Day 3 of the American Legion Legacy Run. They negotiated highway construction and rain for most of the day as they traveled from Oklahoma City to Tucumcari, New Mexico

You guys are doing a wonderful job. I wish I was there with you this year but I am there in spirit!!! Hanging out here in the California Desert getting ready for my 5th Combat Tour coming in the coming months. Hopefully I will get to ride with you next year. Stay safe, and break the record for donations.

Love you all,
