The accommodations at Marine Corps Base Quantico are outstanding, as is the Marine Corps Museum that resides on Marine Corps Air Station Quantico. It is also quite a thrill to watch MARINE ONE and the fleet of HMX-1 (Presidential Helicopter Squadron) that is based there. Excellent choice for the accommodations Steve.

Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C,I-Batavia) recently announced that he will be hosting Patriot Trip VI, an annual journey with local veterans to visit the monuments, museums and memorials dedicated to America’s courageous armed service members.
This year’s trip will take place from Thursday, Sept. 19 through Sunday, Sept. 22 and include visits to landmarks such as the World War WII, Vietnam, Korean and Iwo Jima memorials, as well as Arlington Cemetery and a wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknowns.
“The Patriot Trip is a solemn and captivating experience that highlights the depth of the bravery and sacrifice our heroic veterans have contributed to our nation,” Hawley said. “Over the past five years, this event has provided indelible memories for me and the veterans I have had the honor of traveling with, and I look forward to sharing this experience with more of our heroic service men and women who have given so much to protect our freedom and way of life.”
Hawley, who served as a 1st Lieutenant in the Army Reserves as well as with the National Guard, is the ranking minority member of the Assembly Committee on Veterans Affairs.
Patriot Trip VI will include roundtrip private coach transportation from Western New York to Washington, D.C., and accommodations at Quantico Marine Base in Virginia. Most meals are included with the trip cost of approximately $350. For more information about trip details, pricing, or to sign up, please call Hawley’s District Office at (585) 589-5780.
