The U.S. Air Force Honor Guard visited Patriot Point this past weekend. These men are based out of Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling and are responsible for providing burial services to those laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery. At Patriot Point, the guests were blown away with the property, where they especially enjoyed skeet shooting and beach activities. Several guests also enjoyed the 3-D archery course, while others enjoyed relaxing and watching college football. “They, and I, are extremely grateful for what Patriot Point provides and we cannot thank you enough for your efforts.”
The Maryland chapter of Freedom Hunters brought seven retired and active-duty service members from Maryland and Delaware to Patriot Point this past weekend for a dove hunt. All of the guests served for more than 10 years and enjoyed a wonderful weekend at the property.
Tom Deoudes, outreach coordinator for the chapter, said that the service members thanked him for arranging the visit. Deoudes also shared a thank you note from a service member who visited Patriot Point last fall:
Trips like today truly mean more than you could ever imagine to us. Patriot Point is the epitome of giving back to service men and woman by providing an environment of true friendship, sportsmanship and relaxation to all veterans.
