Greg Schwert – Past President of PWP Chapter 1395, is promoting this event in the memory of his son’s best grade school friend, Justin Crum, a mortar man in the Army. He was a great kid and a wonderful friend to Greg’s son while they were growing up. Needless to say, he died too young. “Join in supporting such a great cause and I will be looking forward to seeing all of my fellow proud Americans at this event,” said Greg
