no one.
The kids were going to carry the flags and DD was going to ride but he thought he'd have a better chance of being accepted if he were alone. Over 2000 groups applied and 63 were selected.

FYI not rebuilt either, built from scratch using all correct and original parts.

We are here in DC, waiting to get the commemorative metro tickets.
Then we are headed to the Lincoln Memorial
