He wanted to create a club for people to truly enjoy their cars. He knew the world had changed, and he wanted his companies to meet the needs of the new generation of Shelby owners. His vision was to knit together those people with the owners of early Shelby's and give everyone fun new ways to experience their high performance vehicles.   Mr. Shelby imagined a place where owners could talk about their latest conquests at the track, swap stories, share photos and learn new ways to hot rod their cars!

I have added to my calendar to go to the Fort Logan cemetery near Denver they day they place the wreathes and take some pictures. This will remind me to try now to find the dates this year. I missed it last year.

By the way, the first of these were privately funded. I remember the day they showed up at Arlington - it was on the national news. Now donations help.

This is a ping. Listen to the story here:

 

 

 

There is still time to make a donation. I directed some be sent some to Ft. Logan in Denver and one of the smaller Veterans Cemeteries in Colorado.

 

This year's events will be on 11-Dec. I am planning on going to Ft. Logan and take pictures.

I did go this morning. The web site said that the ceremony would be at 11:00, so I got there a little after 10:00. Well, they were wrong. The ceremony was at 12:00noon EST, and synchronized, so they all happened at the same time. That meant ours was at 10:00, so I missed it. By the time I got there the ceremony was over and most of the wreaths had been placed. I would estimate around 500 - 1000 wreaths were placed. Ft. Logan is a pretty big cemetery so it would have been impossible to do all of them. They did a region around where the ceremony was and seemed to fan out from there.

 

It was a beautiful typical Colorado winter day - blue sky with puffy clouds - but no snow. It just felt like there should be snow on the ground to accentuate the wreaths.

 

I'm putting a reminder in my calendar now and will try again next year.

 

In Colorado the Civil Air Patrol is the organizer. There were lots of young people - in their early teens and older - everywhere. It was so refreshing to see them there. There were many families there too.

This is a group photo that was set up just as I was leaving. The fellow at the end - the officer who seemed to be organizing everything - asked if I'd like to get a shot so they all got back again. I'm not very familiar with ranks and dress uniforms, but I believe it to be an Air Force uniform, and doesn't the star on his sleeve make him a general?

I have been notified that the photobucket account that is used for the photos above is falling victim to the Photobucket tax. It is likely they will disappear but I don't know when. They will not be hosted elsewhere.

Tony,

I know this is an old thread but it doesn't look like you ever got an answer to your question. The person on the far right is a Navy Captain (equivalent to other services Colonel). All Navy officers have a star on the sleeve.
