A few of the Truck Campers at the Jamboree gave us a heads up on a very special event for Friday evening at the Pennsylvania Civil War Memorial. It was to honor fifty Congressional Medal of Honor recipients. (Past, present and future) We needed tickets to enter the ceremony. We got two of the 1,800 tickets online and they were free! A good thing I had my printer because that was one of the requirements that a physical ticket had to be scanned at the gate.
