Apologies to all – This mission may need some clarification – The BBQ is for mission participants only – This is NOT a VCA event, but we will be supporting the Museum with volunteers, and those personnel are welcomed to join in the BBQ. For non-participants – You are welcomed to join the event itself, but you must register directly with Fort Hamilton – If you are not one of the usual mission participants, I will remove your registration. If you still wish to attend, please register with the Museum Curator Mr. Justin Batt at justin.m.batt.civ@mail.mil or call 718-630-4349
