Escorted by the patriot riders of VVA chapter 388, including Tom Spencer and Sheriff Furlong with his motorcycle crew the Take Me Home Huey truck & huey arrived in Carson City ( October 1, 2017). Mayor Bob Crowell suggested to stop right in front of the City Hall for a great photo op.
From there, the motorcade continued to the East Community Center, where Mayor Crowell, and city officials Nick Marano (city manager), representative of Senator Heller, representative of Senator Cortez Masto, Shane Whitecloud (VRC – Veteran Resource Centers of America) addressed their speeches to recognize the veterans community and their health concerns, as well as welcoming the Take Me Home Huey project.
The following video is an edited clip to tribute Mayor Robert “Bob” Crowell of Carson City, Nevada, who had unfortunately passed away September of 2020. Bob Crowell was a strong leader in his community and a compassionate advocate for veterans. He had served in the Navy for 23 years, including in Vietnam.
It was a honor to meet Mayor Crowell and we greatly appreciated his engagement in our event. Our condolences to his family and the entire Carson City community.
