Members of the Military Vehicle Collectors of California (MVCC) and the WW II Military Commemorative Association (WW2MCA) will be participating in a Memorial Day Logistics Movement to commemorate the sacrifices, made by our servicemen and women, past and present, who have given their lives to protect the freedom of all Americans.

The 75.3-mile route on Monday starts at Cherokee Memorial Park in Lodi and will stop at various cemeteries along the way including East Union Cemetery in Manteca.

The convoy will arrive at the American Legion McFall-Grisham Post in the 200 block of East Yosemite Avenue in Manteca between 1:30 and 2 p.m. and will be on display. The organizers invite everyone to come out to see the display of vintage World War II jeeps. The drivers will be in WWII uniforms.

The route will include stops at four more cemeteries and four American Legion Halls throughout the San Joaquin County. Stops will include the Stockton Rural Cemetery in

Stockton, the Park View Cemetery in Manteca, East Union Cemetery in Manteca and the Collegeville Cemetery on E. Mariposa Road east of Stockton. The visits to the American Legion Halls will include Post No. 22 in Lodi, the Karl Ross Post No. 16 Hall and Ed Stewart Post 803, both in Stockton as well as the McFall Grisham Post No. 249 in Manteca.
