Mark Finnegan, co-founder of VetsRoll, announced last week that the organization is canceling the Washington, D.C. trip that had been scheduled for May 17—20.

“On behalf of VetsRoll Board of Directors, emotionally, this is so hard to do, but with the current bleak situation across the nation, we are confident that we are making the correct decision to cancel this year’s VetsRoll trip, even though it is still 60 days out,” Finnegan said in an email.

The trip in May would have been the 11th year for the VetsRoll trip, which gives World War II and Korean War era veterans, as well as Rosie the Riveters, free motor coach trips to Washington, D.C., with stops in Dayton, Ohio and other sites along the way.

VetsRoll organizers will begin planning for the May 23—26, 2021 trip.
