Vintage Military Vehicle Convoy to Commemorate D-Day 70th Anniversary

On June 7th, 2014 a convoy of WWII-era military vehicles will travel around the Salt Lake Valley to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Allied landings in the Normandy region of France. The convoy will depart from Camp Williams and travel north to Fort Douglas in SLC, UT via the west side of the valley. After a brief stop at Fort Douglas, the convoy will then depart south returning to Camp Williams.
Convoy Schedule is as follows:

10:00 am – Departure from Camp Williams
11:30 -12:00 – Estimated Arrival at Fort Douglas Military Museum (32 Potter Street, SLC)
12:45 – Departure from Fort Douglas

We anticipate and welcome the participation of WWII veterans and their families. To coordinate veteran participation please contact Lance Jensen (contact info above) or if you have a WWII era military vehicle and would like to participate in the convoy.

The convoy event is officially recognized as the “D-Day Rollout 2014.” Vehicles in the convoy are authentic military vehicles from the 1940’s and 1950’s owned by private individuals. The convoy is estimated to be comprised of about 20-25 vehicles. The Utah National Guard is supporting this event and will be providing facilities for convoy participants at Camp Williams and will also be providing an escort of modern military Humvee vehicles.

Utah National Guard and Fort Douglas

I'm proud to announce the support of the Utah National Guard for D-Day Roll-out 2014. They will be providing an escort for the convoy by way of modern Humvees. They will also be providing some facilities at Camp Williams for our use. Thank you to the UNG!

Our mid-way point and lunch-break location will be Fort Douglas Military Museum. We will make a stop here to take a break, have lunch and check out the museum. The museum is coincidentally hosting the Utah Fallen Warrior Remembrance event on the day of the convoy.

First Post!

To commemorate the D-Day landings in Normandy, France on June 6th, 1944, a convoy of vintage military vehicles will travel around the Salt Lake Valley on Saturday June 7, 2014. Our main goal is to remember those who have served and who are sadly leaving us rapidly - WWII Veterans. Additionally, we want to honor all veterans of the US Armed forces and their families. This event also gives vehicle owners an opportunity to display and have fun in our vintage military vehicles, which to us are a testament to American ingenuity and productivity.

We welcome anyone with a vintage military vehicle to participate in the convoy. The WWII era is the focus, but vehicles from other eras are welcome also. WWII period dress during the event is encouraged!

Our convoy route is in the works - stay tuned for updates!

WE WANT VETERANS! If you know of a WWII veteran, we invite you to invite him/her to participate with us! We would be honored to have them ride along in one of our vehicles for any portion of the event, or even just to meet us at one of our rally locations. Please contact us directly if you have a veteran who would like to participate.

Those interested in WWII but who do not have vehicles are also encouraged to get geared up and find a ride.

This is an "informal" event, meaning that we are not charging any fees to participate. This also means that everyone who does participate is fully responsible for their own actions and for the legal status of the vehicle they own/operate (licensed, registered, insured, obey traffic laws, etc.).
