CRIMEFIGHTER CORVETTE IN THE THIRD CONSECUTIVE PRESIDENTIAL INAUGURAL PARADE

The U.S. 56th Presidential Inaugural Committee announced today that out of the some record 1300 plus Inaugural Parade entries the “CrimeFighter Corvette” and Capt. Joe Jakub were selected to participate in the upcoming Presidential Inaugural Parade on Tuesday, January 20th, 2009 in Washington, D.C.

They advised that the honor of being selected for the third consecutive time in a row (2001, 2005, 2009) for a Presidential Inaugural is extremely rare and was also informed that we were the only unit selected to represent the state of Kentucky.

Part of the reason for the selection was our organization’s message is crystal clear, and that is we are striving for a Drug Free America. Our “Reach for your Dreams” anti-drug and anti-violence program is moving us in that direction.

Our RFYD flagship vehicle, the “CrimeFighter Corvette” proudly wears the symbol of our great nation, the American Flag, on its sides and speaks directly to the drug culture issue. We are truly honored and proud to receive this honor on behalf of the State of Kentucky and all anti-drug programs in our Country.

CAPTAIN JOE MEETS JOE WALSH AND MARY PETERS
