|Uncle Vinnie's Clam Bar|
The AI tour recently launched a brief invasion of New Jersey.
Leaving New York state, we made a beeline for Raritan New Jersey. In Raritan we were disappointed to learn that Uncle Vinnie's Clam bar is not open for lunch! A quick stop for a slice of pizza was some consolation.

|Basilone Plaque, Raritan, NJ|
Every year the town of Raritan celebrates a John Basilone day to commemorate his life.
At the US Marine Corps Museum in Triangle Virginia I would later meet a 92 year old Marine who also served on Iwo Jima and played baseball with John Basilone in Hawaii! More to come.

The New Jersey National guard is partnered with Albania.
Thanks for your service New Jersey!
