Michael France of the North Bay Military Vehicle Club and owner of NOR-CAL Truck Bodies supports many different events all over California. Michael has quite a collection of military vehicles and is known for helping fellow owners with their military vehicles.

Rita Galusha is a long-time military vehicle collector that attended the original Patterson Meets in the 1980’s. Rita recently moved to the Yuba Sutter area and enjoys driving her M-151. Keep an eye out for Rita at future events.

James Jurkiewicz has been very busy with his American Legion Stephen M. Brammer Post 705 in Yuba City and the Northern Recon Group. James has restored a very nice 2 ton and Jeep back to United States Marine Corps markings. James is also a Marine veteran! Pictured here at a Care Facility on Memorial Day 2016.

Don Meinhardt has quietly collected a very large collection of beautifully restored military vehicles. He has personally dedicated all of his free time in restoring some very large military vehicles that include a DUKW, 5 ton Wrecker, 2 ton Dump Truck, Ford Amphibious Truck, and much more!

"Our Vehicles are Veterans too"
The newly elected Facilitators accepted their responsibility during a Change of Command Ceremony passing the guidon or 'colors' from the outgoing Facilitator to the incoming one on 23 January 2016. The ceremony represented a formal transfer of authority, responsibility, accountability, a continuation of trust and an allegiance of the NRG members to their new leadership.
