2006 Ceremony at Gettysburg
 Each year at Remembrance Day at Gettysburg in November a very special series of   
 ceremonies occur. In the early morning, the regiment assembles and marches to the
 Gettysburg Cemetery where 21 of our lads are buried. As the name of each soldier is
 called, their biography is read aloud and an individual soldier of the reenactment unit is
 assigned to walk to the respective gravesite and place an Irish flag and transfer for their
 safekeeping a named medalion. The regiment then marches to The Wall, and each year
honors another company of the 69th. Each reenactor is given a bio- card for one of the
soldiers in the company and represents that soldier during the ceremony. This year, we
honored Company G, which stood at the left flank of the regiment during Pickett's attack.
Each year, a member who has shown dedication and duty to the regiment and to it's
heritage receives the "Hugh Bradley Award". This year's winner was long time comrade
Rich Hickman. Finally, we participate each year in the Remembrance Day Parade
   through town and end the evening with a social event that lasts long into the evening.
