My mother was with them during this time- they wore a necklace or patch with a lightening bolt on it, white robes, no shoes and a bedroll-army blanket and sometimes a patchwork type blanket. That is aweful, but doesn't suprise me. These people are very vulnerable traveling around and putting their trust in strangers. I will ask her is she knows anything about it.
