Working in conjunction with the Bible Chapel, Wreaths Across America (WAA) and The Wounded Warrior Project, the Ride for Wreaths and Roar for the Military will raise funds to honor America’s soldiers, sailors and marines. Monies raised will go to purchase wreaths to be placed on veterans’ graves as part of ceremonies during the holiday season. The mission of WAA is to Remember, Honor, and Teach. The remembrance is carried out in part by coordinating wreath laying ceremonies on the second Saturday of December at Arlington, as well as veterans’ cemeteries and other locations in all 50 states and beyond. For those who served and came back hurting, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project. Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) exists to honor and empower Wounded Warriors who incurred service-connected injuries on or after September 11, 2001. With advancements in battlefield medicine and body armor, an unprecedented percentage of service members are surviving severe wounds or injuries. Offering a variety of programs and services, WWP is equipped to serve warriors with every type of injury – from the physical to the invisible wounds of war.
We want to say a “loud-piped Harley Fat Boy thank you” to those who are serving now or who have served in past military conflicts. Our ride is a small expression of our big appreciation!
Details: Our ride will be held on June 8th, 2013 with registration opening at 9:30 AM. Riders leave from Steel City Harley Davidson in Washington, PA at 11 AM.
