This ride is to meet the Tribute to Fallen Soldiers Memorial Torch Motorcycle Ride and escort them to the American Legion Post 355 at 7610 S Meridian St, Indianapolis, IN where they will be spending the night. Anyone interested in escorting this group can meet at the Plainfield Harley Davidson. Kick stands up at 3:30pm to go to Cloverdale, IN where we will be meeting this group.
This tribute ride departed Eugene, Oregon on Saturday July 15th and is scheduled to arrive Cloverdale, IN for a fuel stop between 4:00 – 4:30pm.
This is an annual ( 17 day – 3,000 mile ) cross country motorcycle ride in which the group will be escorting the Fallen Soldiers Memorial Torch from Eugene, Oregon to Arlington National Cemetery in the nations capitol to honor and pay tribute to America’s fallen soldiers.
As the ride procession makes its way across the country they will be making scheduled stops at the homes of our fallen soldiers. These stops are what we refer to as Fallen Soldier Home Visits. At each home visit we make we’ll present our ‘Memorial Plaque of Distinguished Service’ to the surviving family members to simply show our gratitude for their fallen heroes service and sacrifice and to remind each family their fallen soldier isn’t forgotten.
The ride will also be visiting a Gold Star home in Connersville on Friday morning. Everyone is welcome to ride with them if wanted. They will also be wanting folks to stand guard at the Memorial Torch through the night.
