A Memorial Day Tribute

A few years ago we had the honor of escorting the traveling Vietnam Wall from Cambridge,Ohio to New Philadelphia, Ohio. The thunderous rumbling of  the motorcycles could be heard for miles. My husband and I joined a friend here in Sugarcreek, and caught up to hundreds more bikers in Cambridge. From there we rode side by side escorting the memorial to Kent State University. The photos below show the begining as well as final entry to its temporary resting place. After the ride we quietly watched as many people walked to the wall seeking out their friends and family who had been lost in the line of duty. 

Coming from a long line of military people we always find it most humbling on Memorial Day to raise the flag and salute those who have so unselfishly given their time and in many cases their lives to protect this great country.


A sincere Thank You goes out to all of those who have served or are currently serving.
