This National Armed Forces FreedomRide team is very excited to be putting together one of the largest National events/rides taking place on Armed Forces Day every year. This is our 5th annual event and will be held this year on May 17, 2014, on Armed Forces Day.
More than 30 States now hold an annual Celebration on Armed Forces Day to recognize and honor our Armed Forces, Veterans, Troops, POW, MIA, KIA, and their Families . This event was one woman’s vision of spreading the word to bring back awareness of this holiday that has been slowly losing its recognition.
We have called upon the United States to participate.
This National event/ride is not only for motorcycles but for anyone who would like to show their support for our Military. It all began with a personal vision and followed Mission by recruiting Volunteers as State Ride Coordinators, that now Stands United as a Team. We are encouraging all Americans to show their support on this day by joining us at this event, hang a flag outside your home and taking a moment to say:
“Thank You” to all of our Armed Forces, Troops, and Veterans.
