Will you ride for a fallen Vietnam veteran?
Saturday June 18, 2016
In 2012, MPT embarked on a multi-year project to recognize and thank the men and women who sacrificed so much – often their very lives – during the tumultuous years of the Vietnam War. The Honor Ride is one of the ways in which we hope to honor and salute these courageous men and women.
Military veteran motorcycle organizations, associations, and groups are invited to participate in the motorcycle Honor Ride to salute fallen and missing service members of the Vietnam-era.
Who: Vietnam veteran riders, rider-veterans of other wars, military family members (from Maryland and nearby states) are all invited! Our goal is to have 1,017 riders participate to represent and honor the 1,017 Marylanders listed as missing in action or killed in action.
What: The Honor Ride is a principal component of the opening day of the Maryland Public Television veterans tribute event, LZ Maryland.
Where: Veteran-participants will travel from their many separate locations to American Legion Post 22 in Towson, MD and then travel to and enter the LZ Maryland event at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium in formation.
When: Saturday, June 18, 2016 | Registration and staging starts at 11:00 a.m. | Departure at 2:30 p.m.
