Vietnam Veterans Commemoration Escort Ride


Coming up this Sunday March 24, 2013, members of the Patriot Guard and other motorcyclists will be escorting the Vietnam Traveling Wall from Harrison to Columbus in conjunction with the Vietnam Veterans Commemoration being held in Columbus.   This is a major event which includes among others, the Governor of Ohio and the Director of Ohio Veterans Services.  The State Highway Patrol will be escorting the ride all the way to Columbus.

Staging is at the ODOT Weight Station on I-74 Eastbound near Harrison at 1000.  Kickstands up at 1100.   There will be a fuel stop at I-71 and US35 in Jeffersonville.  Kickstands up from there at 1300.

I know that members from Greenville’s Chapter 179 will be riding along.  I will also be making this ride.    If any of you are interested in joining us, you are welcome to meet us at the Harrison staging area, or, if you prefer, let me know and we’ll coordinate a meetup between us and 179.   I’m told they’ll be coming down US127 and taking SR128 out towards Whitewater to make the staging area, so we can join up with them somewhere along that route.
