    I was lucky enough to be the Ride Captain to Honor the US13.Expectations were high about the amount of Patriots that would show up to show respect for the sacrifice that the service men and women along with the families gave for this country. I lost count to the final number but it was at least 36 bikes. The organizer (Kami) got us started with a brief comment to get us even more excited about why we were there. We made the short trip to Vincents on the Lake with no incident so that we all had the opportunity to stay for the all the festivities.

    May God Bless the Families, those that were there and those that could not!
