National Veterans Awareness Ride | May 13 2015

The primary event for NVAO each year is a 10 day motorcycle journey across the United States. Each day of travel involves stops at veteran hospitals and veteran homes to visit, spend time, and thank our veterans for their service and sacrifice. A typical day will also include a stop at a memorial or cemetery for a time of remembrance or a visit to a school to teach the next generation of the price of freedom. Of course, any opportunity anywhere along the route is also taken to “Thank a Vet.”
