Dave and I rode our motorcycle in the Patriot Ride in June to honor all veterans but especially the returning Iraq/Afghanistan vets and their families. This is a new fundraiser event in Minnesota and as Dave explained to me, the parents of this generation of military want to make absolutely sure that another Vietnam doesn't happen to returning veterans. Dave was called a baby killer when he was in the San Francisco airport on his return from Southeast Asia. Some vets were spit on and called other names. So it was especially heartwarming to ride with over 2000 other bikers who wanted to raise money for the families.
At the halfway point this is the sight that greeted us at the gate.
