Tribute To Fallen Soldiers
Tribute to Fallen Soldiers
Memorial Torch Motorcycle Ride
“A Run to Arlington National Cemetery”
July 23 – August 7
Tribute to Fallen Soldiers NW would like to thank our volunteer staff, our participating riders, our participating law enforcement and each of our honored families who participated in our 2015 Tribute to Fallen Soldiers Memorial Torch Motorcycle Ride.
This ride was by far our most successful tribute ride in our seven year history. During this 12 day – 2,500 mile tribute ride, our ride procession stopped to visit and honor ( 25 ) fallen soldiers and their families left behind. We escorted the Fallen Soldiers Memorial Flame through six states ( Oregon, Idaho, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming and South Dakota ) to honor these brave fallen heroes.
Although we had an extremely successful ride, our important work isn’t done. For those wanting to ride, volunteer and participate in our 2016 Tribute to Fallen Soldiers Memorial Torch Motorcycle Ride, our ride dates are set for July 23 – August 7. Our 2016 tribute ride event will escort the Fallen Soldiers Memorial Flame from Eugene, Oregon to Arlington National Cemetery. Once our ride procession arrives into Washington D.C, the Fallen Soldiers Memorial Flame will be extinguished inside of Arlington National Cemetery on Sunday August 7, 2016.
Join us for our 1st Annual Tribute to Fallen Soldiers Memorial Torch Motorcycle Ride – ‘A Run to Arlington’ * During this visit to Washington D.C, we’ll also make special visits to the Vietnam Memorial Wall and the Capitol Building.
This will certainly be our best and most important tribute ride yet. Ride one leg, one day or the entire ride. It’s completely up to you.
For anyone wanting to ride or volunteer, we anticipate providing food and lodging along our ride route. We’re also interested in speaking with anyone who would like to become our individual ‘State Ride Captains’.

RIDE ROUTE & OVERNIGHT STOPS
This is our ( 14 day – 2,500 mile ) cross country tribute ride in which we’ll be escorting the ‘Fallen Soldiers Memorial Flame’ from Eugene, Oregon to Arlington National Cemetery in Washington DC. As we travel our ride procession will be making stops to honor and pay tribute to our fallen soldiers. These stops are what we refer to as ‘Fallen Soldier Home Visits.’
At each visit we’ll present the families with our ‘Memorial Plaque of Distinguished Service’ to recognize the soldiers service and sacrifice and to remind our Gold Star families that their fallen hero will never be forgotten.
