Tribute To Fallen Soldiers
UPCOMING EVENT INFORMATION
2nd Annual ( Texas ) Tribute to Fallen Soldiers Motorcycle Ride
May 15, 16 & 17, 2015
Tribute to Fallen Soldiers NW would like to invite all riders to participate and ride in the 2nd Annual ( Texas ) Tribute to Fallen Soldiers Motorcycle Ride scheduled for May 15, 16 & 17 in Dallas Texas.
During this years ride, Tribute to Fallen Soldiers NW will honor and pay tribute to at least ( 14 ) fallen soldiers from the Dallas / Metro area.
FALLEN SOLDIER HOME VISITS:
To honor our fallen heroes we’ve scheduled what are described as ‘Fallen Soldier Home Visits.’ At each of these ‘Fallen Soldier Home Visits’, we’ll present each family with a ‘Plaque of Distinguished Service’ in memory of their fallen soldier and perform a special acknowledgment for the individual fallen soldier we’re honoring.
This is a two-day event that not only makes a significant and long lasting impression on the Gold Star families we visit, but it also allows our participating riders the opportunity to give back to those who’ve given so much.
Our Tribute to Fallen Soldiers Motorcycle Rides are escorted by law enforcement and military vehicles. Some of the communities our escorted ride procession will visit are,…Mesquite, Forney, McKinney, Greenville, Plano, Garland, Rowlett and Arlington.
Our Mission Statement is simple. We come together as veterans and everyday Americans to graciously honor and pay tribute to our fallen soldiers and their families who’ve sacrificed so much so we all could live as free citizens. It’s our solemn promise to each family we visit to make sure they know their fallen hero will never be forgotten.
