I realized that we have Veteran’s Day approaching Wednesday, November 11th. Every year on this day, we ride from Santa Fe Harley-Davidson to Santa Fe National Cemetery and the Buffalo Soldier Memorial to honor our Chapter’s Veterans, and all Veterans of our own personal lives.
Rick Ribich will be reciting The Final Inspection and Bob Bob Bob will recite In Flanders Field. After the readings, we will ask attendees to tell the group of veterans the wish to recognize, either family or friends.
The actual ceremony takes about 30 minutes from arrival until we leave. It is a very moving half hour when we realize how many of our friends have served and have family members that have served and didn’t return to loved ones.
Joe’s Dining has agreed to host our group after the ceremony. I talked with Roland and he said that he was very happy we chose his restaurant for this event. Since had has limited staff, he will be offering us a limited menu to make this visit easier for him and it will give us a shorter wait for lunch.
All members are invited to attend this ceremony, as veterans or grateful citizens. We owe our freedoms to our Veterans.
Meet @ SFHD @ 10:30 with kick stands up @ 11:00.
