All riders will receive a "Ride of Honor" Patch
While The Wall may be hosted by any group wishing to honor fallen heroes, the Ride of Honor is a ceremony unique to motorcycle events. Motorcycle riders have shown the American Veteran's Traveling Tribute great support throughout the years by showing up day in, day out to escort The Wall, to stick around & help with set up, and volunteer through the duration of the event. So The Ride of Honor is something we do to show our respect to the riders while at the same time they can show their respect to our fallen heroes doing what they love, by riding. What takes place is a great experience for the riders, but is also something that is incredible to observe.
The Ride of Honor will take place Sunday July 28th in the early afternoon beginning with an optional short ride through the surrounding lakes area. Upon returning to the event, the ceremonial Ride of Honor will take place. Riders will travel in front of The Wall from left to right allowing them to be able to salute with their right hand. The riders will be saluted by a non-riding veteran and/or active duty military. The salute will occur when a rider reaches the center of The Wall where the rider will stop at the field cross and give a salute and will receive a return salute. Once this has occurred the rider will continue to the end of The Wall and out of the event area. At that point the next rider will begin The Ride of Honor. After all the riders have passed, one by one, the Ride of Honor will be concluded. The Ride of Honor is included in the admission fee for the event.
