The Ride

The event will kick off on Memorial Day, May 27, at the Vietnam Wall in St. Paul where four teams of classic cars and motorcycles will begin a journey to the four corners of our state visiting local VFW Posts along the way.  They will spend the next four days on the road visiting 60 communities that are arranging their own ceremonies.  The four teams will arrive at Cragun’s Resort the evening of May 31.  Events are planned throughout the week at Cragun’s and the Traveling Wall will arrive at the Brainerd Fairgrounds on Thursday May 30.  A commemoration event is planned at the fairgrounds on June 1, with a formal program beginning at 1:00.  The public is invited to all events and all events are free.  We are asking for everyone to turn out in support of a generation of veterans who need and deserve the nations gratitude.  All information can be found on our website including information on how you can contribute.
