Tyler, Texas (KETK) — From a “pipe dream” to a national movement, Patriot Bikers from across this great nation are preparing to ride to Washington, D.C., on September 11, 2013, to honor those who were killed in the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks.
In the greatest tradition of American Patriotism, the riders will honor the first responders on that day for their courage in the face of the unknown. Without regard for their own safety, they endeavored to save as many lives as possible, and as a result many made the supreme sacrifice.
In addition, Patriot Bikers will honor the men and women of our Armed Services who have sacrificed so much in the fight against those who wish to destroy the American way of life. Our military has gone beyond the call of duty in their service. Their families and communities have contributed their fathers, mothers, sons and daughters in the defense of our nation. To that, Patriot Bikers wish to extend our sincere gratitude.
To show support of these great Patriots and as a tribute to the fighting spirit of our great nation and Founding Fathers, 2-million bikers will ride to D.C., and pass by the United States Capitol and various memorials throughout the city.
The Patriot Bikers ask that on this day of remembrance that all Americans pray for our country and for those who were lost on September 11th, and give thanks to all of our service members and first responders.
