On 21 October 2006 at Fort Indiantown Gap, a memorial was dedicated
to honor our PA soldiers who have fallen in Iraq.


Every Memorial Day, a ceremony with a 21 gun salute is held at Fort Indiantown Gap.  The video is from the 2007 event.  I attended the 2009 event and have provided these slide shows and music:

The Patriot Guard escorted our wounded troops and family, traveling by bus, to the 2007 Memorial Day ceremonies in Gettysburg, PA.  While military from Walter Reed have been attending this event for several years, this year the Patriot Guard was invited.  One hundred bikes showed up, to the delight of our troops.  Let us never forget to honor those who serve to keep America free.

By 2009, over 200 motorcyclist provided an escort for this ceremony - click here for a slideshow.
