I'm sure some of y'all are aware of this Memorial Day event.
Vets from all over form up and make a motorcycle ride to the Vietnam memorial in DC

Normally, they stop here in town at the local VAMC.
I had some errands to run and they were pulling into the nearest truck-stop to my house. They had a police escort, and the road blocked so the 300+ bikes could get in the parking lot.

I just checked their itinerary, and today is day 7 of the ride. They'll have lunch at the Local VA and be in Chattanooga tonight.

Cool seeing all the vets and their bikes, and I KNOW the vets at the VA appreciate the visit

    Man that means they will be here at rush hour.  Glad I didn't go to work today.  Trail of tears ride comes through here every year and you may as well stay home that day.  That is 1000s of bikes though.
