Every year since 2005, motorcycle riders from all over the United States come together for an awareness ride across the country, from Sacramental, CA to Washington, D.C. Coming from diverse backgrounds and throughout the nation, the supporters of NVAO share a common goal to remember, honor, and serve those who have defended our great country. Realizing the importance and significance of our veterans, the NVAO attempts to demonstrate love and respect for their sacrifices by participating in one or more of the multi-faceted outreach programs that comprise this organization. During this ride, participants visit veterans’ hospitals and homes to spend time with vets and thank them for their service. Participants also speak at schools about the pride of patriotism and the importance of veterans in our society. And the NVAO riders participate in memorial services that honor military personnel who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom. This cause is near and dear to our hearts at ICMS.
