The primary event for NVAO each year is a 10 day motorcycle journey across the United States. Each day of travel involves stops at veteran hospitals and veteran homes to visit, spend time, and thank our veterans for their service and sacrifice. A typical day will also include a stop at a memorial or cemetery for a time of remembrance or a visit to a school to teach the next generation of the price of freedom. Of course, any opportunity anywhere along the route is also taken to “Thank a Vet.”
During this weekend of visiting our nation’s memorials, NVAO lays a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery. On Sunday, all are encouraged to participate in the annual Rolling Thunder demonstration ride to reinforce our commitment to account for our country’s POWs and MIAs and to keep them foremost in the minds and priorities of our governmental officials.
