Today I was able to visit Fort Leavenworth VA to meet about the upcoming Ride 4 the fallen May 10, 2014! More info at www.ride4thefallen.com
In 2013 I created the Ride 4 The Falllen to help honor not only my husband's but the memory of thousands of men and women who selflessly gave their life for our freedoms today.
May 10 we will do a rollcall of fallen soldiers in the state in which we will ride in the general public is welcome and then our riders will start riding cars motorcycles trucks bicycles horses anything at that point we will ride in honor of the fallen if they can die for us we can ride for them.
Not only are we going to perpetuate the memory of the fallen, we are going to celebrate the life of the living and our ride will end at the VA in Leavenworth Kansas for a huge lunch with all the veterans as a thank you for their service.
I am very happy to say that the ride for the fallen will be a national event this May 2014 thank you to not just one or two volunteers but hundreds of people across the nation that are volunteering their time to perpetuate an honor our fallen.
I know Jamie would be proud.
My name is Melissa Jarboe, military spouse, wounded warrior wife and war widow. Today and everyday moving forward, I will honor the sacrifice of our men and women who selflessly serve our nation.
