Bikers roll out Saturday to honor Armed Services Day
Spanish Fort, Ala. (BIKER DAD) — Bikers will rally in South Alabama Saturday to honor or our armed forces. It’s the Blue Star Salute Memorial Ride. We’ll meet and stage up at Ralph and Kacoo’s restaurant on the Causeway, then bring the thunder to the USS Alabama Battleship Memorial. This is all to show support for Blue Star and Gold Star families.
Blue Star Families are the immediate family of military serving during a conflict. Gold Star Families have lost a family member in the time of conflict.
The ride into the Battleship is just the beginning of the Blue Star Salute. A ceremony at the Battleship will recognize those family members. There is also a 5K run/walk, fun run and more. No need to be a biker to show up and show your support.
Please be careful out there, and follow me on social media:
