Hundreds of combat veteran motorcyclists to rally in Vermont
NEWPORT, Vt. (AP) — Hundreds of combat veteran motorcyclists are expected in northern Vermont later this month for their annual rally.
The Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association says the rally in Newport of riders from 10 states will begin July 24 and end July 28.
Member Michael Gilhooly says the rally will include ceremonies honoring the sacrifice of the veterans and their families.
It is also expected to include a moment of silence and a prayer from the association’s chaplains for the seven motorcyclists who belonged to the Marine Jarheads motorcycle club who were killed last month in a New Hampshire crash.
The highlight of the Newport event will be a Saturday morning motorcycle parade from Newport to the nearby town of Derby.
