Operation God Bless America Ride XXIJune 5, 2011 in Greencastle, Pennsylvania
Since the first "Operation God Bless America" ride in 1991 local motorcycle enthusiasts have been gathering from across the tri-state area for these rides to show support for our veterans. We want them to know that their sacrifice and the sacrifices of their families are recognized and appreciated on a continuing basis.
Whether you are a motorcyclist who rides with us, a member of a supporting organization, or a concerned citizen who gives us the thumbs up as we ride by, all levels of participation in this worthy cause are welcome.
Help us to help our veterans know that they will not be forgotten!
On the first Sunday of June each year, motorcycle enthusiasts from all around the Pennsylvania, Maryland, and West Virginia tri-state area gather to raise funds for the Veteran's Affairs Medical Center in Martinsburg, West Virginia.
The ride takes off from Grindstone Hill Road behind the Travel America Truck Stop off of exit 5 on I-81 in Pennsylvania. Everyone registers at the John Wayne Truck Wash and gets in what has grown to be a very long line of cruisers, crotchrockets, trikes, etc. You name it, someone rides it.
