On June 19th, 2004 The Middle East Conflicts Wall Memorial was dedicated commemorating the servicemen and women who have lost their lives in worldwide conflicts since 1979. This is the first time in the history of the United States that a memorial has been erected while the conflict is on going. The names on this Wall Memorial represent our fallen heroes from such diverse locations as Panama, Lebanon Barrack Bombings, the Balkans, Grenada, Somalia, Haiti, USS Cole Bombings, USS Stark, terrorist attacks in Italy, Greece, Scotland, and the current conflicts in the Middle East.
The Illinois Motorcycle Freedom Run is an annual bike run always on the 3rd Saturday of June. Motorcycle enthusiasts, families, Military personal, from all States, come together for a bike run to Marseilles, Illinois where a Memorial Ceremony is held in honor our fallen heroes that have died fighting to preserve our freedoms & to read off the names of our newly fallen HEROES who's names were recently added to The Wall.
You can help by: 1) Log on to www.ILMFR.org & make a donation 2) Organize a Group ride to this event. ( Email us so we can create an event on BON/Facebook so others can join) ~~~~and most importantly~~~~~ 3) Help us find our Gold Star families! Their children are our Nations HEROES! In your travels TELL someone about this Wall Memorial..the 1st ever in the Nation's history... built 100% by bikers and volunteers! The 1st time ever, to erect a Memorial WHILE the conflict is still current. Hold a bike run in your town & raise 'money' to send these parents here! Their wives/husbands..their children. WE will take care of them once they get here..but we need your help.
Pray for peace. Remember our fallen. God Bless. Thank you Carla
