RidersUSA will be sponsoring 20 wreaths with three in the name of our past members, Jay "Sporty" Schonert, Adam P. Rocha and Tammy Cowart. Wreaths Across America’s Mission Statement is to Remember the fallen; Honor those who served; and Teach our children the value of freedom. Due to covid-19 there will be no official ceremony inside the cemetery. RidersUSA member's will ride into the cemetery as a group to honor those interred here. Any members wishing to stop and take pictures of their friend's or love one's grave site may do so.

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.
