Day of Remembrance

 

 

On Sunday, September 11th, Able Forces sponsored a Remembrance Event to commemorate the 10 year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.  The event, held at Grove's Harley Davidson in Winchester Virginia,  began with a ceremony featuring the Wall of Honor, celebrating the young men and women in the area who have given their lives in service.  The featured event was a morning Motorcycle Rally taking riders through the beautiful Shenandoah Valley with an emotional slow-roll through the grounds of the VA Medical Center, in Martinsburg West Virginia. The afternoon featured entertainment and music by local artists and those from Nashville; booths of crafts, food, and a variety of military organizations; and games and fun for the entire family.  Special thanks to all those who came to participate in this great event.  Check out our photo album under Photos to see more fun images from the event.
