First there was the Thunder Run through Baghdad. Now another intrepid band will make a foray deep into an adversary’s urban enclave. This time it is the Vets for McCain motorcycle ride through Philadelphia, Sunday October 26. The ride starts at 1008 Arch St. (McCain HQ) at 2 pm and will wend through the city to the Obama campaign office and back. Vets or civilian supporters who want to join the ride should show up at 1 pm.
The ride will feature special guest Captain Rod Knutson, USN Ret., recipient of the Distinguished Flying Cross, two Silver Stars, two Bronze Stars and a POW in Vietnam for just under 2800 days. Refreshments will be provided after the ride and the group will premier a new documentary about Medal of Honor recipients.
If you want to ride, or just want to turn out to show your support, take it to the streets of Philly on October 26!
