 Most Americans have heard the adage "Freedom is never free." Events in recent years have proven the young men and women of our armed forces are paying the ultimate price in increasing numbers. We are all proud of our active duty personnel and their counterparts in the veteran's community. How do we truly thank those whom we owe so much?

The Ride Around Michigan began in 2004 as a way for everyone to participate in honoring the sons and daughters of Michigan with three days of remembrance. The journey takes motorcycle riders through each of the 83 counties in Michigan. Each chapter within Forgotten Eagles® holds remembrence ceremonies to honor all those who have served and who currently serve our country. The Freedom Ride, done in conjunction with the annual Ride Around Michigan (RAM) is dedicated to our fallen brothers and sisters and the POW/MIA's. The ride begins at Snowbowl Road just south of Houghton Lake. Police escorted down US 27 to the C&S Harley Davidson in Mt. Pleasant where more riders are picked up and then continues from there to the Michigan Vietnam Memorial at Island Park in Mt. Pleasant.
