This year will be the 9th annual SIWOH motorcycle escort for recovering wounded veterans receiving treatment at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC) in Bethesda, Maryland. This is not a fundraiser and there are no cost to participate other than fuel and tolls for each individual rider along the escort route. Also, this is not publicly advertised escort. Participants are by invite only. We have receive this notice as an invitation. Please do not forward this invitation to anyone without getting the approval.

The escort is coordinated by the Nam Knights of America MC with the cooperation and leadership from the AMVETS John R. Tamburri Memorial POST 917 in Staten Island, New York.

This is a two stage escort. We are responsible for the first stage which is to escort the recovering veterans to the Delaware Memorial Bridge. We will have the assistance from uniformed Montgomery County Police and escort the veterans from Walter Reed to the Delaware Memorial Bridge. Once we reach the Memorial Bridge we will have a short (30mins) stop for the veterans to use the restroom and stretch their legs. this will give also to many of us to greet and thank the veterans for their service.

We will be met by another large contingency of Veterans and Law Enforcement MC's with the New Jersey State Police who will escort the veterans to New York City (Second Stage)

If anyone is interested with continuing with the escort to NYC you are more than welcome. The escort makes a couple of other stops along the turnpike to pick up additional riders.

This is a wonderful experience, specially for those that never rode one.

Save the day and promise yourself to be on time.
