What a huge turnout by A Hero’s Welcome, SBMC and WWR to bring our Hero home in style. Thanks to all who made this welcome SUPER!!! please take a moment and check out the photos from today’s welcome.
Ride Report by Dan O’Kane:
A HEROS WELCOME was leaving the Philadelphia Airport with over 100 motorcycles and ou HERO Spc. Richard Burns , US ARMY on a VERY HOT Memorial Day . As we were going past the terminals on the way out something caught my eye . Standing on the curbof one of the terminals was a little old lady , all by herself , with her hand over her heart as we drove by.
Couldn’t slow down or stop to take a picture of this patriotic lady but something tells me I will NEVER forget this image . God Bless Her !!

We will be welcoming home Spc. Richard Burns, US Army on Memorial Day! What a wonderful way to see a Hero come home! Second Brigade MC will be leading the way 5/28 from the airport to American Legion Post 507!
The SBMC has stepped up to assist us as part of AWWC so we could make sure all our Hero’s coming home have the proper Welcome. The RC for the mission will be SBMC member Rabbit. Please let’s get out and support SBMC , they have supported us in our missions and if possible lets get out and do the same.
