Motorcycle riders rolled through Eastern and Central Kentucky Sunday, September 2, to honor the National Guard.
The "Ride II Remember" ended in a rally at the Healing Field in Lawrenceburg.
“Some National Guard people get over looked when they are killed overseas, and it's just a way to remember them even better,” said Guardsman Joshua Hedrick.
Concerts began at 1:00p.m. along with live and silent auctions to raise money for the construction of a National Guard memorial.
Officials said they expected nearly 1,000 riders to start from 25 different locations throughout the state.
“The freedom to ride is just like the freedom of speech you can do what you love to do but also in doing what you love to do you can help others and make their lives better,” said Ride Captain Wendell Lewis
The memorial in Frankfort will display the names of 141 Guardsmen who have been killed in action.
