BOUNTIFUL, Utah — A cross-country motorcycle ride honoring fallen soldiers made a stop in Bountiful.
“They will tell you that their biggest fear is that the community at large will forget their fallen service member, and so when they see us pull up, you already see the tears in their eyes, knowing that, ‘Hey, people out there care,'” said Warren Williamson with the Tribute to Fallen Soldiers.
On Tuesday, the traveling tribute pulled up outside the home of PFC Cody Hendrickson who was killed in a boating accident while serving in the U.S Army back in 2011.
The group presented his family with a plaque, honoring their son’s service.
The motorcycle riders travel with a memorial flame on their route from Eugene Oregon to Arlington National Cemetery.
This year, 75 fallen soldiers will be recognized and honored during this summer’s journey.
