NH Freedom Ride: 6/18/15


The Freedom Ride brings riders to The State’s Original POW/MIA Memorial, “The Rock”, at Hesky Park in Meredith where members of the Northeast POW/MIA Network conduct a vigil to honor those forgotten by our government.The Northeast POW/MIA Network vigil in Meredith gained nationwide attention some 27 years ago when a small group of veterans began holding weekly Thursday night vigils to bring to light the nation’s lack of effort to account for all service men and women missing from Vietnam.

Through times of basking heat, ridged rain storms and mid-winter snows, this small group of people held vigils to gain people’s attention to the fact that members of our armed forces were unaccounted for and forgotten.

If you are unable to participate in the Freedom Ride, please make time to be at Hesky Park for the vigil that begins at 7PM. All are welcome ~ IF YOU ARE NOT A RIDER ~ Please join us ~ you can arrive by vehicle by way of Route 106 N. There is plenty of parking and your voice is important!
