An emotional ride

At least 100 motorcycle-riders, including veterans, came out Thursday to escort the Michigan Vietnam Veteran Traveling Memorial from the VFW Walsh Post No. 4499 in Manistee to Little River Casino and Resort, located at 2700 Orchard Highway in Manistee, as part of the organization’s Thunder at the River weekend-long event. The Michigan Vietnam Traveling Memorial is engraved with the names of the men and women from Michigan who died in the Vietnam War. Murphy said the event is a fundraiser that gives a majority of the money to veteran-affiliated causes around the state which are selected by a committee.
