Women Will Be Honored At This Year’s Freedom Run

Posted by wlpo on June 14, 2013

Often forgotten, women in the military will especially be remembered at this year’s Illinois Motorcycle Freedom Run in Marseilles.

“Women in the Military” is the theme of Saturday’s ceremony along the Illinois River.  Of the over 76 hundred names on the Middle East Conflicts Memorial Wall, nearly 200 are women who died in Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts.

Thousands of motorcycles will leave the Grundy County Fairgrounds in Morris Saturday at 10:30.  They’ll arrive in downtown Marseilles before a 1 o’clock ceremony at the wall.
