THE RETURN Memorial Day Weekend 2015 in Washington DC
The Return is the welcome home celebration for the Vietnam Veteran who served their country in a time of need. This event will spot light our Vietnam Veterans by giving them the Hero’s Welcome and Thank You they never received. It will reach out to all Veterans, Veteran Organizations and military supporters all over the world for their participation in the event.

It begins with Vietnam Veterans motorcycling from Louisiana to Los Angeles. There, Veterans will board a plane for Vietnam. Upon arrival in Vietnam they return to motorcycles to take a preplanned tour of key locations and the areas the Veterans served.

On their return to Los Angeles they will ride to Washington, D.C. to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall to honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.  A Welcome Home Vietnam Veteran Celebration will take place in D.C. to honor the Vietnam Veteran on the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War.
