Governor Scott Walker attended the closing ceremony of the Nation of Patriots' Patriot Tour. The Nation of Patriots rides each year to honor and pay tribute to past, present, and fallen American service members.
"Our veterans and service members deserve our most humble gratitude," Governor Walker said. "These individuals have sacrificed an extraordinary amount for our country to protect our freedoms. It is now our duty to thank them every day and remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice."
The Nation of Patriots' Patriot Tour spans 100 days, 14,000 miles, and 48 states each year. Founded in Wisconsin in 2009, the tour's goal is to honor and thank our service members and veterans. Funds raised during the ride provide financial support to families of wounded veterans.
