THE WEIRS TIMES & THE COCHECO TIMES, Thursday, June 14, 2018
LACONIA motorcycle WEEK 2018 Northeast Pow/Mia Network Vigil And Freedom Ride Thursday, June 14th is 25th Anniversary of the Freedom Ride and the 30th Anniversary of the weekly Vigil. This year’s guest speaker will be Deborah Crosby, whose father Lt. Cmdr. Frederick P. Crosby, was shot down as a Navy pilot in the Vietnam War, it was June 1965. Deborah Crosby, was only six when she was sent home from the first grade to learn her father was presumed dead, though his body had not been found. Lt. Cmdr. Frederick P. Crosby’s remains were returned to his family last year. Anyone riding should plan on being at Lowe’s, 1407 Lake Shore Road in Gilford. Plan on being there by 5:45pm. Riders will be leaving the parking lot by 6pm with
a state trooper escort down route 3 to “The Rock” Hesky Park. The New Hampshire Army National Guard will be joining in support of the Northeast POW/MIA Network Freedom Ride. The National Guard Hummer will be the last vehicle in the ride following the parade of bikes to Meredith. * If you are riding with a group we ask that you arrive with the group and fall into the line up ~ we will not allow bumping in the line for safety reasons. *No vehicles other than the hummer will be allowed to be in with the motorcycles. Even if you are not a rider you can participate. You can arrive by vehicle by way of Route 106 N. As has been stated for
the many years. Faith, Trust, Truth, Responsibility and Accountability are still important. Over the years people from the area, state and country have gathered in support of those POW’s who have returned, their family, as well as those who did not and those MIAs and the abundance of evidence that shows they were left behind. The theme this year is “When one American life is not worth the effort, we as Americans have lost” is still a fact and today with American soldiers serving in harm’s way, is even more important. We as American must stay vigilant on their behalf in support of their families. This issue belongs to Everyone!
