Torches Across America (TAA) is a motorcycle ride for all riders who want to show their respect to everyone who lost their lives and to the family's who lost their loved ones on that sad morning of September 11, 2001. TAA takes nine days, starting on the West Coast (Sept 3rd). Ride the whole trip, just through your state or a few miles when it comes in your area. If you can not take time to ride on the ride, everyone is welcome to be with us at any of the stops we make going across the country.

TAA 3/11/2012 ride update

Hi Everyone,

Once again Troy, IL Mayor Tom Caraker Sr., VFW Post 976 and the city citizens want Torches Across America riders to join them for their 9/11 Memorial Service as the TAA riders cross America. He is a great person and I thank him and all the wonderful citizens of Troy, IL very much for inviting us.

Milt Eddington gave me this information a few days ago. Milt is working with Mayor Tom Caraker Sr. and he is also a member of VFW Post 976 and Illinois Patriot Guard Riders. Your super Milt and thank you for your help.

Any TAA rider that has ever went to Troy, IL for their 9/11 Memorial Service has never forgotten it. It is defiantly a memory worth repeating. The citizens of Troy, IL at that time show how much the heart land of America feels about our great Nation.

They also invite other cities around them to join in and that makes it even more special because it shows how united our country is. Now I am going to repeat something a crazy Russian “Yakov Smirnoff” from my area of America says a lot. “What A Country”.

I can not leave out this super person I have to thank for helping in Troy and Collinsville, IL, and he is Fat Fred. Fat Fred is a member of Collinsville, IL VFW Post 5691 and Illinois Patriot Guard Riders.

Have a great day.

Gary Covert
