This Band of Brothers and Sisters, helping each other get through life and the journey to Sturgis, along with fellow veterans, citizens, groups and sponsors supporting this campaign, are the Founding members of The Next Great Tradition.

The inspiration for the ride and campaign began when Indian Dave and Johnny Reno, both Army Airborne veterans who met by chance on their way to the Sturgis Rally in 2014. Dave and Johnny were in the same Army Airborne Unit but served at different times. Dave’s active duty service was over 30 years ago, while Johnny’s was more recent.

Every Thursday Night at 19:00 Weekly POW/ MIA vigil Meredith, NH

Every Thursday evening at 7:00 PM, people gather at Hersky Park located in Meredith, New Hampshire. The Thursday evening Vigils started in 1989 in an effort to raise awareness about the abandonment of Prisoners of War and those Missing In Action. The First Vigil lasted 15 minutes; one minute to symbolize each year since the United States declared; "There are no more prisoners in Southeast Asia. They are all dead." The vigil now spans 32 minutes. The Meredith POW/ MIA Vigil is believed to be the longest consecutively-held vigil in the United States. There has never been an unattended vigil since its inception. Vigil goers have weathered rain, sleet, snow, hail, thunder, lightning, and even temperatures of -37° F.
