The Third Annual Extortion 17 Memorial Ride will be held on Saturday, August 2, 2014. The Memorial Ride is dedicated to the memory of 30 active duty military servicemen and 1 military working dog killed in action on August 6, 2011 when a CH-47 helicopter was shot down by enemy fire in Afghanistan. The Memorial Ride provides an opportunity for the community to gather and commemorate the Heroes of August 6, and to rally in a show of support for Gold Star families. This event not only ensures that their sacrifice is remembered, but it also serves as a fundraiser for families of fallen US service members via the 31Heroes Project, in partnership with the Travis Manion Foundation.
Green Devil Garage is pleased to announce that it will build a new motorcycle to be auctioned off at this year’s ride. This marks the second year the company will support the Extortion 17 Memorial Ride with an original design motorcycle. Last year at the Second Annual Extortion 17 Memorial Ride, Green Devil Garage’s custom bobber was the most valuable auction item, drawing $24,500 for the aforementioned charities. NRA American Warrior wrote about the tribute motorcycle.
The Veteran-owned-operated small business is looking to raise $20,000 towards the build of this year’s custom bike. Donations will cover the cost of custom parts for the build. Any overage in donations will be forwarded to the The Travis Manion Foundation.
