Veterans, bikers and citizens honor soldiers whose fate is uncertain

Wearing their club "colors" emblazoned on their leather jackets, the several dozen bikers had earlier led a two-wheeled procession to the summit to launch the event.

During the ceremony's proceedings, the bikers, representing the Patriot Guard, Legion Guard and Red Knights motorcycle groups, stood at attention holding large American flags, as they had in their thunderous parade up the mountain.

Holding one of the flags in the lineup, biker Don Amorosi said he had joined the ceremony to show families of missing soldiers that they will always be remembered.

"I don't care if you're on two wheels, four wheels or 18 wheels, participating in an event like this is terribly important in raising the visibility of the POW-MIA issue," he said. "We have an obligation to keep it in the forefront among Americans."

After the ceremony, participants and spectators socialized were presented with refreshments at the Lake George American Legion Post No. 374.
