Sgt. Daniel Vasselian Motorcycle Run

My little hometown of Abington MA has a lot of hometown pride. Today a motorcycle run was held in honor of a hometown hero........Sgt Daniel Vasselian........a Marine who was killed while serving in Afghanistan in December.
You may recall the blogpost about Danny's homecoming. If not, please copy  and paste the following link to view:

Last week a group of volunteers in town got together to make replacement yellow ribbons to hang along the motorcycle route, along with American flags. These items were all donated by local businesses and local residents. Abington shows it's pride very well.



We had spotty showers and light drizzle during the motorcycle run, but that didn't stop the hundreds of motorcyclists, and the hundreds of people along the route who paid tribute to a fallen hero.



My thoughts are with the Vasselian and Doyle families, and I'm sure they felt the love today.

GOD BLESS AMERICA
