‘Joe’ to lead honor guard riders in veterans celebration

A group of more than 100 American Legion and Patriot Guard riders will escort the Vietnam Wall and American Veterans Traveling Tribute from Tyler to Ennis on Wednesday, and a special guest will lead the procession once it reaches Sokol Hall.
The Veteran’s Tribute Motorcycle, with rider Gary Towers of Granbury, will join the procession at that point, as will a number of other area riders who are scheduled to meet up with the caravan at Sokol.

The Veteran’s Tribute Motorcycle, named Joe, was borne from an idea for a cycle that has been a long time dream of Towers, who is a Vietnam veteran. He says his dream became an obsession of the heart — to build a bike in tribute to American veterans.
