Bike Show Aims to Help Veterans See Their Memorial

Posted: Updated:

Motorcycle enthusiasts hope to send veterans to Washington D.C. as part of an annual event.

The Iron Horse Bike Show picks a different cause every year that all their proceeds go to.
In its eighth year, organizers chose the Korean War Hero Flight.

Bikers also hope to escort the bus carrying veterans to their flight in Omaha later this year.

Harley Owners Association Assistant Director Tom Gallentine said veterans and bikers just seem to go together.

Groups from the Korean, Vietnam and Afghan conflicts attended the show.

There are 60 bikes and 23 vendors this year, but Gallentine said attendance is down.
Organizers blame the weather, which was also a problem last year when the show was snowed out one day.

The show continues Sunday from noon until 5 p.m.
