Campus Motorcycle Rally Informs, Entertains, and Shows Appreciation for Veterans

Aug 06, 2012

On July 28th, the Fort Wayne Campus held a motorcycle rally for area veterans to educate local veterans about the Veterans Retraining and Assistance Program (VRAP) opportunity and to promote the Indiana Patriot Guard - a non-profit organization that creates flags for recently deceased veterans. The rally included music, BBQ, and visits from local legislators like Roy Buskirk, Allen County Councilman, and Sharon Tucker, County Council Candidate At-Large. Student Kevin Grant was instrumental in inviting and organizing the Indiana Patriot Guard’s participation. He worked to get signatures on a patriot flag from all attendees and presented it at the funeral of an Indiana Afghanistan veteran. Approximately 30 people from the veteran community attended. Veterans Sheryl Edwards and Matthew Murphy found the rally enjoyable and helpful at the same time. They both were pleased to learn that they qualified for the available VRAP benefits and enrolled in the campus’s supervisory management specialist program.
