An honor guard of all branches of the U.S. military assemble on the victory podium at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway prior to the opening ceremonies of the 5th Annual Red Bull Indianapolis MotoGP in August 2012.
On this Sunday, November 11, 2012, Stu's Shots would like to salute and thank all of the men and women of this great nation who have given their time, their lives and their relentless spirit and resolve to defend this land of ours of the red, white and blue.
The stars and stripes of the United States hangs over the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii in December 2004.
God Bless you all and thank you for your service and may He always be looking over your shoulder as He does with this great country of ours, The United States of America!
American Motorcyclist Association salutes veterans
"There has long been a special relationship between motorcyclists and veterans," said Rob Dingman, AMA president and CEO. "Today, on Veterans Day, we honor that relationship, and salute America's veterans for their devotion to serving our country.
"The patriotism, dedication and valor of American servicemen and women is unmatched anywhere in world," Dingman said. "Our veterans have put their lives on the line in the defense of our principles and freedoms, and we must never forget the sacrifices they've made on our behalf."
