Patriot Tour to arrive in Waukon August 27

Every year thousands of motorcyclists ride for the members of the military - to show America's support, thanks, and united pride by carrying one American flag throughout the country, passing it through all lower 48 states, carried by 100 riders in 100 days. The ride stops overnight at a Harley-Davidson dealership every night.  That dealer’s HOG Chapter carries it to another dealer the next day.
This effort, organized by The Nation of Patriots to pay tribute to, and honor, all of America's armed forces - past, present and fallen, is known as The Patriot Tour. Anyone wishing to learn more about the Patriot Tour can do so at their website
This year, the Patriot Tour began May 24 during Memorial Day weekend at Badger Harley-Davidson in Madison, WI.  The flag will complete its full circle and land back in Madison, WI over Labor Day weekend.
The Patriot flag will arrive at Waukon Harley-Davidson, carried by the Albert Lea HOG Chapter from Albert Lea, MN Wednesday, August 27 at approximately 2:30 p.m.  after being escorted through downtown Waukon by the Waukon Police Department. This will be the Flag’s only Iowa stop. The Waukon HOG Chapter has received the flag and carried it home to Badger Harley-Davidson in Madison, WI four years in a row, accompanied by members of the La Crosse HOG Chapter.
This year the schedule requires the flag to remain at Waukon Harley-Davidson until Saturday, August 30, when it will leave at 6 a.m. to be carried home to Badger Harley-Davidson in Madison, WI by members of the Waukon and La Crosse, WI HOG Chapters.
It is not necessary for a motorcyclist to be a HOG member to accompany the flag. Anyone wishing to accompany the flag should contact Waukon HOG Chapter Director Steve Trumblee at 608-306-0138 before Saturday, August 30.  Anyone wanting to just accompany the Flag through Waukon Wednesday, August 27 should call before that day.
