Patriot Tour 2019 makes flag transfer at Waukon ...

The Nation of Patriots, a volunteer organization with a mission to provide financial support to families of wounded military veterans who have made sacrifices in service to their country, brought its 2019 Patriot Tour through Waukon Sunday, May 19 as part of its annual three-month summer tour across the country. Tour participants display a United States flag which is transferred between riders at each designated stop along the tour that will travel the contiguous 48 United States before it will finally end up back at its original starting location in Beaver Dam, WI in early September.

Approximately 20 riders from Fennimore, WI brought the flag to Waukon Sunday afternoon, May 19, stopping at Waukon Harley-Davidson for a Tour stop (pictured above), where the flag was ceremoniously transferred for its next leg of the Tour to Waterloo. Pictured at right, left to right, in the ceremony at Waukon Harley-Davidson, Waukon native Kevin Herman accepts the flag transfer for the next Tour leg from Patriot Tour rider Tim Roghers of Fennimore, WI.
