“This picture was taken by my daughter, Jessica Davis, who was following 75 + motorcycles as we made our way from Albany, OR onto Troutdale, Hood River and The Dalles picking up more riders as we went. We crossed over the Columbia River at Biggs Junctions making our way to Stonehenge Veteran War Memorial. If you have never been there it is worth the drive. The view of the Columbia River to Mt Hood is breath taking.
This Silent ride was to raise awareness of PTSD in memory of Sergeant Kevin Ross who left us on Sept 14th, 2014. He was a 27-year-old young man from Corvallis, OR who did 2 tours of duty and when he came home in mental and physical pain, life as he knew before, just was not the same. He was polite, kind hearted and volunteered at the local animal centers “playing with the kitties” and dogs. We miss his beard, his tattoo’s and the joy he brought to our daughter, Megan. We were hoping he would become our son-in-law. That is just how special he was to us.
Please reach out to a friend, to a fellow Veteran or to a loved one. So many of us live with Kevin’s act everyday and I know he never meant to cause that pain to any of us. God bless our Veterans. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your service and to our country.
