About Event

The 2014 Milwaukee Armed Forces Week, to be held Monday, May 12 – Saturday, May 17, invites the public to attend several exciting events throughout the week to show support of our troops. This year’s theme is “Forward with Dignity.”

The 11th Annual Support the Troops Ride will take place Saturday, May 17. This day-long event will kick off at 9 a.m. with registration and a complimentary pancake and sausage breakfast at Hal’s Harley-Davidson Dealership, located at 1925 S. Moorland Road in New Berlin. From there, the Support the Troops Ride will begin at 11 a.m. All motorcyclists are welcome. The ride will end at noon with a memorial ceremony at the Harley-Davidson Museum, located at 400 W. Canal Street in Milwaukee. The ceremony will include a 21-gun salute, taps and a wreath laying. 

The 2014 Milwaukee Armed Forces Week, to be held Monday, May 12 – Saturday, May 17, is a joint effort of the Milwaukee Armed Services Committee, comprised of members of the United States Army, Navy, Air Forces, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and National Guard, as well as Milwaukee-area citizens and veterans. Its mission is to increase public understanding of the role of the military in a democratic society as well as honor and acknowledge Milwaukee area men and women serving in the Armed Forces of the United States.
