Moving the location should not be an option! The purpose of the ride is to bring home POW / MIA troops. It is a ride thru DC to get the government to act on bringing them home. The organization helps raise money and support to make it happen. All of those bikes riding thru DC are to help raise awareness of the issue. Evidentially the ones in charge of the event have not done a very good job at making that fact known based on your post.Like many charitable organizations and clubs they usually rely on a few key people at the top to keep things going. They can get lots of vocal support but it ends there. Not many step up to the plate to take some of the physical or mental load. 32 years of running this ride the organizers have to be commended for all they've done.
Hopefully someone steps up to the plate when they realize the ride is in crisis to either take it over as-is or perhaps move it to a location that is easier to administer.
Not unless you mean they changed the name to include all vets and not just the ones from WW1.And did you catch the point being made?
