Over two thousand Nevadan Marine Riders lined up on the road going to Hoover Dam morning of May 26th, the day before Memorial Day. All of the riders had American flags attached to the back of their rides and rode across Hoover dam. The Marine Riders have been doing this every Memorial’s day weekend for 25 years now. After they rode to the dam, they went to witness the Green Beret Memorial ceremony in Southern Nevada Veterans Cemetery in Boulder City.
