The "Ride to the Wall" is a CVMA National Event hosted by the five Virginia CVMA Chapters. This is a celebration for all our fallen comrades, the Vietnam Memorial is a symbol of this respect. The event starts on Friday night 25 May 2018 when most of the members arrive in Northern Virginia with a meet and greet at the Primetime Sports Bar (map below).
On Saturday morning, 26 May 2018, members will rally at the Primetime Sports Bar (map below) for the start of the ride.
Following the presentation of a wreath at the wall, members are invited to the American Legion Post 180 in Vienna Virginia (map below) for the Chuck and Barb Alwine Annual Memorial Day Picnic. Come and share food, drink and a good time with your CVMA brothers and sisters.
