Veterans to hold march/bike ride to commemorate Liberation Day

420

Got Your 671 (GY671), a community of veterans, in partnership with the Freedom Grinderz — comprised of avid cyclists, many of whom are veterans and serve in the Guam Army and Air National Guard — will be hosting a first-ever “Liberation Day-Never leave a Fallen Comrade” combined Foot March and Bike Ride.

The event will commemorate Guam’s Liberation Day and raise awareness about veteran suicide and combat-related Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

It will take place on Liberation Day, July 21, 2020, with a 22 combined mile march/ride starting simultaneously at 6:00 a.m. from 2 points — 11 miles from the Andersen Airforce Base front gate and 11 miles from the Navy Base front gate and ending at Ypao Beach Park in Tumon.

The 22-mile march is representative of the national average number of veterans who commit suicide a day.

The march will be conducted in an interval formation to ensure the health and safety of
participants. The start time is 6:00 a.m.

Got Your 671 (GY671) is a diverse community of veterans unified in their mission to
work towards strengthening the veteran community and creating a positive lifestyle.

The organization welcomes the participation and support of the community and kindly asks that motorists drive with caution and show their support by waving or honking their horns in support of the veterans and supporters participating in the event.
