Tribute to the Troops Gold Star Ride


The 8th annual Tribute to the Troops Oregon Ride will honor Gold Star families in the local area this week.  The first event will honor the family of Lance Corporal Bryan Bertrand at 9:15 on Friday Morning. The riders will arrive at Bryan’s Home for a small ceremony that is open to the public. The day ride will include recognition of seven local families. Bryan’s Home is located off Highway 101 in North Bend and is being renovated to provide housing and skills training for veterans. It was named for Bertrand who was with the US Marines and was the first reported casualty from Oregon in Afghanistan. The 2-day ride will also raise funds for the 529 accounts for their children.
