A group of veterans is paying tribute to all those who have served in the armed forces. The organization Nation of Patriots is holding their annual Patriot Tour. It takes an American Flag through everyone of the 48 contiguous states.
On Friday, Aug. 11, 2017, the group arrived in West Virginia. The group rode in to the Veteran's Memorial and West Virginia Welcome Center on Route 460 at noon. They had held a ceremony and transferred the flag to the rider who will take it on the next leg. The riders will depart for Roanoke on Saturday, Aug. 12.
