ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The men and women who have or continue to serve our country were honored in Albany. 75 Albany Harley Davidson riders escorted Operation One Voice runners to the Civic Center Veteran's park during their Veteran's Day parade.

Operation One Voice helps raise funds and awareness for the financial needs of the children and families of those wounded and fallen in Special Operation Forces. The OOV participants are running 650 miles from Atlanta to Busch Gardens in Tampa, Florida.

"During my time, in the Vietnam era, we did not get any support. A lot of our Vietnam Vets were spat on and called names, myself included.

And we are showing support for the men and women who are serving in Iraq, Afghanistan and anywhere over seas," said In dependant Harley Riders President, Paul Murray.

This is the first time Albany Harley Davidson Riders had an organized parade and they plan to make this an annual event for Veteran's Day.
