Motorcycle riders from across the area fired up their two-wheeled rides and rode to Seguin on Saturday amidst to cool, rainy weather.
The riders, each at their own pace, headed out for a tour around the area with stops at the American Legion Post in Luling, Comanche Crossing on FM 467 and Pole Cats on State Highway 123 south, near the county line.
The cruise was in honor of veterans as part of the American Legion Riders Post 245’s 6th annual Nut Run.
The run is hosted each year to help raise funds for the veterans who reside in the Frank M. Tejeda Veterans Home in Floresville. Some of the veterans from there got the opportunity to come out for the day and enjoy an afternoon at the American Legion Hall talking with the riders and other fellow veterans.
“We support our veterans in the nursing homes. We visit them to make sure that they’re not forgotten,” American Legion Riders Secretary Felisa Ramirez said.
The funds help support the Legion’s work at the home, making sure that the veterans are remembered every day.
They are the ones who served the country in various wars, vowing to protect all of its residents.
But this is only one of the many things the American Legion Post 245 and the American Legion Riders Post 245 do to honor and remember all of the area’s veterans, and serve the community at large. The only way it can continue to do so is with the community’s help.
