Local bikers help out fundraiser for Talons Out: Honor Flight

WEST MICHIGAN (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Local bikers held a special poker run Sunday to honor area veterans.

The group gathered in Marshall for breakfast, and made stops in Battle Creek, Schoolcraft, and Decatur to meet with local veterans.

The event raises money for Talons Out: Honor Flight this September.

The group files World War II veterans to Washington, D.C. to see the memorials.

"This allows them to open up and share their experiences with their families, and it's important information we need to get out there before it's gone, because we're losing our veterans at a rate of 1,000 a day, and it's their legacy we need to carry on," said Bobbie Bradley, the Talons Out President.
