Bruce Heilman is a 89 year old Marine Veteran who refuses to give up his freedom to ride. Heilman is a World War II Veteran Marine who fought in The Battle of Okinawa and also survived a plane crash on Iwo Jima.
In remembrance of our fallen heroes, Heilman participated in a 6,000 mile cross country ride to Arlington National Cemetery, where many Americans go to pay tribute and honor soldiers who never made it back home. On his journey, he was greeted by the Patriot Guard Riders of Salt Lake City Utah to escort him to the memorial.
