9th Annual Rally for Troops, Sunday May 1, 2011 in Cleveland Public Square at 11 AM

On Sunday May 1, 2011 the 9th Annual Rally for Troops will take place rain, storm or whatever God brings to the ceremony. Your support and coverage is greatly appreciated by the many families that will be attending that are in the active military, veterans or family members of Ohio's Fallen Heroes.

While the world was focused on a joyful wedding in London, last night my wife and I attended a funeral mass in Sandusky Ohio for SFC Charles L. Adkins age 36, his friends called him Chuck, his wife called him husband and his five children called him daddy. On Sunday, two gold star families will be speaking to honor their son's, who gave their lives for our freedoms that he so often take for granted.

Our soldiers are willing to lay down their lives for the love of their country and I hope at tomorrow's Rally, North East Ohio will take time to remember those 244 young men and women from Ohio that have given their lives in the uniform of the American Soldier. The Rally will begin at 11 AM and conclude at 12 Noon. Parking is free at Tower City and Network Parking Lots. While their may be several hundred motorcycles braving the expected bad weather, hopefully the main transportation will by car or boats if the rain continues.

Thanks for the support of print, radio and televison media for recognizing the incredible sacrifices of our military, veterans and especially Ohio's Fallen Heroes.

Respectfully,

John "KIKS" Kikol

Proud Organizer of the Ra
