The Baton Rouge Chapter of the Nation of Patriots is hosting the 9th Annual Passing the Flag Event this weekend.
This event is part of the nation-wide 2018 Patriot Tour.
During the Patriot Tour an American flag travels 14,000 mile in 110 day through 48 states.
The purpose is to honor America’s past, present and fallen Armed Forces personnel.
The Flag is transported city to city by motorcycle enthusiasts who want to do their part to support our troops.
This effort is to raise awareness of the Nation of Patriots cause to financially support families of wounded veterans.
All donations collected locally stay here in our state to help support Louisiana veterans.
The flag will be in Baton Rouge Friday.
A special event is planned for Saturday at the American Legion Nicholson Post 38 located at 151 Woodale Blvd.
The ceremony is set to being at 9:00 a.m.
After the ceremony riders will escort the flag to it’s next destination in Biloxi, MS.
