Event Description Back in 2004 the motorcycle community of Illinois built a beautiful Middle East Conflict Wall Memorial, in Marseilles, Illinois, commemorating the service men & women who have lost their lives in worldwide conflicts since 1967. This is the first time in the history of the United States that a Memorial had been erected while the conflict was ongoing.

The names on this Wall Memorial represent our Fallen Heroes from Conflicts in such diverse locations as Panama, Lebanon Barrack Bombing, the Balkins, Grenada, Somalia, Haiti, USS Cole Bombing, USS Stark, The Terrorist Attacks in Italy, Greece, Scotland, The Gulf Storm, Desert Storm/Shield, Afghanistan War, Iraq War & current War of Terror.

Each year on the 3rd Saturday of June we host The Illinois Motorcycle Freedom Run starting at Grundy County Fairgrounds, Morris , IL. The 30 mile backroads bike run ends in Marseilles, Il. at The Middle East Conflicts Wall Memorial. There's a honor & remembrance ceremony & then a Celebration of Freedom Street rally w vendors , food, and live music!
All proceeds support the ongoing maintenance of The Wall.
