Special Mission

John Mitchell

US Marine Corp Veteran

Massena, NY - 08/05/2022


Mission applies to the following Region(s):

Region 3, Region 4

About the Mission:

The family of John Mitchell has requested a motorcycle tribute past his home. John Mitchell has been fighting an aggressive cancer and now is under Hospice care. The initial date of this motorcycle tribute was going to be Monday, however, the family has stated the sooner the better due to his failing condition. John Mitchell served in the United States Marine Corp and was an avid motorcycle rider. John Mitchell's step-daughter informed me this show of respect would mean a lot to her dad. I encourage all riders to attend this event to pay their respects to a fellow rider.
