Every year Nation of Patriots™ organizes a national effort that pays tribute to, and honors, all of America’s Armed Forces - Past, Present, and Fallen. This united effort is known as the Patriot Tour™.
The Patriot Tour™ traditionally begins during Memorial Day weekend. A massive group of riders escorts one American Flag on the back of a motorcycle to the first of many destinations. Upon arrival, the flag is transferred to the new escort. The next day the Flag is escorted to another designated location...and on and on for over 100 days, through all 48 continental states. The Flag finally makes it full circle and lands right back in WI where several thousand Americans gather to honor America's Military members and raise support for those wounded in their service. This is the Patriot Tour™.
It’s the very foundation of the American Flag and all it represents that our brave men and women in the military have stood and died defending, continue to stand and protect, and will forever fight for.
Nation of Patriots™ was formed in 2008 and achieved our exempt status in early 2009. We launched the very first Patriot Tour™ in 2009. Our humble start has led to a huge following across the country and we continue to work on this upward growth. Our focus has been and always will be this: to provide financial support to those who have served in our Armed Forces and their families. These individuals have volunteered their lives in the preservation, protection and future of The United States and all of its citizens. For this we are grateful.
Nation of Patriots™ is a 501(C)3 nonprofit organization. We work on a national level to promote the awareness of and financially support the physical, emotional, and economic misfortune that our wounded veterans and their families are living with today and everyday.
We work to unite Americans beneath the banner or Flag and behind the men and women serving in the Armed Forces. We raise money through our national network and distribute it directly to the families we strive to support. The families are selected for us mostly through the VA Hospital network.
We are a 100% volunteer nonprofit. We give 100% of all donations received directly to the veterans we strive to help. We work with VA facilities and many other veteran organizations to help us locate and select the veteran families based on specific criteria.
The Nation of Patriots ride will make a stop in Pensacola at the Veterans Memorial Park at 1300 on Sunday July 30th to raise the flag over Pensacola.
