Robert “Biker Bob Cooch” Kuczera (right) spoke with Tim Chandler about the Middle East Conflicts Wall Memorial during Easter Jeep Safari at the Old Spanish Trail Arena on Friday, April 14.

Kuczera attends Jeep Safari each year to raise awareness about the memorial. The names of soldiers killed in action during the previous year are etched into the granite slabs on the wall in Marseilles, Illinois, after Memorial Day.

The soldiers – along with their families and friends – are also honored at the annual Illinois Motorcycle Freedom Run during the third weekend in June.
