A motorcycle ride to commemorate 9/11 and to celebrate first responders begins at the Joseph Diehn American Legion Post #468 in Sylvania, Ohio on September 7, 2013. After a free breakfast for first responders and civil service workers and a ceremony including a 21-gun salute, they and other riders head out to other American Legion posts in the area. The event concludes with a steak dinner at the post.
