Army tribute bike on display for 9/11

The Army tribute bike will be on display Sept. 11. 

The Army tribute bike, also known as the 9/11 bike, is a tribute to friends and family who have served in the U.S. Army.

The bike is inspired by retired Capt. Mike DeFelice, who enlisted after the 9/11 attack and donated some of his medals, accoutrements and insignia to place on the bike.

In the bike’s saddle bags is one of the 10 American flags DeFelice flew proudly on his vehicles while he was deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The bike will be on display Sept. 11 at Plaza Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, 2077 U.S. 44 West in Inverness for all to see.
