Flame of Freedom Makes First Tribal Stop in 24 Years

This year marks the 24th year of the Rolling Thunder Flame of Freedom POW/MIA Ride and meeting in Washington D.C. but it is the first year an American Indian Tribe will host the torch lighting ceremony.

The Cheyenne & Arapaho Tribes in Concho, Oklahoma will kick-off the event on May 14 at 11 a.m. at the Pow-Wow Grounds.

“The Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes are incredibly humble and proud to honor all of America’s veterans,” said Janice Prairie Chief-Boswell, Governor of the Cheyenne & Arapaho Tribes. “It’s also an opportunity to honor our Warrior Veterans who we highly admire and are grateful for their service.”

The Flame of Freedom in making its way across the United States to Washington D.C. is a symbol of hope, lighting the way home for Prisoners of War/Missing In Action—America’s silent heroes.

The torch will light the candles at the Vietnam Wall over Memorial Day weekend.
