Today, members of the Iron Warriors Motorcycle Club gathered from all over the country at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial to pay their respects to their fallen coworkers and friends.
The Iron Warriors Motorcycle Club (IWMC), is a non-profit organization consisting of active and retired law enforcement officers and firefighters who are dedicated to providing assistance and support to their communities, departments, families and members. Originally named the Wild Pigs Motorcycle Club (WPMC), the IWMC began in 1987 in the San Jose, California area, by police officers who owned Harley Davidson motorcycles, and who loved to ride with like-minded people.
Included in today’s event was an invocation, the presentation of colors by the District of Columbia Metropolitan Police Department Honor Guard, a musical tribute, brief remarks by Memorial Fund Chief Operating Officer Herbert Giobbi, and remarks from two of the IWMC chapter Presidents. The remarks were followed by a wreath laying at the memorial.
