Semper Fi Ride Across America with Maj Bill Conner – Memorial Day Weekend

Apr 24, 2011 - May 28, 2011

Nationwide — Maj Bill Conner finishes his Ride Across America!!!
Maj Conner states, “May 27th, 6:45pm: Mission Accomplished!”

An update from Bill: “May 27th, 6:45pm: Mission Accomplished! The day started out being ferried in a boat from Annapolis across the Chesapeake Bay since bikes are not allowed on the Chesapeake Bridge and then biked 95 miles through Oceanview, DE to Bethany Beach, DE and I dipped my front tire into the Atlantic Ocean. The Semper Fi Ride Across America ended up being 3113 miles across this great country and I got a chance to meet some incredible people. Thank you everybody who has already donated and if you would still like to donate to the Semper Fi Fund I still have not reached my goal. www.SemperFiRideAcrossAmerica.com . Please keep all the Marines who are still deployed in Afghanistan in your prayers and all those service members who have made the ultimate sacrifice during this Memorial Day weekend.”
