Hundreds of motorcycles were on the road Saturday morning to honor fallen soldiers and the American flag. It was the inaugural Stars and Stripes Ride in South Bend.

The event originally expected 100 riders, but instead saw 300 riders take to the road to honor those who served and fought for this country. A number of veterans were in attendance including United States Army veteran Wayne Zwierzynski.

"A lot of people think it's all about barbeques and stuff. As veterans, it means a lot more. We've lost friends. We've lost comrades, brothers in arms if you will," Zwierzynski said.

All the money raised during the Stars and Stripes Ride will go to the Flag Awareness Program. This program teaches students about the American flag as well as replaces any worn flags. Director and Founder of the program Michael Wells says he wants to use the money to become a non-profit organization.
