SCRANTON, Pa. -- Motorcycle riders participated in the 19th annual Salute to Veterans Ride on Sunday.

The event kicked off at the Gino Merli Veterans Center on Penn Avenue in Scranton. The police-escorted ride made its way through Lackawanna County and then back to the center for a picnic.

The ride, organized by Rolling Thunder, aims to raise awareness for veterans' issues.

All money raised at the ride benefits veterans and the POW/MIA issue.
