The First Annual Charlie Mike Memorial Ride was held by the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association (CVMA), NC 15-1. The ride was on August 6-7, 2010.
"Charlie Mike" means the letters "CM", which means "Continue the Mission."
This was a 1,000-mile ride in 24 hours in remembrance of the 43 North Carolinians who are MIA in Vietnam.
This was an Iron Butt ride, but all of the riders rode for the reason, not the patch. This Iron Butt ride was unique because (1) the entire route was within North Carolina to honor the North Carolina MIAs, and (2) we travelled country roads, highways (2 and 4 lanes), interstates, and through cities and towns.
The route made the 1,000 miles a tougher objective, but all riders completed the mission. During the ride, I earned the road name "IronMutt".
