Vietnam War veteran goes for his final motorcycle ride…
A hospice of the Valley social worker arranged for retired police officer and Vietnam War Veteran Kenneth Jones to take his last motorcycle ride. Jones suffered a series of strokes and is currently receiving compassionate end-of-life care from Hospice of the Valley at the Arizona State Veteran Home in Phoenix.
Awesome job by all. I guarantee that this ride meant the world to this vet. Thank you for your service, Mr. Kenneth Jones.

Thanks to a Hospice of the Valley Social Worker a local veteran took his last motorcycle ride.
Vietnam War veteran and retired police officer, Kenneth Jones, 71, took his last motorcycle ride Monday morning. Jones suffered a series of strokes and is receiving end-of-life care from Hospice of the Valley at Arizona State.
McKella Williams, Jones’ caretaker, came up with the idea after learning of his love for motorcycles and worked to make it happen.
Retired Mesa Police officer John Duhigg drove the motorcycle with Jones in a side car and Patriot Guide Riders rode along side the two.
The 17 mile ride started and ended at the Arizona State Veteran Home. More
Now THIS is what #Thanksgiving is all about…
How awesome is this? A Vietnam war vet takes a last ride on a motorcycle. What an amazing gift to give! Thank you Patriot Guard Riders, Hospice of the Valley and American Legion Riders!https://t.co/aDyGwXREqW

This is the kind of story I like to see on the news. Great people with huge hearts doing something kind for someone that they don’t know. God bless these bikers.
Even though these things are part of life, it’s still hard to take without shedding a few tears. It makes me wonder what’s going through his mind knowing he is going to die and never get to do that again. Does it affect everyone the same?
God bless and thank you to those who made this happen. Need more things like this in this world.
