Motorcycle riders from several states met in Barron last week for their annual event and ceremony to honor the 132 soldiers missing in action from Military Assistance Command, Vietnam Studies and Observations Group, or MACV-SOG. The special operations unit conducted unconventional warfare missions behind enemy lines. 

Special Operations Association Riders and members of the local community honored their memory Saturday, June 14, at Wayside Cemetery in Barron, by reading each of the 132 names and placing a carnation at a memorial wreath.

The Special Operations Association Riders group toured the area Wednesday through Sunday. Read the full story in the June 16 issue of the Barron News-Shield.
