PRLog - Jun. 25, 2012 - As America enters its 11th year of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, showing support for our returning wounded service members is more important than ever. Attendees of the event can show their support by participating in the motorcycle dice run sponsored by BROTHERS IN ARMS MOTORCYCLE CLUB or attend the Outdoor Music Festival featuring 5 local bands. There will also be a silent auction at the event from 5-7pm featuring autographed items from the Seattle Sounders, Led Zeppelin, Alice in Chains and more.

The music lineup includes Sweetkiss Momma, Jason Kertson & The Immortals, Ayron Jones & The Way, Big Wheel Stunt Show and Klover Jane.

All funds raised from motorcycle run, silent auction and individual donations will go directly to Operation Ward 57 to support the wounded service members recovering from their injuries at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, MD. Operation Ward 57 T-shirts that are given to patients and families will also be available for sale at the Rock & Rally event.

The event sponsors Brothers In Arms MC and Rock the Dock Owner Gwendolyn Stence were inspired by Operation Ward 57, and were motivated to find a way to make an impact on and improve the overall quality of life of the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines that have sacrificed so much in support of OIF/OEF/OND.

About Operation Ward 57: Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC) in Bethesda, MD is the first stop for many
of America's returning wounded service members from Iraq and Afghanistan. Known as "the amputee ward", historically, the
orthopedic Ward 57 at WRAMC, now 4E at WRNMMC, houses patients for weeks or even months and the painful sacrifice of losing one or more limbs is the new battle these heroes and their families now fight. Operation Ward 57 was founded in 2007.
