WYNNE, AR--Honoring a hero....8 months ago the town of Wynne lost one of their own in Iraq. Today motorcycle enthuasiasts, family and friends of U.S. Marine Lance Corporal Brian C. Hopper joined together for the first ever motorcyle run to honor the late marine.
Hopper was slated to come back home before going on one more mission in Fallujah when he died in a helicopter crash in western Iraq on January 26th of this year. Over 200 motorcyclists and riders came out to honor a fallen hero and to show supports for branches of the military both past and present.
