(KSL News) A group of Utahns rode their motorcycles to honor a soldier killed in Iraq.

Memorial Motorcycle Ride to Honor Fallen Soldiers

Sgt. Brandon Thomas was killed by a car bomb, in Baghdad, two years ago. Thomas was working as a contractor at the time, protecting retired military generals.

He grew up around motorcycles and rode with his parent since he was two. Steven Thomas, Brandon's father, was moved by the generosity of those who participated. "It means an awful lot to me. It means that people out there really care about our soldiers and what they're doing and the prices paying for defending our freedom."
