BILLINGS — Motorcycle riders showed their appreciation for military service by helping pass out meat to veterans at Beartooth Harley Davidson on Saturday.

It's all part of helping out Montana Veterans Meat Locker.

Ranchers and hunters donate meat and the Meat Locker finds a processor.

The veterans receive about a month's worth of meat.

Helping veterans is part of the mission of the the R.O.A.D. R.A.S.H. motorcycle club.

"I've never served," said Tom "Wolf" Maerling, R.O.A.D. R.A.S.H. acting president. "Some of my brothers have served and this is my way of trying to help serve those who have served. There's still a lot of support in the community for veterans. We do what we can to help them survive and make life easier for them."

R.O.A.D. R.A.S.H. stands for "Riders Of American Defenders Riding Against Soldier Hatred."

The club also has helped deliver the meat.

R.O.A.D. R.A.S.H. helps and is not part of the Montana Veterans Meat Locker.

The riders also competed in Beartooth Harley's Munchie Bowl XI and took first place for best booth.
