MILFORD - ? Dozens of bikers took part in a ride to commemorate a fallen U.S. Marine during the second annual Jordan?s Ride Home Poker Run in Milford.

The ride was organized to raise money in memory of Cpl. Jordan Pierson, who was killed in Iraq. The bikers rode on despite Sunday?s dreary weather. Friends say Pierson loved the freedom of riding motorcycles and loved fighting for freedom.

Last year, 100 bikers took part in the ride to raise thousands of dollars for the Marines.
