The History

June 5, 2011 kicked off the 1st Annual Memorial Motorcycle in memory of USMC PFC Eric Currier, an annual event organized by his family and friends. The first run welcomed an impressive 700+ riders and addition to that a great number of supporters who joined in after the ride.

Each year, the event raises money and donates to organizations directly related to supporting the memory of our troops who have served, in Eric’s name, as an ongoing tribute of who Eric was and what he believed in.

Who is PFC Eric Currier?

Eric was the proud son of Russell Currier, Jr. and Helen Boudreau of Londonerry NH. As an avid sportsman; he loved hunting, archery and fishing out of Newburyport, MA. He loved spending his time outdoors snowboarding, wake boarding or water skiing. Eric was a mentor and best friend to all. He was loved by all he met, and was known for wearing his heart on his sleeve.

Helping people was second nature for Eric. After seeing what happened on September 11, 2001, he said he was compelled to do something, so in 2009, Eric joined the Marines. An accomplished and proud member of the Corps, he earned the High Shooter award for his platoon.

On February 17, 2010, Eric was killed in action supporting combat operations in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, participating in Operation Enduring Freedom.

Eric is survived by his parents, siblings, and grandparents.
