Virginia Beach, Va. - Thirty-one heroes will be remembered tomorrow in Virginia Beach. 

Nearly two years the Chinook helicopter they were riding in was shot down by enemy fire in Afghanistan.

Thirty were active duty military, many local Navy SEALs and support, and one military working dog.

Tomorrow, friends and family will honor them with a memorial motorcycle ride that will begin at Smoked Out restaurant and end at the Virginia Beach Sportsplex.

All proceeds will benefit 31 heroes and Snowball Express organizations that are taking care of those left behind.
