Tulsa boy gets a yellow ribbon for his dad fighting in Iraq

Updated:
A group of Harley riders shows its support for a young man who is worried about his dad serving in Iraq.

Ian McCall's grandparents wanted to do something to make things easier for the 8-year-old. So grandma and grandpa got a lot of their friends together. They hopped on their Harley's to deliver a yellow ribbon to Ian, which he'll tie around a tree until his dad gets home.

Ian McCall: "I said I wanted a ribbon to put on my tree to support my dad and the other troops.”

Harley rider, Jerry Branch: "He's old enough now that he's seeing all of the things that are happening on TV. And he's very worried and frightened and he misses his dad a lot. He and his dad are very close."

Ian's dad Tracey will likely be in Iraq for another six months.
