WILLIAMS – While the annual Run For The Wall was greeted with cold wind and rain last night, the sun shined on the group as they left this morning. Williams is the first stop on their annual trek to the Vietnam Memorial Wall. It seems as though Williams has thrown every weather condition imaginable at the group.
The American Legion hosted a dinner for their arrival and Wild West Junction provided a breakfast for their departure.
The Run For The Wall was started years ago as a healing ride for Vietnam Veterans. In recent years they have welcomed veterans from other conflicts and even civilians who support their mission. That mission is to bring awareness to the POWs and MIAs who have not returned from the conflicts that the United States has been involved in.
We would like to remind motorists to watch for the road guards for the Run For The Wall. Their job is to make sure these heroes arrive safe in Washington. Please be patient and follow their instructions. They will not take a big bite out of your day.
