  • Motorcyclists Make Ride to Vietnam Memorial

    May 15, 2009

    While we stumbled out of bed this morning and fumbled with the coffee pot, motorcyclists on the other side of the country said a prayer for the fallen and set their sights east. The Run for the Wall began today and will continue for 11 days. Part of their journey will bring them through Alabama on May 19. For the 21st year, veterans, servicemembers and supporters are departing Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., where they have gathered for the last several days. They will ride cross country to the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D.C. The event is not only to recognize and remember the sacrifices of fallen veterans, but also a journey of healing for those who make the trip.
