"Run For The Wall" Makes Way Through West Virginia
Rolling Thunder echoed throughout the Kanawha Valley today and down the West Virginia Turnpike as motorcyclists made their way to the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D.C. for the Memorial Day weekend.

The Run For the Wall, first started in 1989, brings veterans of all ages and from all conflicts involving US Armed Forces together on their journey across the country toward the nation's Capital. Friends, family and fellow riders work together on their stated mission to "promote healing among all veterans and their families and friends, to call for an accounting of all Prisoners of War and those Missing in Action (POW/MIA), to honor the memory of those Killed in Action (KIA) from all wars and to support our military personnel all over the world."

The procession stopped at the West Virginia Veterans Memorial for a ceremony honoring and remembering West Virginians who paid the ultimate price in defense of freedom. Afterward, the Run for the Wall continues on through Rainelle, WV and Lewisburg, WV prior to arriving in Washington, D.C. for weekend festivities.
