Brothers and Sisters,
Below is the e-mail the Patriot Guard sent me and I thought some of you might be interested in doing this ride. The Vietnam Traveling Wall is having an Escorted Ride that all motorcyclists are invited to do.
Will J and I did this ride last year. It was a large ride and rewarding ride to participate in. I do not know if I will be home for the ride. If so I will let you know but you can plan on doing this on your own. You will not be sorry.
They will have shirts, pins and other accessories you can purchase if you want as well. The MRC is still planning the ride on Saturday, October 13, TO THE WALL IN MURRYSVILLE.
Again, I might not be available for this ride either. I MIGHT STILL be out of town on family issues.
If I’m not home for this ride, Will J will be in touch. The plan was to meet and ride to the wall and then to Dick’s Diner (not far from the park) for lunch and after that something you all can decide if you want to do a ride after or not.
I hope you can do this above ride and be part of the feeling of the Wall and what it means.
The Moving Wall
19 September 2018
The Patriot Guard Riders have been invited to Escort The Moving Wall, replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
The Moving Wall is a 1/2 size replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington DC which has been touring the country for thirty plus years.
When John Devitt attended the 1982 Dedication in Washington D.C., he felt the positive power of "The Wall" He vowed to share that experience with those who did not have the opportunity to go.
"The Wall" went on display for the first time in Tyler, Texas October 1984, and two structures of The Moving Wall now travel the USA from April through November "The Wall, To Honor and To Remember All Fallen Heroes lost and their sacrifices that were made during the Vietnam War.
