Bikers pay tribute to military veterans in the annual Run for the Wall
Each year, during the final week of May, people in Knoxville, Tenn., come out in droves. American flags are placed along the road to welcome visitors who will only stay for a short while, but who make a roaring impression. The Run for the Wall motorcycle rally to the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, D.C., is on its way to honor U.S. veterans on Memorial Day.
“It’s phenomenal,” says Randy Smith, general manager of TA Knoxville West, where the group has stopped for fuel for the past nine years. “Everybody is out here waving flags in support. It’s a great day.”
This year about 900 bikers gassed up in just 45 minutes, then hit the road again, to much cheering along the way. In Washington, they joined hundreds of thousands of other bikers honoring vets in the annual Rolling Thunder parade.
