The run for the wall every year around memorial day honors U.S. veterans by riding from California to Washington, D.C. Although the ride didn’t happen due to COVID-19, bikers still wanted to do something to honor our military men and women, “It’s important for us to still continue the mission, but this year currently just trying to do it as safely as we can with a small number of people and unofficially from Run For the Wall traveling under the banner of flags of honor,” said rider, Mary Pittman
After leaving Meridian, the group will continue their trip to the Vietnam Memorial in Washington to place flags.
