Veterans from all wars and their supporters will leave from Rancho Cucamonga, CA on their annual pilgrimage across the Heartland of America to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial - "The Wall" - in Washington D.C. They will honor Junction City with their overnight stop here. Their mission is to create a groundswell of support for American POW/MIA's from all wars, and to honor the memory of those "Killed In Action" and to help those injured by war to heal. Please join us in making this a memorable and honorable stopover. This 10-day, cross- country journey will include ceremonies with veterans and organizations, visits to war memorials, visits to VA hospital patients, and other stops to make sure our POW/MIA's are not forgotten. Everyone is asked to line up on Washington St. and participate in the "flag line" to welcome these veterans to our community. There will be a ceremony in Heritage Park upon their arrival. On Monday morning they will be served breakfast before continuing on with their journey to the "Rolling Thunder" event in Washington D.C. Run For The Wall recognizes the sacrifices and contributions made by all veterans who have served our nation. Veterans of recent conflicts and those currently on active duty are especially welcome to join us as "we ride for those who cannot." A Memorial Service will be held at approximately 6:15 PM.
