[ARCHIVED] Run for the Wall – May 22

Flag

The 28th Annual Run For The Wall will be held at the Longview Exhibit Building on Sunday, May 22, 2016, from 11:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. East Texans will have the opportunity to honor veterans and show support for soldiers during the Run for the Wall, Gregg County stopover. This event is dedicated to Prisoners of War (POWs) and those Missing in Action (MIA) and 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. The mission ride begins in Rancho Cucamonga, CA and culminates with participation in Rolling Thunder's "Ride for Freedom" on their way to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. Arrive early with your friends and family to honor these riders with your flags. Admission is free. For further information, please contact East TX Coordinator Cynthia Gurganus at 903-235-9079, via email cynthia.gurganus@yahoo.com.
