MOUNT STERLING, Ky. (LEX 18)– Hundreds of motorcyclists are making the journey across the nation to honor the brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice, and for those were never recovered.

Flags waved proudly at Mount Sterling’s Clay Community Center Wednesday as people celebrated the nearly 500 men and women who are making the trip, starting in California and ending at Washington D.C.’s Vietnam Memorial.

At the community center, riders were given a free meal and a stop to fuel up.

“We get to see a part of America that most of America doesn’t even think exists anymore,” said David “Bounce” Talley, a rider in the Run For the Wall.

“We want to get to Washington D.C. as safe as we can, but we want to make people aware that there are still POWs and MIAs out there, some of the POWs are now probably MIA but we want them home we want them back,” said Talley.
