IMAGES: Veterans rumble through Louisville in annual Run for the Wall
The motorcyclists say they make the trip to honor those who can't make it.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Hundreds of motorcycles rumbled through Louisville for the annual Run for the Wall.
Veterans making their annual motorcycle ride across the country to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. stopped Wednesday morning at Louisville's VA Medical Center on Zorn Avenue.
Riders make the trip to recognize the sacrifice and contributions of veterans.
The goal of the ride includes promoting healing among all veterans and their families and calling for finding all those who are prisoners of war or missing in action.
Route coordinator Harlan Olson said it's an honor to take part.
"It's time for us to give back for those that can't make this ride, for physical reasons or whatever reasons that there might be. One of our mottos is, 'We ride for those that can't,'" he said.
The 10-day ride started in California last week and ends in the nation's capitol on Friday.
