Run For The Wall – Bikers Pay Respect to Those Killed in Combat (PHOTOS)

Once again, bikers from all over the country revved their motorcycles and made their way to the capital this Memorial Day weekend to pay respect to those who got killed in combat defending the country.

Run For The Wall is an annual cross-country motorcycle ride through three routes from California to Washington D.C. It started in 1989, and it promotes healing among veterans and their families, as well as honoring the memory of those who lost their lives fighting for freedom.

“It’s a healing mission. Me being a Vietnam-era vet losing two close friends, it gives me closure,” RFTW participant Randy Decastro, of Ogallala, Nebraska, said for WTOP.

Parts of the National Mall were covered with a sea of motorcycles as thousands of bikers gathered in front of the Lincoln Memorial on Saturday.
