Veterans in Defense of Liberty®/ Liberty Riders of America™ is hosting the Second Annual Missouri Vietnam Wall Run 2020™ as a two day event on Friday and Saturday, September 18 and 19 to honor POW-MIA’s that are still unaccounted for and to honor Vietnam Veterans and in honor of National POW/MIA Recognition Day.
It was during the 2019 Wall Run that Governor Mike Parsons presented a proclamation recognizing the Vietnam Wall Run as the Official Missouri Ride for Remembrance. The statewide motorcycle run will ride to veterans’ events and the Veterans’ Memorial in Perryville (with a replica of the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington D.C.) and will be followed by a ceremony with two Medal of Honor recipients as guest speakers.
A Veterans’ Honor Bus will drive from Springfield to Perryville on Saturday with veterans who would like to participate in this event, but would like a ride. There are seats still available and there’s no charge! To reserve a seat for a veteran and their guest, call 417-230-7831.
