GIBSON CO., Ind. (WFIE) - The Indiana State Police shut down parts of US 41 on Tuesday for the “Run For the Wall” motorcycle trip.
Hundreds of motorcyclists stopped at the Flying J Travel Center in Gibson County on their way to the nation’s capitol.
The motorcycle group is traveling to Washington D-C to visit the Vietnam Veterans memorial.
An ambassador, Sonia Ammann says over 200 people are riding to honor fallen veterans.
”There’s so many who sacrificed their lives so we can be free and there’s a lot who never made it home,” says Ammann. “So, we want to make sure we’re thanking those who was killed in action, and we remember those who didn’t make it home.”
The group is scheduled to arrive in Washington D.C. on May 27.
