Escorted The Moving Wall into town yesterday. Over one hundred twenty bikers met The truck at a rest stop on I-15 about forty miles from Pocatello, and then, led by a group of six Viet Nam Veterans, representing various motorcycle groups ; HOG, Legacy Vets, American Legion Riders, POW*MIA riders and the CMA, Viet Nam Vets MC, we rode together through Blackfoot, Ft. Hall, and into Pocatello. We are assembling the wall this afternoon and then the replica of the Viet Nam Memorial will be on display through the weekend during the POW*MIA Awareness Rally and Bike Rodeo this weekend. For me, as a Viet Nam Vet myself, this was a moving experience and ev en inspired a poem Escorting The Wall which is posted on Songs of the Open Road. I'll keep you posted on the Rally and related events.
Keep on keepin' On
