Run For The Wall XXIV

May 20, 2012

4:00 PM

Veterans from all wars and their supporters will leave from Rancho Cucamonga, CA on their annual pilgrimage across the heartland of America to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial - "The Wall" - in Washington D.C. They will honor Junction City with their stop here on May 20th. Their mission is to create a groundswell of support for American POW/MIA's from all wars, and to honor the memory of those "Killed In Action" and to help those injured by war to heal. Please join us in making this a memorable and honorable stopover. This 10-day, cross-country journey will include ceremonies with veterans and organizations, visits to war memorials, visits to VA hospital patients, and other stops to make sure our POW/MIA's are not forgotten. Everyone is asked to line up on S. Washington St., beginning at 4:00 p.m., and participate in the "flag line" to welcome these veterans to our community. Bring your flags to wave as they pass by on their way to Heritage Park at 6th & Washington St., where a ceremony will take place following their arrival. This event is Free and open to the public.
