The riders in this year’s Run for the Wall will be stopping in Sallisaw at 10:15 a.m. May 22 for a break and to gas up their motorcycle.
Dennis Frye, participant in the Run for the Wall motorcycle ride, said the riders invite supporters to come visit at Ed’s Truck Stop.
“Tell people to come for a visit,” he said. “They like to wave at us and we like to wave back at them.”
The riders will be at the truck stop until about 11 a.m., Frye said.
The mission statement of Run for the Wall is “To promote healing among all veterans and their families and friends, to call for an accounting of all Prisoners of War and those Missing in Action (POW/MIA), to honor the memory of those Killed in Action (KIA) from all wars, and to support our military personnel all over the world.”
This year’s ride runs from May 18 to 27, and from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C.
