A few years ago, Tony Mendoza saw a fellow motorcyclist wearing a jacket that caught his attention. The back had a reference to ‘Run for the Wall,’ something Mendoza had never heard of. “I went up to him and asked him what it was all about and he gave me a brief description,” said the 62-year-old Mendoza. “It really intrigued me so I went and looked it up and gathered more information… I’ve been participating in it ever since.”
According to the Run for the Wall website, the main purpose of the event is to promote healing among all veterans and their families and friends as well as to call for an accounting of all prisoners of war and those missing in action (POW/MIA) and to honor the memory of those killed in action (KIA) from all wars, and to support our military personnel all over the world.
