The roar of motorcycles was loud Thursday evening as riders from American Legion, Kansas Patriot Guard and other riders escorted the Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall from Fort Scott to Paola.
The riders met the traveling wall at Velocity Tactics on Wall Street, before getting on Highway 69 towards its destination in Paola. A State Highway Patrol officer was also part of the escort while local law enforcement controlled traffic.
The wall will remain at 5 Delaware Street, Paola, July 14-16, with the wall accessible to visitors 24 hours daily. A ceremony will be held Saturday morning along with other performances and presentations throughout the weekend.
