Run For The Wall is a motorcycle ride which  takes place every year between the second Wednesday in May and Memorial Day.  The mission is to educate the public about Prisoners Of War and Missing In Action and to honor those Killed In Action while helping to bring healing to Vietnam veterans and their families.  The riders will be coming through Missouri on Monday and Tuesday.  They are scheduled to stop for fuel and food in Concordia on Monday at 12:15 p.m.  “Concordia really treats us nicely,”  explained Ingram.  “There are stops like this all across the United States.  It is quite an effort for a small town like Concodia  providing us with all the people donating their time and resources.”
