Local bikers escort 'The Moving Wall'

“The Moving Wall,” a half-size replica of the Washington, D.C., Vietnam Veterans Memorial, came to Oswego from June 29-July 3. This “Moving Wall” was created in 1982 by a group of Vietnam veterans in California. The Wall stands six feet at the center and tapers to four-foot-high panels at each end. It stretches 252 feet. Listed on the wall are the names of 58,228 soldiers who lost their lives in the Vietnam War. Bikers (many of whom served in the Vietnam War) from Plano, Sandwich, and the surrounding area met at G-Force in Plano and rode in procession to Oswego to join with hundreds of bikers in the escort of the Wall to Prairie Point Park in Oswego. Pictured are several area bikers representing Open Roads ABATE of IL Inc. and American Legion Riders Post 181 from Sandwich.
