Run for the Wall passes through two reservations

Navajo and Hopi veterans joined the 2006 Run for the Wall as the annual trip passed through the Navajo Reservation and the Hopi Reservation.

The Native veterans participated as part of the 4th Annual Hopi-Navajo Motorcycle Honor Run. Leaders of the Navajo Nation and the Hopi Tribe welcomed the bikers as they rode in honor of fallen soldiers.

The Run For the Wall continues to the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, DC, where the annual Rolling Thunder rally calls attention to prisoners of war and service people missing in action.
