About the Mission:
The Vietnam Veterans of America have once again asked Patriot Guard Riders to join them, along with various other Veteran Organizations and Motorcycle Clubs in escorting the very prestigious Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund "Wall That Heals" Moving Wall from the Fuller-Carrington American Legion in Groton New York, to the Leo A. Pickney Field at Falcon Park in Auburn NY, a distance of about 30 miles.
The Wall That Heals is a three-quarter scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial along with a mobile Education Center. Starting Thursday, September 14th, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and mobile Education Center will be available to the public 24 hours a day through 2:00pm on Sunday, September 17th.
This is an incredible honor to be a part in the movement of such an iconic symbol in remembrance of all our brave military men and women of the Vietnam War. Last time we escorted the Wall from Groton, there were over 150 bikes participating, it was an incredible sight to behold!

Updated 8 March 2022
Based on the most current COVID-19 Prevention Guidelines: Protect Yourself and Your Family from COVID-19, and CDC Guidelines of 3 March 2022, going forward, the Lead Ride Captain for any mission will be responsible for determining whether PGR members will have to mask up or not. Please ensure that you have a mask with you, should the need arise, and respect the LRC’s decision in these matters.
Please dress in your best appropriate attire and be ready for whatever weather mother nature throws at us. If flying a full size bike flag please make sure your mount is up to riding speeds. The staging time as of now is contingent upon the arrival of the escort vehicle so watch for possible changes in the the staging and departure times.
