ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Over 400 motorcycles will start the morning at the VFW Hall in Wentzville, and then stop for a ceremony at the nation's first Vietnam Memorial there on Run for the Wall.

Then, at about 8:45, Florissant Native Dennis Kluge says they'll begin making their way to Jefferson Barracks on 64/40, 270 and 255.

"The drivers need to be patient and know it’s only going to inconvenience them for a bit, and them rushing or cutting through the bike lane is danger waiting to happen,” he says.  

After visiting with veterans at the Jefferson Barracks VA Hospital for about an hour, the bikes will head east on 255 and 64 resuming their trip to Washington D.C.
