Choudrant residents gather on the I-20 overpass to cheer on participants in the Run For The Wall motorcyle trek that ends at the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D. C.

Every year on the Sunday of the week before Memorial Day, Shirley Soto and a group of her family members stand on the side of Interstate 20 and watch the motorcycles go by.

“It just makes my heart sing,” Soto, of Ruston, said.

The bikers, generally hundreds of them, are participants in the annual Run For The Wall ride to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. This year’s riders are expected to pass through Lincoln Parish shortly after 4 p.m. today.

The group will be traveling eastbound on Interstate 20.
