Run For The Wall XXII 2010: Day 10 & Beyond – Lewisburg, WV to Washington, D.C.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!

We awoke in Lewisburg, West Virginia to no rain, albeit a bit foggy.  Yesterday’s daily activities officially ended in Rainelle, West Virginia after our ceremonies and presentation with the school children at Rainelle Elementary School.  However, we did continue our Missing Man formation from Rainelle to Lewisburg, which is where we begin on Friday mornings.  The reason we start out in Lewisburg on Friday mornings is due to the number of hotel rooms the Run requires for an overnight stay.

When we arrived at our lunch stop, we learned that we did not have any police escort into Washington, D.C.  Nevertheless, we managed to lead the pack to our host hotel without incident.  Upon arrival at the host hotel, we were greeted by the Southern Route and “Welcomed Home”!

Saturday involved many activities including Run For The Wall laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns, our group photo on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, our Run For The Wall presentation at the apex of the Vietnam Memorial Wall and our closing dinner and ceremony at the Arlington Assembly of God.

On Sunday morning, Run For The Wall participated in Rolling Thunder XXIII.

Once again, many thanks to all of you countless volunteers at stops throughout the country who have helped us once again in our 22nd Annual Run For The Wall to accomplish our mission!!!
