A mile of motorcycles escort ‘The Wall’ to Newton
Citizens set up picnics, pulled over in their cars, decorated their yards and lined the streets and highways Wednesday evening to honor servicemen and women who fell in Vietnam.
“The Wall That Heals” was being escorted back to Newton for its second trip and the welcome back party could not have been more perfect.
The Wall itself is a 250-foot long miniature version of the Vietnam War Memorial and made a grand entrance from Colfax through former U.S. Highway 6 all the way to Maytag Park in Newton. The wall was escorted by representatives of every law enforcement agency in the county, all of the fire departments and what the Jasper County Sheriff’s Department described as a “one mile long” motorcycle escort.
