TOLLESON -- Dozens of Arizona motorcyclists -- combat veterans -- are firing up their bikes and choppers to Run for the Wall. They're joining hundreds of others in a ride to The Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Bruce Haffner talked to two of the vets about the event, the motto of which is "We ride for those who can't."

According to the Run for the Wall website, the group's mission is "to promote healing among ALL veterans and their families and friends, to call for an accounting of all Prisoners of War and those Missing in Action (POW/MIA), to honor the memory of those Killed in Action (KIA) from all wars, and to support our military personnel all over the world."

The run started in California yesterday and ends in D.C. on May 30.
