The Wall That Heals, a mobile replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington D.C., arrived in La Pine Tuesday as part of a nationwide tour.

Visitors are able to view names of specific service members, learn facts about them, and do rubbings of individual names, but some local motorcyclists did even more to show respect.

Richard Kruger was one of about 50 riders who followed behind The Wall That Heals trailer to its temporary spot at the Frontier Days Fairground.

“It’s not only for La Pine it’s for the whole state,” Kruger said. “And it’s for a whole generation.”
