A motorcycle escort will accompany the Dignity Memorial Vietnam Wall replica on its journey to Tahlequah on Tuesday.

The escort will travel down U.S. 69 to U.S. 62 and east through Muskogee. It will reach Tahlequah about noon, according to a media release.

Pastor Garland Thomas of New Life Worship Center said in the release that anyone who wishes may participate.

“We’ll have veterans, patriot guards and biker ministries riding, but anyone who wants can join,” Thomas said.

Riders will meet at the Big Chief Truck Stop at Big Cabin on U.S. 69 at 9 a.m., Thomas said. The wall and its escort will depart Big Cabin at 10 a.m., and are expected to arrive in Tahlequah around noon.

Those interested in being part of the escort may join in at any point along the route.

The Dignity Memorial Vietnam Wall will be in Tahlequah April 17 to 20 at Sequoyah High School Tommy Thompson Field. The monument is a traveling replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. It will be open 24 hours per day for visitors.
