A crowd of people, many of them veterans, gather to form a motorcade for the memorial wall. They are preparing to ride up to Fairbault where it will be displayed.
Clad in leather and denim as the sun beat down on them, the crowd gathered at the Steele County Fairgrounds didn’t pay any mind to the heat. They had a more important task at hand. There were fallen brothers and sisters that needed to be honored, and for the next few days, that was their job. The...
