With Memorial Day quickly approaching, the country turns its attention to honoring those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to preserve our liberty.  A special group of bikers stopped in Hurricane Wednesday night.

They are on their way Washington, D.C., where they will participate in a special Memorial Day ceremony, honoring those who have served.

It's all part of the "Run for the Wall," an annual motorcycle ride across the U.S. to honor those killed in action and support military personnel across the world.

The ride started in Los Angeles, CA.  The riders will join nearly 400,000 other bikers in Washington, D.C. on Sunday for a special ceremony honoring veterans.
