With the theme of “Welcome Home,” the annual Texas Vietnam Veterans Memorial Highway Motorcycle Run started at the Texas-Oklahoma line north of Perryton and continued down Highway 83 to Brownsville for closing ceremonies at Veterans Park. The Opening Ceremony of the run was held at the Ochiltree County Courthouse on Sunday, March 8. Pictured are, from left, master of ceremony Darrell Hickey, Larrey Lewis and Don Rickes of Texas For You, who presented the program, and Gene Smith, who offered the benediction.
