RAINELLE - Organizers in Rainelle are preparing for several events for the West Virginia Veterans' Reunion.

About 400 veteran motorcyclists will drive through Route 60 to Rainelle Elementary School around 12:15 Thursday to reunite with students and community members for the annual Run for the Wall. Organizers said the purpose is to inform folks there are still POW's and MIA's unaccounted for.

Organizers in Rainelle are also preparing for a moving expo to be displayed Thursday as part of the West Virginia Veterans' Reunion.

Bringing Home the Wall is a traveling replica of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, DC. Also on exhibit will be the Quilt of Tears, a display of 26 handmade quilts in honor of Agent Orange victims.

The exhibition will run from 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. from Thursday through Sunday. It will also be display for part of the day on Monday.
