Lester Wall proudly served his country in the Korean War and spent 33 months in a North Korean prisoner-of-war camp. At 17, he was the youngest POW in the Korean War, and at 81, he was the oldest AMVETS Rider in Missouri. Lester had a zest for life and a passion for riding motorcycles. He rode his Harley and Victory trike up until his death. He embodied LRB, and his service and sacrifice will never be forgotten.
The AMVETS Riders would like to honor all those faithful Riders who have passed from this life to the next. Their voices and the the roar of their motorcycles have been stilled, but their names and faces are indelibly etched in our hearts and minds. Their passing has left a void that will never be filled, but we are grateful to have had the opportunity to serve and ride alongside them. We were blessed to know them, and we pray that God will bless us to be reunited when it is our time to take the final ride. Now as they ride forever free across the heavens, these AMVETS Riders are part of an eternal fellowship,
