The Story: Spirits run high in the Pentagon parking lot on Memorial Day. Tens of thousands of motorcycles parade through the streets of DC, spectators cheering the entire way. By the time we arrived at the wall, the mood, magnified by the rain, had become somber. You could see it in the way people walked, the way they talked, in their faces and in their every gesture.
