Thousands of motorcyclists from across the nation have flooded Washington, D.C., Sunday for the annual Memorial Day weekend tradition Rolling Thunder.
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the demonstration meant “to educate, facilitate, and never forget … service members that were abandoned after the Vietnam War” — a yearly display of patriotism, freedom, and respect for the men and woman who defend our country.
