This year's Rolling Thunder Ride for Freedom will be held on Friday, May 25th thru Monday, May 28th, 2018 in Washington, District of Columbia.
Rolling Thunder was incorporated in 1995 as a non-profit organization with over 90 chapters in the United States. While a number of the Rolling Thunder members are veterans who ride motorcycles, it is not necessary in order to be a member. They are united in the cause of bringing accountability for the Prisoners-of-War and Missing In Action of all wars, living by the statement: "We Will Not Forget."
This Ride for Freedom is not a parade for motorcyclists, it is a demonstration to pay respect to those who gave their lives for our everyday freedom, and to publicize for the POW/MIA and Veteran's Rights. You do not have to be a member in order to ride, and you don't have to ride in order to attend - many people line the streets simply to watch the procession and pay respects to American heroes.
