Rolling Thunder motorcycle parade in Washington D.C.


More than a million veterans ride their motorcycles to Washington D.C. during the week before Memorial Day.  When they arrive, they ride down Constitution Avenue, where a lone Marine salutes them.  Sgt. Chambers has done this for many years, and might be doing it again this year.  I was once in D.C. on Memorial Day weekend and could hear the motorcycles from a distance.  I asked what the sound was, and it was explained to me.  It did sound a lot like rolling thunder.


More military items.

One Marine's story.

A Rosie-the-Riveter story.

More motorcycles.

Great ideas for travel adventures in California and the U.S. and around the world
