Assorted mottos were spotted on vest and jacket patches at the annual Rolling Thunder membership dinner Saturday, including, "If you can read this, thank a teacher. If you can read this in English, thank a vet."
There is no better name for an event that resonates with patriotism, deep loyalty, sacrifice, a sense of mission and authentic history: Rolling Thunder. Oh, yeah. Here they come. They're rolling, and it is thunderous.
Rolling Thunder made it to the White House this year, but the experience for the motorcycle-riding patriots was more pro forma photo oppportunity than heartfelt meeting with President Obama, the group says.
For many years following my USO tour, I was looking for some way to continue to help our troops and veterans, and I needed to share with someone the profound feelings I came away with after seeing war firsthand.
Inquiring minds want to know: When Rolling Thunder roars through the nation’s capital this weekend, will President Obama meet with the group’s founder and national executive director, Artie Muller, as former President George W. Bush did in years past?
Thousands of motorcyclists with the Rolling Thunder motorcycle group, including war veterans, rumbled into the District yesterday to deliver a request for President Bush to help missing service members and those struggling after returning from Afghanistan and Iraq.
For Verlin Mattox, merging with the sea of bikers who rolled into the capital yesterday as part of the annual "Rolling Thunder" rally was part of the healing process for a war he fought 30 years ago.
"It's about the veterans, the issues, and our country," said Artie Muller, a Vietnam War veteran and Rolling Thunder's national executive director. "It's about those soldiers who are in the hospital, and who have lost a leg or an arm. Somebody has to speak up for them. If we don't keep the pressure on, we will lose in the long run."
For all the smokin' hullabaloo, Mr. Muller says tomorrow's ride is also a political demonstration.
