Thousands of bikers rolled into the District yesterday for the 17th annual Rolling Thunder Memorial Day motorcycle ride and rally to show support for the nation's war veterans, the troops currently overseas and American prisoners of war still missing in action from past conflicts.
"It is important for veterans from every war to know that there are people out here who care about the sacrifices they made and that what they do is important," said Matthew Whalen, 40, who was one of about 200,000 riders who made the trek downtown yesterday.
"I'm here to say, 'Thank you,' and give remembrance to veterans," said Mr. Whalen, whose father served in the Korean War.
