WASHINGTON — About a half-million motorcycles are rolling through the nation’s capital.

WTOP-FM reports that motorcyclists have come from every state and as far away as Australia for Sunday’s 22nd annual Rolling Thunder Ride for Freedom in Washington.

National Executive Director Arty Muller says motorcyclists are uniting to push for full accountability for missing soldiers and prisoners of war.

Rolling Thunder participants also are calling for better health care for recently returned troops.

The motorcyclists, many of them veterans, departed from the Pentagon and will finish their ride near the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.



Several streets are closed for the event.
