Rolling Thunder

This is lifted from another site. It belongs here too.

Rolling Thunder 2010


Maybe this is/was posted elsewhere but I feel it deserves it's own thread.

If this doesn't choke you up......

"I cannot imagine holding a salute for three hours. Check out the link below."

"...3000 vets on motorcycles from across the USA paraded in D.C. The Sunday before Memorial Day, while a solitary, saluting Marine greeted them out on Constitution Avenue... The Marine stood at salute for 3 straight hours, while the parade of roaring bikes kept on coming.... It is held in remembrance of those who've fallen in the military.... The event (or the group) is called Rolling Thunder... George Bush used to meet these bikers before they paraded... The camera is on the Marine a lot... Watch his struggles with his emotions, and his struggles with holding that salute... The way he salutes is very touching... His head lowered, his eyes down, in reverence for the fallen...It got to be overwhelming for him... And the tears started flowing... Watch what he says when he finally breaks, but keeps right on holding that salute..."

I use and talk about, but don't sell Amsoil.

My brother in law went to Rolling Thunder, he wanted me to go too, but I felt I wasn't ready for that.
