Rolling Thunder - Memorial Day

My brother LOVES his bike. I don't mean mountain bike - I mean motorcycle. He has been known to ride in events like the Toys for Tots in Philadelphia - where thousands of men and women on motorcycles ride into the city to deliver toys for the kids. I think that is so awesome to be a part of a group making a statement for the good in this world and helping others.

Here is a link he sent me about the Rolling Thunder group that rides to Washington DC every Memorial Day to honor those who have fallen, sacrificed, and serve our country. It's only 2 1/2 minutes long, yet powerful. THANK YOU to all who serve and sacrifice! May God bless you and your families!

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....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...
