Rolling Thunder #3

Tomorrow is Memorial Day in the USA -- a time to honor our war dead.

 

In the last few years, "Rolling Thunder" has become a tradition in the Washington, DC area on the day before Memorial Day.

 

"Rolling Thunder" means that literally thousands of Vietnam veterans ride their Harley Davidsons to DC and parade through the streets, culminating at the Vietnam War Memorial. It's a testimony to patriotism and service, and raises issues at the heart of our nation today.

 

I went there today to take pictures.
