Rolling Thunder 'Ride for Freedom' honors veterans in Washington, D.C.

WASHINGTON — The roar of motorcycle engines filled the air in the nation's capital on Sunday as thousands of bikers saluted military veterans with the Rolling Thunder "Ride for Freedom."

The bikers and spectators thronged to the Washington, D.C., area as they do each Memorial Day weekend for the annual ride. The event got its start in 1988 and it honors military veterans and members of the military missing in action.

Bikers rallied at the Pentagon all morning Sunday, then crossed the Memorial Bridge at midday before cruising around the National Mall.

Some of the bikers rode with large American flags trailing behind them. Marines in uniform and white gloves saluted as the bikers roared passed monuments such as the Lincoln Memorial.

Bikers also gathered elsewhere around the country.

Thanks to our friend Ernie (US Navy) and to all those who served.
