Rolling Thunder

Recommended Posts

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...but keeps right on holding that salute...

Want to get tearie eyed....got to your nearest Veterans Center/Nursing Home and visit some of the residents....spend an hour or so with them and if you leave without shedding a tear...you have no heart....
