There is no better name for an event that resonates with patriotism, deep loyalty and an authentic sense of mission: Rolling Thunder. Oh, yeah. Here they come. Theyre rolling, and it is thunderous.
At least a half-million riders were expected for the 26th annual Ride for Freedom.
Everything about this rally still affects me, no matter how many years weve been doing it. And everything we do is meant to remember and honor our POWs, MIAs and all of our veterans, said former U.S. Army Sgt. Artie Muller, who founded the organization in 1987 and named it for a U.S. bombing campaign over North Vietnam more than two decades earlier.
I lost a whole lot of guys in that war. I never forget that I made it back but they didnt, he said. Just dont mention health care reform to Mr. Muller, though.
Dont get me started on Obamacare, he says. He is no fan of the incoming Affordable Care Act and is particularly piqued over backlogs on disability claims, military budget cuts and increases in prescription costs for veterans. They are scheduled to rise from $9 to $36, he said.
Why is that? Many vets cant even afford their medications now. Its a disgrace, Mr. Muller said.

I was at DC today. Great turnout.
Loved having Rolling Thunder in town again. Sorry it’s now a whole year away.
Our Vets are a strong antidote to “The Curse of Obamanation.”
