Rolling Thunder, a biker rally in Washington, D.C. created during the Vietnam War to honor American veterans, comes to the Capitol during Memorial Day weekend during the VA health scandal in which the government has been falsifying information about their ability to help America's veterans.
The rally is held every year during Memorial Day, and they expect over 500,000 motorcyclists to participate this year.
As WTOP reported:
This weekend, the VA scandal, which erupted in April when it was reported that 40 veterans may have died waiting for care in Phoenix, AZ., is on a lot of veterans' minds.
"Were all willing to give our life, but then they treat you like garbage when you come back," one veteran tells WTOP. "You know there's always money for the war."
The Rolling Thunder rally is really a sight to behold if you are in Washington over Memorial Day weekend. This year, as the government fails our veterans, it might be more important than ever.
Treated like sh!t when we got home ... nothing has changed.
I’m proud to report that nearly 400 bikes of Run To The Wall were served a great lunch of hamburgers, hot dogs and all the extras at the Hopewell Moose Lodge in Hopewell, VA on Thursday. I worked in the kitchen helping to prepare the food and didn’t finish until mid-afternoon when the dishes were washed and put away. We had a large group of active service men and women from Fort Lee and there were great comments and words of thanks shared with all. This was the mid-America group that starts in California and came across to Raleigh, NC and then up to our location. We had a large turn out from local fire personnel and police as well.
