For me, this annual POW/MIA demonstration is all about doing what is right for the men and women who were sent to war and never came home and the families left behind. We owe nothing less than accountability and closure. I stumbled upon this amazing gathering of Rolling Thunder, Inc., by accident while stationed at the Pentagon. In 2001, I was a partner with the Korean War Commemoration Committee, and spent three days near the Korean War Veterans Memorial giving long-overdue appreciation and educating the public about it. Some call it the forgotten war, but I call it the forgotten victory. The following year, on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, I returned to the memorial sites in full dress and aimlessly walked around, thanking veterans for their service, families for their sacrifice, and thinking about how their heroic actions will fade as our veterans pass away.

This Marine is incredible. He stands and salutes for all of us and I’m proud to see him there
The greatest mistake a person can make, it to do nothing, because he thinks what he can do will not matter.
Do what you can, when you can.
Great job, Marine!
This marine is one if best and brightest.
Give me men to match my mountains
Well... Should be “is” instead of “it’.
It is a rip of a quote that I did not remember exactly.
It appears to be attributed to Sydney Smith, an English Clergyman.
It is the greatest of all mistakes to do nothing because you can only do little.
That picture is awesome.
Being the Mother of 2 Marines.
Semper Fi Marine!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have seen his picture before but I am embarrassed to say I never knew he saluted for the whole parade...
