Rolling Thunder Bikers Arrive In the DMV for Memorial Day Weekend

Thousands will converge at the official Rolling Thunder Reunion Site and Dealership located at 9407 Livingston Road, Fort Washington, MD, to celebrate this significant milestone. Lieutenant James Downing (104 years old), the second oldest living survivor of the Pearl Harbor attack, will be speaking. The bikers’ arrival will be announced by the roar of their motorcycles, a sound not unlike the 1965 bombing campaign against North Vietnam dubbed Operation Rolling Thunder®. Their message is to remember the past, while protecting future Veterans should they become a Prisoner of War-Missing in Action.
