Skye, our eyes on the scene in Washington, D.C. this Memorial Day weekend, has a front row seat to witness the 20th Anniversary of "Rolling Thunder." This is the group composed of veterans, current military and American Patriots who organized initially to inform the Nation on the problem of troops from the Vietnam war who were unaccounted Prisoner's of War and Missing in Action.
If you have ever lived in the Nation's Capital you know when Rolling Thunder is in town. The sounds of motorcycles fill the air as hundreds of motorcycles cross Memorial Bridge which leads from Arlington National Cemetery to the Lincoln Memorial. Over the years many high profile riders like General Richard B. Meyers Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon have led the ride. Riders have also been welcomed at the Bush White House in support of their mission.
The Patriots of Rolling Thunder have extended their mission to include support for our troops on the battlefields in this REAL Global War on Terror.
Skye is continuing to post cell phone photos from the event at Midnight Blue from her perch in the Eagle's Nest and has already uploaded two videos from yesterdays Gathering of Eagles which you can view here.
Thus far she's described to me by phone a patriotic outpouring of people from all walks of life, many from foreign lands who join with the United States and our goals for a world of peace with freedom and justice.
We're all looking forward to her fuller report with digital photos.
