The Rolling Thunder motorcycle club participated in the annual Ride for Freedom though Washington, D.C., on May 28.
The group, comprised mostly of veterans, began their annual ride during Memorial Day weekend in 1988. Rolling Thunder's aim is to bring awareness to POW/MIA soldiers. The route goes from the Pentagon to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
