The Rolling to Remember event is a tradition in D.C. where thousands of bikers converge to honor those who have sacrificed for our freedom. This event almost didn’t happen this year because the group was denied a permit in D.C. for a staging area at the Pentagon (see below).
The national executive director of AMVETS says turnout should be even greater after the group was finally given a permit in D.C. for the staging area:
“The biggest disappointment in the Pentagon’s denial was that AMVETS was ignored for months as its professional staff in Washington requested numerous times an opportunity to hear the Defense Department’s concerns and present a safety plan.” – Jan Brown, the national commander of AMVETS.
There will be a sea of about 100K motorcycles for the Rolling to Remember event, formerly Rolling Thunder. In Washington, D.C., the event raises awareness for 80,000+ unaccounted for POW/MIAs and the national veteran suicide crisis.
