For those that might not know, Rolling Thunder is a Memorial Day demonstration to remember those that died in service to the the US. But also to remember those that have not returned home (POW/MIA's). Branching out to recognize that that have come home, but are forgotten in the benefits for their wounds in serving their country. (http://www.rollingthunder1.org/)

My thoughts on this gallery is for past or present images from Rolling Thunder. This being an emotional event, I encourage (as long as the Mods allow :) ) for individual posts, sharing your feelings - whether you were a participant or a viewer of this gallery. Also post any pics you have from any of the 19 Rolling Thunders.

I hate to admit that I was a passive viewer of Rolling Thunder till 2002, a year after 9-11.

The first image I will share from this year, is one that remembers the feelings that we have since 9-11.

Really nice, Chip.

This made me realize that I ned to keep an eye on calendar of events more and get out to some of these things, since we live in such an active area.

Thanks Gary. Just a heads up, 11/11/2006 will see a demonstration of Vets demanding better benefits for our returning wounded from Iraq and Afghanistan.
