Rain pounded the pavement during much of the 30th anniversary Rolling Thunder run on Sunday, May 28, 2017, but it didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of the riders or spectators. Crowds along the streets loudly cheered the Vietnam veterans who came to ride, and many quietly gathered at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial to honor those who never came home.

In a welcome letter for the 2018 Rolling Thunder event, Laura Sides, chairman of the board of Rolling Thunder Washington, D.C. Inc. said, “I have witnessed the dedication and commitment of the Vietnam veterans who are ensuring that no one is forgotten. Because of them, I have a deeper appreciation for the sacrifices made by the men and women who defend our freedom. It is with complete humility and enormous respect for our veterans, current members of the military and first responders that I say, ‘Thank you. Happy Memorial Day and welcome to Rolling Thunder.'”
