Sunday morning was bright and beautiful as several thousand motorcyclists roared out of the parking lots at the National Museum of the Marine Corps and Quantico Harley-Davidson and headed north toward Washington, D.C., to participate in the 27th annual Rolling Thunder. Rolling Thunder is an annual motorcycle rally that held during the Memorial Day weekend to call for the government's recognition and protection of Prisoners of War and those Missing in Action. The tribute to American war heroes started in 1988 with 2,500 participants. Now approximately 900,000 participants and spectators are involved with this annual demonstration along the National Mall. - Sunday morning was bright and beautiful as several thousand motorcyclists roared out of the parking lots at the National Museum of the Marine Corps and Quantico Harley-Davidson and headed north toward Washington, D.C., to participate in the 27th annual Rolling Thunder.
