There is no better name for an event that resonates with patriotism, deep loyalty and an authentic sense of mission: Rolling Thunder. Oh, yeah. Here they come. Theyre rolling, and it is thunderous.
At least a half-million riders were expected for the 26th annual Ride for Freedom.
Everything about this rally still affects me, no matter how many years weve been doing it. And everything we do is meant to remember and honor our POWs, MIAs and all of our veterans, said former U.S. Army Sgt. Artie Muller, who founded the organization in 1987 and named it for a U.S. bombing campaign over North Vietnam more than two decades earlier.
I lost a whole lot of guys in that war. I never forget that I made it back but they didnt, he said. Just dont mention health care reform to Mr. Muller, though.
Dont get me started on Obamacare, he says. He is no fan of the incoming Affordable Care Act and is particularly piqued over backlogs on disability claims, military budget cuts and increases in prescription costs for veterans. They are scheduled to rise from $9 to $36, he said.
Why is that? Many vets cant even afford their medications now. Its a disgrace, Mr. Muller said.

Rest easy, sleep well my brothers. Know the line has held, your job is done. Rest easy, sleep well. Others have taken up where you fell, the line has held. Peace, peace, and farewell...”Christmas poem at Arlington National Cemetery
For some, honor has been earned.
I watched the beginning of the program on PBS and I am compelled to say.........Colin Powell,. STFU you disgusting pr*ck!
That is all......
GOD bless and protect our men and women in harms way.and God DAMN the likes of Powell and his ilk!
God Bless our vets.
The best of our nation.
Thank you each and every one.
God bless the USA!
I’d like to DITTO what you said. Well said.
Is my eyes wrong, but does that look like Sarah Palin riding in the back of him?
God bless our fallen as we remember and thank them for their ultimate sacrifice.
Many thank-yous to our veterans!
Amen! Powell is nothing but an afirmative action traitor!
I had watched the concert in DC for Memorial Day and Colin Powell could simply had said a simple “thank-you” to the vets without getting into great details.
I practice what I preach: THANK-YOU to those who have had or are now serving.
“Dictator”? Is that a tongue in cheek designation?
