Memorial Day 2011

Rolling Thunder rolled out of Washington DC, on Sunday, with Sarah Palin in tow,  to honor U.S. brave men and women who served.

Palin was invited by Rolling Thunder said Media Director Christine Colborne.

You’ll hear Rolling Thunder’s “legislative director,” Ted Shpak, “trash talking” some MSNBC reporters at :24 secs in (according to YouTube poster, . )

Here’s a video I posted from last years Rolling Thunder’, an instant classic that will touch your heart: Rolling Thunder And A Marine’s Vigil:

A solitary Marine holds vigil at full attention during the Rolling Thunder motorcycle rally in tribute to fallen comrades.

Sgt Chambers explained himself in the YouTube comments:

This was a wild hair thing to do on my own accord, Why do people instantly think “why” like your question about more military out there. To begin with Rolling Thunder is a demonstration ride, so to have active duty supporting it in uniform is not going to happen. My salute was never for Rolling Thunder, it is to honor all the sacrifices America has made, along with demonstrate compassion and be a direct reflection of the heart and love Service Members have for humanity……..

Enjoy you picnics, today folks, but let’s not forget the noble men and women who gave their best and last measure of devotion; who sacrificed everything to preserve the freedom and liberty we still enjoy in this great country.
