Rolling Thunder (R) is an organization incorporated in 1987 with 90 chartered chapters. Rolling Thunder is also an annual protest demonstration with motorcycles that converge on Washington DC to demand a full accounting of our troops that were reported as POW/MIA. The name "Rolling Thunder" comes from a bombing campaign against North Vietnam that occurred between 1965 and 1968. The first Rolling Thunder demonstration was held in 1988 with approximately 2,500 motorcycles. Since then the peaceful, but loud, protest has grown to include hundreds of thousands of bikers.
