The major function of Rolling Thunder®, Inc. is to publicize POW-MIA issues: to educate the public that many American prisoners of war were left behind after all previous wars and to help correct the past and to protect future veterans from being left behind should they become prisoners of war-missing in action.
We are also committed to helping American veterans from all wars.
Rolling Thunder®, Inc. is a non-profit organization. Members donate their time because they believe in the issues we are working on.
Rolling Thunder®, Inc. is NOT a motorcycle club. You DO NOT need to own a motorcycle to belong. Yes, many of ourmembers do in fact ride motorcycles. This has a great deal to do with the freedom and independence that riding gives and after all, isn't that what this country was built on?
Many members have served or are currently serving in the US Armed Forces. Other members are mothers and fathers, husbands and wives, sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, or just friends of someone who has served or is currently serving. And others are folks who have no military past, but care about the issues that Rolling Thunder cares about.
So please if you see the Rolling Thunder® Inc. logo amongst the leather vests, patches, pins and motorcycles, take a moment to come over and say hi. We will be happy to explain to you what we do and why we do it so that you can better understand what we are all about.
