It won’t be as loud, but American Veterans still plan to hold their annual Memorial Day motorcycle tribute to honor prisoners of war, those missing in action and veterans whose lives were cut short due to suicide.
Instead of Rolling Thunder, this year AmVets are holding a Rolling to Remember Challenge. The change was necessitated due to the global pandemic and restrictions on public gatherings.
Rather than ride their motorcycles to Washington, D.C. during the Memorial Day weekend, participants will ride 22 miles in their own communities this Sunday.
“We appreciate your support and flexibility during an unprecedented time in our nation’s history. We look forward to coming together, even stronger than before, to continue this important tradition in-person in 2021,” AmVets wrote.
