We are a non-profit organization 501(c)(4) dedicated in bringing support and awareness to the POW/MIA and KIA issue from all past, present wars and conflicts.
We are guided by the principals of freedom as Americans. Sacrifice given by that of our military personnel and the brotherhood of all U.S. citizens to ensure that we maintain our focus on the issue at hand.
Our goal is to heighten awareness of these issues through community events as well as our annual "RUN TO THE WALL" rally in May of each year.
In the fall of 1987, Vietnam veterans met to discuss their personal concerns about the POW/MIAs from
the Vietnam War.
Having honorably served their country and having taken an oath to "support and
defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies..." and to "bear true faith and allegiance
to same," they were deeply troubled by the abhorrent neglect of attention given to those who did not
make it out with their lives or their freedom.
These veterans discussed the more than 10,000 reported
sightings of live Americans living in dismal captivity. Intelligence reports of these sightings were generally
ignored by the government and mainstream press.
Incorporated in 1995, Rolling Thunder, Inc. is a class 501(c)(4) non-profit organization with over 90
chartered chapters throughout the United States and members abroad.
While many members of Rolling
Thunder are veterans and many ride motorcycles, neither qualification is a prerequisite. Rolling Thunder
members are old and young, men and women, veterans and non-veterans.
All are united in the cause to
bring full accountability for Prisoners Of War (POW) and Missing In Action (MIA) of all wars, reminding the
government, the media and the public by our watchwords: “We Will Not Forget.”
