Rolling Thunder 2006

MAY 28, 2006 Rolling Thunder Rally

Rolling Thunder held its annual Memorial Day rally honoring U.S. veterans, prisoners of war and those missing in action. It was described as a demonstration of the First Amendment right to demonstrate, as the organization continues to fight for an accounting by the federal government of all prisoners of war and missing military personnel. Other topics included health care in Veterans' Hospitals and the military action in Iraq and Afghanistan.
