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 and everyone donates his or her time because they believe in the POW/MIA Issue that we are working on.
Membership Meeting: 4th Sunday of the month @ 1:00pm, VFW Post 8422
Rolling Thunder®, Inc., is an activist organization which stays involved in many veteran and patriotic issues. Members of Tennessee Chapter One must be willing to give at least two days per month to Rolling Thunder.
The organization was formed to get the federal government to gain the release of the remaining Prisoners Of War that were left behind in Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam at the end of the Vietnam War. The fact that hundreds of POW’s were left behind is a fact. The ongoing purposeful blocking of information and refusal to take any action to gain the release of these Prisoners of War by the federal government is also a fact.
Rolling Thunder is the nation’s leading organization working to insure these American patriots are not forgotten or abandoned. Rolling Thunder organizes an annual protest ride in Washington DC to remind government bureaucrats, the public and politicians that we have not forgotten and we expect them to honor their commitments to America’s veterans. We expect them to account for all of the missing from all wars. We expect them to take care of those who have given so much for the freedoms and liberty we enjoy.
Rolling Thunder®, Inc., is NOT a motorcycle club. It is NOT a requirement to have a motorcycle or to be a veteran to be a member of Rolling Thunder®, Inc. It is only a requirement that you be willing to dedicate your time to the POW/MIA issue and helping veterans.
