Incredible.

The 25th annual Rolling Thunder Run rolled  into Washington, D.C. today.

Rolling Thunder includes hundreds of thousands of motorcyclists who ride to honor our veterans and in memory of prisoners of war and those missing in action.

More from Weta.org:

In the summer of 1987, Ray Manzo, a corporal in the USMC, and Artie Muller, a Vietnam veteran, came together with an idea. Frustrated that the voice for missing soldiers was not loud enough, they sought to bring attention to the cause. They planned a group motorcycle ride to the Vietnam Wall for Memorial Day 1988 and started recruiting riders. “It will be the sound of rolling thunder coming across that bridge” said Bob Schmitt, one of the early organizers as he envisioned the event.

It’s getting dusty in here. Sniffle.

Sarah and Todd Palin participated in 2011 and she also tweeted about the wonderful event last year.

From her Facebook page:

Todd and I and our family would like to wish you all a happy Memorial Day weekend. We’d especially like to offer our best wishes to our friends in Rolling Thunder who will be taking part in their Ride for Freedom this weekend in D.C. as they do each year to honor our vets and specifically to bring awareness to POW/MIA issues. We were honored to join them last year.

Twitter users are providing spectacular photos and vine videos, while providing on-the-scene reports.
