Rolling Thunder will make a stop at the on Sunday for breakfast before heading to the Vietnam War Memorial for the annual Rolling Thunder motorcycle rally.
Since 1988, Rolling Thunder has converged on Washington on Memorial Day weekend to bring greater awareness to prisoners of war (POW) and those missing in action (MIA)—and to show support for veterans of all wars.
Breakfast at the legion is at 7 a.m. and open to guests. Bikers will eat in the banquet hall. Guests will dine in the restaurant and can watch Rolling Thunder as they head out for the rally. But visitors may have to eat quick to do so, because the bikers tend to head out by 8:15 a.m. or before.
Though in smaller number than the morning crowd, some of the bikers even return later in the day—anywhere from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.—for the legion's annual picnic. Guests are welcome to join the bikers and the legion for food and fellowship.
Lunch prices vary depending on meal selection.
"We come up to pay our reverence and then party for those who can't," Alan Nesbit said, who rode his bike into Greenbelt all the way from Greenville, NH, last year.
