NJ-based group rides to Washington to honor soldiers
Twenty-five years ago, two Garden State veterans founded a group called Rolling Thunder to support the country's prisoners of war (POW) and soldiers who are missing in action (MIA).
Today, Rolling Thunder boasts 90 chapters nationwide and continues its annual "Ride for Freedom" to the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial Wall in Washington D.C. on Memorial Day weekend.
A group of nearly 30 bikers met at the Molly Pitcher rest stop on the New Jersey Turnpike this morning before their ride to the nation's capital.
The group will take part in a larger demonstration scheduled to take place this weekend.
