INTRODUCTION & PURPOSE

Introduction

Rolling Thunder® Indiana Chapter #1 (RTIN1) rides to Washington DC every year to pay tribute to our fallen American Heroes of the Vietnam War and to honor American Heroes from All Wars. We participate in the XXX Anniversary "Ride for Freedom" which is a peaceful demonstration through the streets of Washington DC to remind our leaders of this great Nation that we are still asking for accountability of our Service Members that are still listed as Prisoner of War or Missing in Action.

RTIN1 is a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization that relies on individual donations and corporate sponsorship to remain operational, and perform one of our main missions which is to participate in the XXX Anniversary "Ride for Freedom" demonstration to remind our leaders that our POWs and MIAs will not be forgotten. Your donation will make a difference.
