Recently, a local disabled veteran reached out on social media asking for help acquiring and installing a flagpole for him at his home. Rolling Thunder president, Patricia Kallenbach, got wind of his request and offered to provide the pole, flags and the members, to help this veteran show his patriotism.
Another veteran reached out through this conversation and expressed his need for help in getting a flag pole at his home as well. Rolling Thunder said "Yes!" They rode in on a chilly Saturday morning, some in their trucks and cars and a few brave souls followed with the rumble of the rolling thunder sound of their motorcycles. They spent a great hour or so with each veteran thanking them for their service and installing their flag poles and flags.
