Memorial Day in Washington

Memorial Day, May 25, 2003, Rolling Thunder was held to pay respect and honor towards the brave Americans that have served and gave the ultimate sacrifice for America and the world.

Operation Rolling Thunder (also known as the "Rolling Thunder Program", in terminology of the McNamara Department of Defense) was the code name for a U.S. military campaign during the Vietnam War, the bombing of North Vietnam by air units of the U.S. Seventh Air Force, Task Force 77, and the South Vietnamese Air Force. Rolling Thunder was the first of three sustained bombing campaigns against North Vietnam, followed in 1972 by Operation Linebacker and Operation Linebacker II.
