Students at Grantsville Elementary School recently learned about the book Rolling Thunder by Kate Messner and illustrated by Greg Ruth. They received a visit from several Memorial riders who shared about the Rolling to Remember memorial ride. This ride to the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, D.C., is in honor and memory of Veterans and POWs.
According to the Rolling to Remember website, from May 26-28th, a motorcycle demonstration will conduct a motorcycle demonstration ride in our nation’s capital to raise awareness of the critical issues facing our nation’s veterans and demand action for the 82,000 service members missing, as well as raise awareness of the 22 veterans who die by suicide each day. The message will be clear throughout…”We will never forget our POWs and MIAs, and we won’t stop fighting for real solutions to the suicide crisis.”
If you or a veteran you know needs help due to emotional distress or suicidal crisis, the Suicide Prevention Lifeline is available via phone call (988 and press 1 for the Veteran’s Crisis Line), chat (https://www.veteranscrisisline.net), or text 838255.
