AMVETS PRESENTS ROLLING TO REMEMBER

FOR THE 33RD CONSECUTIVE YEAR, a massive motorcycle run will take place in the nation’s capital over Memorial Day Weekend to raise awareness of the plight of U.S. prisoners of war and the 82,000 service members still missing in action. The ride will be known as 'Rolling To Remember.'


The 2020 ride will also address the national suicide epidemic taking the lives of more than 20 military veterans a day. After the organization that ran the first 32 demonstrations announced it would no longer hold this vital event, AMVETS announced that we pledge to continue the tradition.

In addition to demanding accountability from the government for service members missing in action, the 2020 demonstration will also focus on the veterans suicide epidemic.

In close partnership with several other patriotic organizations, AMVETS is organizing what is expected to be the nation’s largest political demonstration of 2020 and the world’s largest one-day motorcycle event.

Three days of meaningful events in Washington, culminating with the motorcycle ride May 24, will be specifically focused on raising awareness of the issues impacting our warriors, their families and their survivors.


Events are scheduled to begin May 22. A special “Blessing of the Bikes” ceremony will take place at the Washington National Cathedral and a nighttime vigil at the National Vietnam Veterans Memorial May 22. A stage will be active on the steps of the famed Lincoln Memorial from early Friday afternoon through Sunday, featuring personal accounts of these issues, notable speakers, Gold Star families and entertainment.


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.
