Biden Admin Blocks Annual POW and MIA Memorial Day DC Motorcycle Rally Tradition

President Biden’s administration is blocking an annual pro-veteran motorcycle rally to honor U.S. military veterans.

For over 30 years, the annual Rolling to Remember motorcycle rally was held on Memorial Day in Washington, D.C., to honor veterans – prisoners of war (POWs) and those missing in action (MIA).

The event was normally staged in the Pentagon parking lot, however, the Pentagon blocked the use of this area by rejecting the permit citing risks of the coronavirus.

Breitbart reports:

In past years, the Rolling to Remember motorcycle ride, formerly known as Rolling Thunder, had used the Pentagon parking lot as the pre-ride staging area to line up for the processional ride from the Department of Defense to the war memorials on the National Mall.

Florida Republican Representative Brian Mast, a U.S. Army veteran and double amputee, blasted the Biden administration.

California Republican Representatives Darrell Issa and Ken Calvert issued a joint statement slamming the decision.

AMVETS’ national executive director Joe Chennelly commented on Fox News:

“What, traditionally, this event has been all about is our missing in action. We have more than 80,000 Americans who are still missing in action since World War II,” Chennelly continued. “We are committed to still having a central staging area. … We have a Plan B and a Plan C.”

Critics commented on social media.

The Biden administration is sending the wrong message blocking the traditional motorcycle rally to honor our military veterans.
