MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) – The first of the two weekends for the 74th annual spring rally is in the books as thousands of bikers hit the Strand for a good time and for a good cause.
The Rolling Thunder set up a booth at the Harley-Davidson dealership hoping to raise money to continue their mission of finding and bringing home American prisoners of war.
“Since World War 2, there are over 84 thousand unaccounted for and our mission is to educate people at the same time we also lobby up with congress to put pressure on them to bring our Americans home,” said chairman of the Rolling Thunder Myrtle Beach chapter Bill DeVaughn.
And while this organization is not only for bikers, Rolling Thunder members said with bikers, many find great interest in finding prisoners of war since many are veterans.
