Once every year, we have great difficulty driving out of out neighborhood. We live off Route 27 near the Pentagon. The main arteries that surround our neighborhood are filled with motorcycle riders today. Over 1 million motorcycles have been making their way into town this morning. Several streets have been blocked to provide space for bike parking.
The aim of the bike ride is raise awareness about POWs or prisoners of war and MIAs or those missing in military action. Many of the riders are former members of the military. They are extremely well-behaved people who don’t stab police officers or bust up the local sites. Very refreshing.
