We have been busy here at the dealership getting things ready for the big Memorial Day weekend. This afternoon things quieted down a bit and I had some time to think about feelings and reasons surrounding the holiday. It seems like there is more going on here than where I have lived before, in part because we are uniquely positioned in Southern Maryland and have a big military and government presence that is an important part of the culture here.
I was talking earlier to some of the guys that work here and found out that a couple of them will be meeting up at All American Harley Davidson to participate in the Rolling Thunder ride in Washington DC. Everyone who goes, has the desire to pay respect to the brave men & women who sacrifice so much in defense of our freedom.
Thousands of bikes will roll through the streets and ultimately end up near the Relecting Pool where Rolling Thunder speakers will take the stage.
I have not gone, but it is on my bucket list of things to do before I am unable to. The men and women who have served, or are currently serving our country, deserve our thanks and our respect. Rolling Thunder parade is one way people show how they feel, what are some of the other ways we can show our appreciation – not only on Memorial Day – but every day? I hope you will join us here at Waldorf Ford in giving a big thank you to all of our troops.
