  1. Being a Member of Rolling Thunder RI Chapter 1. I would personally like to Thank my Husband and Member for Creating the Soldiers Cross Ceremony back in 2012. With Members taking part and each carrying a piece of the Soldiers Cross to complete and to pay tribute to our Fallen Men and Woman Is something Awesome to see done. Rolling Thunder Member poor their hearts out to support and to NOT let anyone ever Forget !! Remember —- Gone but, NOT Forgotten. Thank You Ron Hawkins and past and present Members of Rolling Thunder Inc., RI Chapter 1.. 🙂

      1. Wish I could be, but, we (Ron and I ) have moved to Tn. We are hoping to carry on down here, supporting all Veterans 🙂 Enjoy It is a beautiful tribute
