Washington: un desfile de “Harley Davidson” por los caídos en la guerra de Vietnam

El Día de los Caídos o Memorial Day que se conmemora hoy lunes en todos los Estados Unidos de Norteamérica, ha comenzado con la 22 edición del desfile organizado por la asociación sin fines de lucro “Rolling Thunder”.

Miles de veteranos de la guerra de Vietnam (1964-1973) recorrieron durante todo el día las calles de Washington a bordo de sus “Harley Davidson” para rendir homenaje a los ex combatientes y caídos en guerra. Quienes ya eran motoristas en los sesenta, llegan tatuados, con largas melenas, enfundados en chalecos de cuero y con múltiples insignias acuden puntuales y comienzan a reunirse en el Pentágono con antiguos camaradas, familiares, amigos y gente anónima que va a rendir tributo.

El desfile tiene como destino último el Monumento de los Caídos en Vietnam, un muro de granito oscuro donde están impresos los nombres de los más de 58.261 soldados que murieron o desaparecieron en el sudeste asiático.

La organización ‘Rolling Thunder’, fundada en 1995 por el veterano de guerra Artie Muller nació con la idea de honrar a quienes murieron sirviendo a su país y, a pesar de que hubo un momento en el que el atractivo de las ‘Harley Davidson’ pudo eclipsar el motivo original de la concentración, después de lo ocurrido el 11 de septiembre de 2001 (11-S), el público ha tomado conciencia y se está recuperando su espíritu original.

La asociación pidió al Gobierno que no descuide la situación de los prisioneros de guerra y desaparecidos en combate. Sería bueno, además, que el propio Gobierno no olvide ni descuide la situación de sus propios prisioneros de guerra detenidos en Guantánamo y otras cárceles.

    the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
    Thank you!

    it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but
    I had to tell someone!
