Bikers for Veterans: 2013 Rolling Thunder (Video Included)

The Fort Thomas Independent Schools participated in an event, The 2013 Rolling Thunder, observing war veterans.

As the convoy passed by each elementary school a POW / MIA flag will be hoisted into the sky, and will remain up through the Memorial Day weekend.

The parade of war veterans started at the Campbell County YMCA at 8:00am and will proceeded to pass by each school, ending at the Peace Bell in Newport.

The event was organized by Highlands High School junior Eric Hempleman, a VA Hospital volunteer.

Many came out to honor our nations bravest as The Rolling Thunder parade passed through the city making their way to an elementary school of their choosing.  The only requirement was unbridled patriotism, and that was no doubt present.

    St. Catherine School participated in this event as well. The entire St. Catherine student body cheered the Rolling Thunder parade as they made their way from down Rossford Avenue. Thanks to Eric Hempleman for making this happen!
