A rolling tribute is on its way to Washington, DC.

A group of bikers called Rolling Thunder took off this morning from Indianapolis for their annual trip to honor the fallen heroes of the Vietnam War.

"It's a great trip, great mission. It's a rolling thunder. This trip is not only an awesome bike ride, it's a mission. That mission is to remind the leaders of this great nation that the American Wolf Rider will not be left behind again. We won't tolerate it," said Michael Clark, president of Indiana Rolling Thunder.

The group will join in the "Ride For Freedom" in the nation's capital. It's the largest demonstration ride in the country, with hundreds of thousands of motorcycles.
