Vermont Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Sharon, VT Vermont Thunder XV RideVermont Thunder XV RideVermont Thunder XV Ride


This years ride will begin at the newly dedicated Vermont Vietnam Veterans Memorial which is located in the new Rest Area on the North Lane of Interstate 89 approx. 5 miles north of Exit 1. Bikes will begin staging at 9:30 A.M. in the upper and lower parking areas and a wreath laying will take place at 11:00 a.m. Bikes will depart for Richmond at 11:30. Vermont Thunder was started in 1993 by Bill Fitzpatrick from Bristol, Vt. Bill is not only a Vietnam Veteran but also a biker who wanted to raise public awarenenss to the still missing POW's and MIA's. Recognizing the fact that many Veterans and/or their supporters could not make the trek to Washington, DC. for various reasons, Vermont Thunder was started to run in conjunction with Rolling Thunder with the same goals. It was fitting that the run was made on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Highway, I-89, and the distance equaled the number of Vermonters lost in Vietnam. The Run ends in Enosburg Falls at the Granite Monument marking the Apex of the Moving Wall during its visit to Enosburg Falls in 1997. Now both rallies have the same destination. Vermont Thunder is non-profit and any monies raised from the sale of flags and patches is donated to veterans and or their families in a time of need.
