The American Legion Riders Post 181 from Sandwich made a donation to Rolling Thunder Inc., Illinois Chapter No. 1 from the “Bowl for Vets” benefit Jan. 26. This donation will help Rolling Thunder to educate the public that many American prisoners of war have been left behind, to protect future veterans from being left behind should they become POW/MIA, and commit to helping veterans from all wars. The American Legion Riders is a motorcycle group of American Legion members who focus on veterans needs and support, coordinate “Welcome Home” celebrations, love to ride, participate in patriotic events and support community events. Pictured in front row presenting the donation to Jim Murray from Rolling Thunder Inc., Illinois Chapter No. 1, is Bob Lawrence, director of American Legion Riders Post 181, with Al Miller from Rolling Thunder. Members from the American Legion Riders Post 181 pictured are Linda and Cliff Oleson, Mike Rennels, Bob Mauer, Kevin Rife, Henry Herbst, Sandy Lawrence, Bill Kolb, Karla and Ralph Torres, Cherie Mauer and Sam Mataya.
