A scene from the Tomb of the Unknowns graces the motorcycle of Larry Klein, in town from Nashville, Ga.

Each Memorial Day, the bikers of "Rolling Thunder" ride their motorcycles into the nation's capital to call attention to soldiers still missing in action. The tribute raises consciousness... and money... for veteran's causes.

Producer Ned Wharton and sound engineer Daniel Shukhin put together an audio postcard from this year's event.
