quote:WASHINGTON -- Rolling Thunder will no longer hold its annual Memorial Day motorcycle ride through Washington, D.C., after 2019, organizers announced Thursday.

The nearly 32-year-old tradition is ending because of escalating costs and a lack of cooperation from the Pentagon and metropolitan police departments, according to a letter shared by Artie Muller, a Vietnam veteran and founder of Rolling Thunder. Muller said he plans to send the letter to supporters in January.

quote:Costs for this year's ride totaled more than $200,000, Muller said. The nonprofit hasn't been able to recruit a new corporate sponsor, and Rolling Thunder didn't sell enough merchandise, such as patches, pins and flags, Muller wrote.
