Thanks for your help…
Attention: All Veterans and Veteran Supporters: There is a community movement for the Homosassa- Halls River Bridge to be dedicated to a Citrus County Purple Heart Veteran named Jim Bitter. The bridge would have to be dedicated by the Legislature of the State of Florida. In an effort to win local support for this cause, this project will be on the Citrus County Commission Agenda on July 11th, please attend this meeting and voice your support. If unable to attend please write or call the BOCC.
Beatty graduated, first female cannoneer in the Army, March 11, 2016, at Fort Sill, Okla. She excelled during training – earning the title of distinguished honor graduate for Class No. 12-16. She was assistant platoon guide and helped teach her peers, earned the top scores in several exams and passed her Go/No go events, including the high physical demand test. Beatty had the advantage of being a power lifter with her Army infantryman husband, Charles, before enlisting.

Rolling Thunder Fl Ch 7 Looking for Members
Rolling Thunder®, Inc. is NOT a motorcycle club or a veterans organization. We are a group of concerned citizens working to make people aware of the Prisoners Of War-Missing In Action (POW-MIA) issue.
The major function of Rolling Thunder®, Inc. is to publicize the POW-MIA issue; to educate the public that many American Prisoners of War were left behind after all previous wars and to help correct the past and to protect future veterans from being left behind should they become prisoners of war – missing in action. We are committed to helping American veterans from all wars.
It takes a dedicated person to do what Rolling Thunder®, Inc. does. One must believe in the Mission Statement and carry out the cause which the Mission Statement describes. You must believe in your heart that there are POW/MIAs still alive from past wars and believe that one day we will find prisoners alive that are begin held captive and bring them home where they belong, to be with their families. We must remain vigilant, too, in our quest to bring home the remains of those that are confirmed KIA or MIA.
The POW/MIA issue, the veterans’ needs and the the information our government puts out, are a plethora of knowledge. We must work together to make sure that the correct information is publicized and we must educate the public about our issues. We do this by working together; getting out into our community as a group and making sure our newest members are in acceptance of the Mission Statement. This is what will keep interest growing in the chapter.
- You do not have to ride a motorcycle to be part of Rolling Thunder®, Inc.
- You do not have to be a veteran to join the organization.
If you want to join to be part of a biker club or sit around and collect a bunch of cool patches; please consider joining another organization. This is not the kind of member that we are looking for. We are looking for members that will be there when needed; that will help out in all circumstances and give of their time unselfishly to support the Mission Statement.
There are thousands of female veterans in this country that were or still are a very large part of the fight for our freedom in this country. We would like to say “Thank you for your service” to all of them.
If you are a female veteran, or you are still in the military please join us so that we can say thank you. You can also join our forum.
