The Rolling Thunder visiting the Three Forks Museum and the museum board had a grill out for them. They presented the museum with a donation check for the food and spent some time out on the picnic tables enjoying hamburgers, hotdogs, cupcakes, and chips. One of their member, is the son of our board member Kenneth Isaacs. Love to have them visit with us. Last fall they also came into the community to host a few flag raising ceremonies in Lee County to raise awareness for POW and MIA service members.
Thank you for supporting the Three Forks Historical Center! We are blessed to have you all as friends!

Mission Statement of the Rolling Thunder:
The major function of Rolling Thunder®, Inc. is to publicize the POW☆MIA issue to create awareness. 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 or Missing In Action. They are also committed to helping American Veterans from all wars.
We at the Three Forks Historical Center were sad to hear that the West Liberty Military Museum located in the jail next to the Courthouse downtown was closing. Our President Bob Smith's sister Alane called and arranged a few pick up days for volunteers to take trailers and trucks to West Liberty to load up on display cases, artifacts, and more. We can not thank you enough Tony and Alane for thinking of us. We are sad that you had to close down, but feel honored that we can help display the artifacts you loaned and donated to the Three Forks Historical Center.
Thank you Jon Allen, Lee County EMA, Chuck Caudill, Lee County Judge Executive, Josh Caudill, Lee County Schools, and museum board members Kenneth Isaacs and Dedra Brandenburg who traveled and loaded artifacts several Fridays in a row.
