To a half million vets & Harley riders who participated in yesterday’s Rolling Thunder event, Joe Lozano is “Dragon Joe”. Joe is a Viet Nam veteran, and travels these days from Georgia each May to participate in Rolling Thunder. His wife, Mee owns & rides her own Harley Davidson motorcycle as well, and is a veteran of the US Army and of Rolling Thunder.
To us, Joe & Mee are also our former neighbors from our first apartment, and we try to see them each year after the Rolling Thunder events have wound down. We met them and several of their military brothers at an old favorite restaurant – Magic Wok in Springfield, Va. We even saw our original waiter from the 1990s there. He remembered all of us. It was a great reunion!
There are a half million brothers & sisters of Dragon & Mee in town, and we salute them all with gratitude. Thank you for your service & sacrifice.
