Friends and Colleagues,
This urgent note came in last night. It is running here as a guest blog, on behalf of my personal friend Captain Larry Bailey, USN. Please forward this as you deem appropriate, especially to the media, to your elected officials, to TEA Parties and other patriotic organizations, and especially Vet’s groups.
This March is an Historical Event for our nation. Thank you, and may God Bless America.
John D. Trudel
What: Veterans March to take back our war memorials
When: Sunday, October 13, 2013, at 9:00 AM
Where: World War II Memorial, Washington, DC
Why: The Obama Administration is using the government shutdown as an excuse to keep our veterans from acknowledging the debt owed to them and their predecessors. This is unforgivable. It is also unjustified, as no taxpayer funds are spent by keeping these shrines open. We will open them ourselves, if that’s what it takes.
Be with Special Operations Speaks on Sunday as we join other veteran-support organizations in repossessing what belongs to us and the nation, not to a bunch of political hypocrites. (See www.specialoperationsspeaks.com)
Keep up to date on this event by checking our website: www.vetmarch.com. The latest information will be posted as soon as it’s available.
We know that there may be some degree of confrontation, given the anti-military attitude of the administration. It is our intention to avoid confrontation, and we request that you join us in avoiding any kind of physical contact with Park Rangers, police, or other law-enforcement personnel. Give them no excuse to hijack the moment.
Pass the word. BE THERE!
