1000 Hours, March 17, 2007
Viet Nam Memorial Wall
The anti-war/anti-America groups are planning a “march to the Pentagon” on March 17, 2007…this group has intentions that defenders of freedom cannot overlook or allow to occur…there must be a challenge.
Here’s a portion from the “anti-war” web site March 17 — March on Pentagon!: Time to Turn Up the Heat! that causes considerable concern: “The biggest single group of new volunteers and activists are soldiers and marines who have returned from Iraq. Their family members and other veterans are also organizing to March on the Pentagon. The opening rally will assemble at the Vietnam Memorial (Constitution Gardens) at noon.”
The anti-war/anti-America group cannot be allowed to use the Viet Nam Memorial Wall as a back-drop to their anti-America venom and stain the hallowed ground that virtually cries out with blood at the thought of this proposed desecration….it must not happen...Click on the eagle to go the Veterans' Gathering of Eagles website to learn more.
Word of the veterans and military supporters plan to defend the Vietnam Memorial from the assembly of radicals on March 17th spread, and soon Rolling Thunder was on board. Here's their announcement:
CALL FOR SUPPORT
March 17, 2007 Anti-War Demonstration and
March to the Pentagon to Assemble at the
VIETNAM VETERANS MEMORIAL
ATTENTION ALL MEMBERS
SUPPORTERS, AFFILIATES, FRIENDS OF
ROLLING THUNDER®; ALL MILITARY, VETERANS
MEET AT THE WALL 1000 HOURS / 17 MARCH 2007
IT IS OUR UNDERSTANDING THAT THE PROTESTERS PLAN ON GOING
RIGHT THROUGH THE IMMEDIATE AREA OF THE WALL / THREE MAN STATUE/
AND THE WOMEN'S MEMORIAL. IT IS OF UTMOST IMPORTANCE THAT WE
PROTECT OUR PRECIOUS MEMORIALS, THE SANCTITY OF THE
WALL AND DEFEND OUR TROOPS THAT ARE IN IRAQ AND FIGHTING
EACH AND EVERY HOUR FOR OUR COUNTRY.
At the anti-war protest in Washington, D.C. 2 weeks ago there was ALOT
of damage done at the Capitol steps. We cannot and will not allow this to
happen at The Wall or to any of our memorials.
More bloggers posted the plans and signed on for a road trip to DC to stand with the vets protecting and defending the honor of the soldiers memorialized on The Wall. And local radio hosts began talking about the March 17th events on their shows, from Florida to California. More and more groups are telling their members and supporters, and making their own plans to come to DC.
Move America Forward, a non-partisan, not-for-profit charitable organization committed to supporting America’s efforts to defeat terrorism and supporting the brave men and women of our Armed Forces is signed on! They have announced their plan to caravan across the US, holding small rallies along the way as folks join their caravan to DC to stand with the patriots defending The Wall from the radicals (Click on the image below to view their web announcement):
So, what are you waiting for?
Make your plans now to join us!
I will post more info as the plans firm up. As it stands right now, it looks like a few thousand vets, military supporters, military family members and Gold Star parents are coming to DC to stand up and tell the Revolutionary Communist Party, Workers World Party, International Socialist Organization, and other radical leftist organizations' members and supporters that this is OUR Wall, OUR country, OUR freedom that they are fighting against; and we are here to tell them to go to Hell.
Or Cuba. I hear that they are a workers paradise, with free health care and free education.
