A new rally is forming, “Million Vet March On The Memorials” that will be held 9am October 13, 2013 at the war memorials in Washington D.C.
The group is fed up with veterans being used as political pawns and are calling all patriots to attend, via their facebook page:
We are all military brats, current and former military spouses and some veterans. We cannot express how utterly disappointed we were that our Greatest Generation were being used as political pawns in the ongoing government shutdown and budget crisis. This should never be the case.
We do not care what political leanings you may be; be it liberal, conservative, Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, Independent or whatever. The actions of the U.S. government this week with regard to barricading and shutting down the World War II Memorial to veterans, that may or may not be on their last trip to Washington DC, is a despicable act of cowardice.
Where did it come from?
Sounds like an awesome idea! Meanwhile, keep the calls into the congress and senate going. Letting them know Mr. Failure to Compromise and also Presidential Dictactor Obama who spent more then any other of all the Presidents combined in History of the USA is the real cause of the Government shutdown. Obamacare is not worth the paper it is written on in my opinion.
We know there is big trouble in our media for supporting this corruption and this administration! They could not get away with it but for these fools in media! We should see now why we left Vietnam when even the Chinese people wanted us there! A note for those who have not seen this, a new Yahoo Answers programmed by a Liberal! Some Conservatives are moving to the Canada site to get the old version. The purpose was to take away our right to speak out. Try posting and you will find Answers will remove anything that does not support the Liberal agenda! Freedom of speech by a major media, namely AT&T who owns Yahoo.. out the window! Virgil
Viet Nam has Vietnamese people in it. The Chinese people live in China.
The mainstream media is clearly on Soebarka/Soetoro/Obama's side on this (and so many) issues. Why are we supporting our enemies?
Is it not time for us to cancel our subscriptions and change channels for Fox News until there is a change of management in the MSM sources? We have alternate news sources on the Internet, and we can do without the local society pages for a few weeks until they surrender!
Is it not treason to our causes to continue to support our enemies?
And, is not the MSM treasonous to Journalism itself and its code of ethics?
You make us proud Kevin . . . You're in our prayer's every step of the way !!!
Bless You For Your Service & Enduring Backbone !!!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE AND YOUR CONTINUING SERVICE, KNOW THT. U R IN OUR PRAYERS AND WHEN WE TEAR UP WE DO IT OUT OF PRIDE. BE SAFE.
You Sir are wonderful.
What heros you and all the others are. Since some of us can not go, you are our voices also. God speed.
This is an an absolute disgrace!! Veterans are the foundation of this country. I have never served in the military so I cannot compare myself to these great heroes. But I will show my utmost respect to them, they have done something that few men could ever do, and they did it with pride and honor! I unfortunately have to work on this great event but know the veterans of America and our active service men and women overseas have my prayers and thoughts in mind. I know it is not much to offer, but it is the least I can do to honor these great Americans. God Bless you all, thank you for your service, and may you come home safely to your families and cherish every moment with them.

We should do like the big labor unions do. Most of these lowlifes can not afford to get to the site so the unions collect money then load the buses . We need to get as man as we can to donate and then bus our patriots to dc. It is doable. I for one do not have the money to make this trip but I would if we could be bused. I am also willing to make phone calls to collect money, as I am sure many others are in the same boat I am. We really need to follow the democrats lead in this because they have it down to a science. Im willing to help. Ken Brooks
