Move America Forward
COUNTERS ANTI-WAR EFFORT
A national patriotic, pro-troop caravan will cross the nation, traveling from California to Washington, D.C. to show support for U.S. troops serving in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom.
The THESE COLORS DONT RUN national caravan (organized and sponsored by the pro-troop non-profit group Move America Forward www.MoveAmericaForward.org ) will depart San Francisco, California on the morning of Thursday, March 8, 2007, traversing the length of the state and then heading across the nation. The patriotic caravan will feature stops across the nation in major cities where pro-troop rallies will take place.
Leading the caravan will be Blue Star Mother Deborah Johns, whose son William is serving his 3rd tour of duty in Iraq; Gold Star Mother Debra Argel Bastian whose son, Derek, died in Operation Iraqi Freedom; Gold Star Father Joseph Williams whose son, Michael, died in Operation Iraqi Freedom; and John Ubaldi a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan).
At each rally, participants will bring American flags either a homemade one they created themselves, a store-bought flag, or a flag that has a special significance, history or meaning. The flags will be collected at each stop and brought to Washington, D.C. where they will be displayed to create a giant Flag City on Saturday, March 17, 2007.
The participants of Move America Forwards THESE COLORS DONT RUN caravan will join with several other patriotic and pro-troop organizations for a giant patriotic rally in Washington, D.C. on March 17th. Among the participating groups MAF is proud to support in this display of patriotism are: Free Republic, Gathering of Eagles, Vets for Victory, Rolling Thunder and Vets For Truth.
Theres been way too much negativity and doom-and-gloom mentality in this nation about our nation, our values and the missions our troops are serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, said Melanie Morgan, Chairman of Move America Forward.
Were sick and tired of the shameful subversiveness of the anti-war crowd and we decided its time to give Americans a chance to respond with a positive, uplifting and patriotic response, Morgan said.

Sounds good to me
No doubt, especially important message following that awful House Resolution today!
This message brought to you by FREEPNORAD. If anyone wants on or off this ping list, say so here or by freepmail.
Keep me posted, I'll ping folks along the route using the FREEPNORAD lists.
Woo hoo!! Way to go bump!!
Blessings to you all.
I will give you a heads up on the plans for each stops and what not!
You always do such great work for the cause!!
Conservatives are discouraged. But this is the time to put that behind you and get out and take the political debate back from the left.
Everyone expects the anti-war, Blame America First crowd, to be the big news.
If we make the big news a sea of red, white and blue, we can start to wake up Americans to the perils we face with a loss in the war in Iraq.
Everyone needs to support the caravan and get to Washington DC on March 17th if at all possible.
I love that graphic, very nice one!
Sounds like MAF organized this effort.
Those are the men and women that are going to come home and deal with the traitorous democrats and Republicans in Congress that are voting against them and their supplies and reinforcements and armor and training and equipment and weapons and vehicles.
They will vote against those politicians and many Vets will take their places in Congress.
Some of these politicians should be tried as traitors and hung. Preferrably after they are convicted.
You all know who I am talking about.
Those who leaked secret military information the media/Al-Qaeda, who worked and spoke to deliberately endanger our brave troops, who met and "chatted" with the enemy in time of war, who warned the enemy of military actions bu the US.
Jay Rockefeller, Jon Carry, Ted Kennedy, Joe Biden, the list goes on and on.....
Would love to join you, will see how finances might make it possible.
Impressive graphic post potlatch!
Sounds GRATE, U-Turn-Joe
Remember to take up the rear to keep the caravan in order. Don't let anyone follow you...
I'll join you for a while, and am planning to counter ANSWER and Code Pink in SF on March 17th.
Check your Freepmail
Thank you devolve.
Indeed it is!
We're coming through Texas this time! Hope to see you at one of our stops (looking at El Paso, Midland-Odessa, and Dallas as of right now).
I may be out of the loop, but where does the caravan go? I couldn't find any information. I may be interested in participating in D.C., and I was thinking of taking a bus. How can I find out where I go, etc.?
Thanks for any info.
Any info on the route they're taking?
Dubya: Meek, you're right! FreeRepublic.com IS the "Best site on the 'Net!"
Lol, thanks Meek and I like your post!
Maybe we can line the highways .. are they going to be on any of the major highways in the San Diego area ..??
The majority of the SD group are working, but I'd love to give them all a wave as they pass by.
The route has not been publicized yet, but soon will be. See post 15.
Got it. Thanks.
