Colonel Harry Riley, USA Ret, Chairman of EaglesUp has a message for America. You can read that message on the EagleUp website.
Chris Hill, National Director of Gathering of Eagles has this message:
All of us remember St. Patrick's Day, 2007. It was blustery, cold, bitter and just about perfect. The time has come to revisit that emotion. Those that would disparage our brave men and women in uniform are planning to congregate in our nation's Capital once again this coming March. On March 15, 2008, Gathering of Eagles, in coordination with Move America Forward, Freedom's Watch, The Band of Mothers, Vets for Freedom, DC Protest Warrior, Eagles Up, Free Republic, New England Warrior and rank and file patriotic Americans, will come together to Support Our Troops and their in-theater commander, General David Petraeus. Under the banner AMERICANS STANDING UP, we will gather to face down the associated groups who are against everything we hold dear. We will stand united, wave Old Glory and remind them that they do not speak for us, nor most Americans. We encourage you all to join us in Washington, DC. It is time to once again take back the streets and remind all those people in their living rooms that there are people who think like them. It is time to once again, remind the nation that our brave volunteers in uniform have earned our support. The Surge is working. The tide has turned.
The organization Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) has aligned itself with elements of the extreme left in our country and is preparing to besmirch and degrade the efforts of our brave men and women serving in the military by accusing them of atrocities similar to the way John eFfing sKerry accused our Viet Nam veterans of atrocities.
No one stood up to the VVAW then, but we will stand up now against the lies and disinformation of this generations' Winter Soldier.
If you are a veteran of Iraq or Afghanistan we need your help one more time.
We will present a positive message about your efforts to bring peace and freedom to the people of Iraq and Afghanistan, but we need you to stand with us to show America the face of dedication, commitment, and honor.
Join us on 15 March 2008 as we show America the true face of the American Warrior.
All while posting this evening, I’ve been playing my “WE WERE SODLIERS” DVD once again, just for the CLARITY of it.
It is a privilege and a pleasure to have such warmth and closeness with those who seek and provide such CLARITY here on our http://www.Freerepublic.com Internet forum.
CLARITY, that if available to us long ago upon our return from the Vietnam War would have made all the difference on behalf of a then Free People’s fight to remain FREE ..far ..far away.
Thank you for your kindnesses...
...and for your CLARITY, do the dhue..!!

I have been reading the words of Hal Moore at http://www.lzxray.com/battle.htm. He was a great leader and I am sure it was an honor to serve with him. I was just watching some of the video there.
I am damn proud of all you men who served in Nam. I am ashamed of the people, media, and traitors who robbed our intrepid Troops of victory and the people of Vietnam of their freedom. I am truly sorry for that, but I am not responsible. I was born in 66.
All I can do today is fight the ideology here at home. And I will not waver, tire, falter, or fail our Troops. This is my promise to you Vets who served in Vietnam and our Troops fighting the WOT.
Miss Saigon’s CLARITY comes from her and her fellow countrymen’s so unnecessarily being forced long ago to horridly endure the:
“JOURNEY from the FALL”
Isn’t their simple LOVE of FREEDOM now THE Example for the rest of us to follow in a new time of war in a new century with our own FREEDOM directly at stake right here at home..?
Especially with some of the very people who did it to them so long ago now pushing hard in Congress to do it all over again to a FREE Iraqi People..?
NEVER ever AGAIN.

Anyway to get Moore to run for President?
I swear on all that’s holy one of the most defining moments of my life
-and there are many such moments-
was walking over that bridge, following those traitors, to see what they saw.
And I'm extremely thankful for that and for all the times in the past you've been there! I'm planning on coming again so please keep on the ping list. Concretebob, you don't seem to have me on your list :-(
P.S. I think that picture should win a Pulitizer--the first one I mean!
