On a gray Tuesday morning on Capitol Hill Sen. John McCain addressed several hundred members of Vets for Freedom -- the largest Iraq and Afghanistan veterans' organizations in the country. In DC's upper Senate Park, McCain and other pro-victory Senators and Congressmen rallied for success in Iraq.

We saw three members of Vets for Freedom on Glenn Beck last night. Appear to be some very fine young men.
We need more like them to “step up to the plate” and run for local, state & federal public office if we are ever going to turn this whole mess around.

I was priviledged to be part of helping at one of their stops as well as be with them in DC. Hubby is a member. We had a very interesting time trying to get into to see Murtha. More details later this evening.
