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.
Veterans this week were unwillingly pitted as pawns in this crisis. We feel that this should never be the case. This is why we will go to Congress after the budget crisis and ask for a bill to be introduced that would prevent any member of the government from closing our memorials down to any American, except for maintenance purposes. In the meantime, we will have our March in Washington DC on October 13th! Our veterans deserve that!
Many in our group have decided that enough is enough. We are Americans. We are proud of our heritage and our service. As all of us were military brats and spouses, we have served in some form or another our entire lives. This is our way of life. We will not stand by and let the U.S. government dishonor the legacy of sacrifice of the generations before us. It is time to make a stand! We hope that you will join us in our peaceful protest against anti-American policies.
The group also has a website, click here for more information.
Oh yes. There are way too many of us. The citizens of Maryland purchased guns in record numbers before the new draconian laws were to go into effect and swamped the system.
The Lefties were amazed that such a thing would happen. Idiots.
We The People of the United States of America would form the largest army the world had ever seen. And the Lefties know it.
It's an Honor to have someone like Finny on Sarah's Awesome List!
We need good Freepers like him/her!!!
Sarah won't submit, she stands up to the Government and their Incestuous relationship with Big Business.
It didn't work too well for Nicolae Ceausescu.
who runs the state ping lists?
I know some on here hate FB but groups I belong to have wonderful coverage of everything going on especially 2 million bikers to DC. One poster said, “hundreds of bikers show up and they open the WW 11 Memorial.”.
How about “taking a tour” of the Whitehouse while you’re at it?
In my mind, Obama has already failed. I will not obey him.
There’s going to be a Trucker strike during the same period. \

A three-day proposed trucker strike, set for Oct. 11-13 has been promoted by the Facebook group: Truckers to Shut Down America.
Most likely he will be somewhere far away in his 747...
Who’s letting them use them as a pawn??
Military veterans join push for Illinois gay marriage
Thank you, vets! And yes, “Hell Broke Loose” is the perfect song for all freedom rallies and marches.
“Im not against marching and opening up the peoples memorials and parks. Im just telling everyone to watch their back...”
Some of these memorials are in VA where the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is respected.
Zero is salivating over a confrontation. If he thinks that any branch of the police is going to use force against the veterans, he's completely mad. He's completely mad.
“IMO, the marching needs more oomph.”
Oooomph, Virginia style....
