Veterans Plan Second D.C. Protest For October 15, 2013

994025_634874183232138_838147450_nFrom The National Liberty Federation Facebook Page:

Another group of military veterans is scheduled to arrive in D.C. tomorrow morning to carry out a second protest, demanding lawmakers immediately end the government shutdown.

The protest is being organized by The Military Coalition (TMC), a group of 33 organizations that represents 5.5 million people. Members are comprised of the uniformed services—active, reserve, retired veterans, survivors and their families.

TMC’s protest arrives on the heels of the “Million Vet March” that occurred over the weekend attracting thousands of veterans who marched on the National Mall and then on to the White House to peacefully demonstrate their anger over the government shutdown.
Veterans voiced their displeasure for the closing of the memorials as they removed the barricades and carried them to the White House where they stacked them neatly out front.

“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’s time to make a stand.”

TMC believes in strength in numbers and hopes the rally will grab the attention of lawmakers tomorrow, and put an end to the suffering inflicted on veterans stemming from the government shutdown. Veterans on disability and GI Bill benefits are unsure if they’ll receive their next check, and their access to medical care has been severely limited following the rollout of Obamacare.

When he got to the Delaware memorial, he thought it was odd that the flag poles were empty.
Says Rick Harvey: Myself and another couple were just about to call it a day when about forty members of Second Brigade rolled in…When they saw no flags flying from the Memorial’s flagpoles, they insisted on having me and my Flag in the pics which I was honored to do…GOD BLESS AMERICA! peace!!! — at Delaware Memorial Bridge WWII Monument in New Castle, DE. — at WWII Memorial at the foot of the Delaware Memorial Bridge in New Castle, DE.

OLDER WOMAN STUCK BY POLICE!
Just witnessed police whack older women with night clubs. Young kids pushed and crying. Out of control. I was in the middle of it all. Equally sad and proud of what I saw today.

FROM OUR FACEBOOK FRIEND, DEBBIE, WHO WAS AT THE VET MARCH TODAY:
This sweet, very old lady was a veteran and was being interviewed. She was holding a closed/keep out sign. So sad how these veterans have been disrespected! via 100 Percent Fed Up

“Don’t MESS with our Military and our Veterans ever again.”
Patriots at the Million Vets Carry Barricades from the Lincoln Memorial to the White House: The US government has been shut down several times in the past.
What makes this shutdown different is that Barack Obama spent taxpayer dollars to erect barricades at national monuments to keep the American public out. Today patriots at the Million Vets March carried barricades from the Lincoln Memorial to set up at the White House.

cropped-header

Would you like to stand with our Veterans and push back against Obama’s Government strong-arming these brave heroes by closing the Memorials built in their honor, but you cannot make it to Washington, DC? There will be patriots all over the country standing in solidarity with these brave heroes at various rallying points.

Rally

Below is a list of rallying points at our memorials.  Honor their sacrifice even if you can’t make it to DC!

We are asking you to never assemble at a national or war cemetery.  Our brothers in arms deserve that respect!

Some answers to frequently asked questions:

TRANSPORTATION/LODGING:
We are not arranging transportation or lodging for the October 13th event in DC. If you’d like to attend and are looking for a ride, theTruckers Ride For The Constitution recommends posting your location on their wall and they will see if they can connect you with a trucker heading that way. Alternatively, you’re welcome to post on our wall to see if someone can carpool with you. Have room in your vehicle? Post that too. And please make sound travel decisions and travel safely!

WHERE’S MY LOCAL MEMORIAL?
If you CANNOT make the main event in DC, simply go to the war memorial closest to you at 9 AM October 13th. If you can take a vet with you, even better. Remember, one of our goals is to assist vets in accessing their memorials. As we can’t keep up with all the requests for finding local memorials nationwide, we have put together a list if memorials by state here:

https://1mvetmarch.wordpress.com/rally/

Don’t see your local memorial on our list? That’s ok – just go to your local memorial with friends and family, take photos and post pictures on our wall to participate. Imagine the impact of photos from across the nation – Americans participating in a nationwide event for our honored veterans!

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
EVERYONE. You do not have to be a veteran to join us. You simply need to be someone who cares about our cause and wishes to honor our veterans with dignity and respect.

Veterans Fight Back! October 13, 2013- Million Vet March on the Memorials

TWITTER: https://twitter.com/1MVetMarchJoin fellow veterans at the war memorials in Washington DC on Sunday October 13th at 9 AM. These memorials belong to the American veterans and people!

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.

 

Get ready to join a million vets in Washington DC and online! The Administration has closed down war memorials that are normally open 24/7 and that do not have any staff to guard them under normal circumstances.
