Calling All Patriots and Veterans: Million Veteran March On The D.C. Memorials October 13th -

million man veteran march

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.

@ Alan. First of all Thank you for your service Sir.  But with due respect we cannot win elections in a Country that has become LAWLESS and CORRUPT and  I am sorry sir that you cannot see the Forest for the Trees. The very Constitution you defended is being TORN APART daily by this President and his 'Regime!'  This President was elected twice through FRAUD. 

Sorry to disagree with your analysis of the Tea Party Sir! We are Mothers and Grandmothers that want FREEDOM to be there for our Children and Grandchildren.  Senator Cruz, Mike , Michele Bachman, Louie Gomert and others are the ONLY hope our Country has to stop the ELITISTS in our Gov.t from enslaving us to their Progressive (Communist) Agenda.  Inconceivable isnt it????

politicizing by the tea party? hmmmm it would seem that the Vets see the real thing? The obama care senario, the chemicals in our foods and water made to stupify the masses? A drug war made possible by the CIA, FBI and BATF black ops parts of those agencies.  A government of who? or what? Traitors fill the ranks in the political system. The people of the tea party are but pawns in this dirty game. the masses still have yet to understand the realness of this Organization foreign t this republic who have stolen our money, our job structure's, our ability to even defend ourselves.

Hegel was correct  divide the peoples attentions show them a good and a bad side to themselves, Allow them to feel lost and apathetc   and in but a short ttime an internal invader will takeover

Driving through Simpsonville SC today I saw two guys dressed in fatigues holding a sign which read "Stand Your Ground". I don't think they were active military but certainly Vets. As I drove by as they stood at attention my eyes swelled with tears as their silence spoke volumes. In silence I held up my hand showing one finger to show them this person stood with them. There was no need for shouting, honking or pushing as the old saying says, 'Silence is Golden'. What these 'Oblique Democrats' in this Administration are doing to our Military and Vets is vile and disgusting. I've never been so appalled with humans before until this Administration entered Office. I never thought I would live to see America defile the bravery of our Military men and women and, abuse their families with cuts to what they are entitled to under their service of support. When Obama went after our Military he made the biggest mistake of his career to date. The Silent Majority who lived through the shameful period of the 60's Radicals remember the shame they covered the American Flag with lasting over a decade and we swore to ourselves, never again. They can call us names, they can refuse to sign a Balanced Budget, they can try and push their Obamacare down our throats but, don't dare attack our Military in any form or shape. I can't get to DC on such short notice but I can stand outside Senator Graham's office with my sign "Stand Your Ground" which seems to be our battle cry. I don't know where Sentator Graham will be but it's of no importance. What is important is that I will be there.

I wonder if they are aware of the truckers will be there at the same time?

I am a veteran of two wars and a volunteer with the Honor Flight Network.  All the memorials mean a great deal to all of us.  To march in defense of those memorials, however, while celebrating the cessation of food inspection, industrial discharge inspection, research at the NIH, early childhood education programs and other critical public services smacks of the very politicizing of veterans that you are 'protesting'.  If this issue really matters to you, then I can only assume you are equally enthusiastic about dumping incompetent leaders like Cruz and Bachmann.  The party and the country would be better for it, and, let's be honest, no one has used veterans as political pawns in the past week more than the tea-party heroes.  Many veterans feel this way, and we are soon to learn the hard way how much of America is fed up with the tea-party caucus.  Vote up-or-down to fund the government.  If you don't like one law or another, win elections or rally the votes in Congress to repeal it.  That's what the Constitution demands.  We all still defend the Constitution, don't we?

There is alot going on this weekend between the VETS and The Truckers and a GENERAL STRIKE GOING ON

Everyone can participate whether you can come or not!


What can you do to help? After all, you don’t drive a truck. There are 8 things most of us can do. You can do what millions of others plan to do from Friday through Sunday night.

  1. You can show your solidarity with the truckers by refusing to spend any money on those days. None, zilch. Don’t participate in any commerce at all. Fill up your car with gas on October 9th. Buy your groceries, pay your bills, get cash out of the bank, and stock up on needed supplies beforehand. Just don’t buy anything at all during this important revolt.
  2. Find your closest Overpass to Impeach Obama group and go hold a sign up to encourage the truckers. If you can’t physically go to an overpass, help someone who can by helping make signs and gather flags for others to hold up.
  3. Drive with your lights on in solidarity with the truckers and honk, wave and smile at them as they pass you
  4. Fly your flag at home.
  5. Put signs in your yard.
  6. Post encouraging memes etc. on Facebook
  7. Wear red, white, and blue
  8. Call and/or email your representatives in Washington and let them know that a few thousand of your closest friends are headed their way to deliver a message from you.

I would love to be there but my finances and family obligations won't allow it.  I wish you ALL God Speed.  Stand tall my fellow veterans, stand tall and firm!!!
