Our nation’s veterans and active duty military will be gathering at the Washington Monument at noon on February 20, 2012. They will then proudly fall into formation as they march from the monument to the White House. Active duty military are asked to not wear their uniforms.
In a public show of strength, they will be undertaking what may best be described as perhaps one of the most unique anti-war protests and endorsement of a Presidential candidate in our nation’s history. Upon arriving at the White House, they will make an “about-face” so their backs are turned on the current administration. With a folded flag in view as a symbolic tribute to our fallen men and women in uniform, they will then hold a salute for as many seconds as those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice during Obama’s time in office. Family members of KIA are invited to place their hands on the folded flag. There will be transportation for disabled veterans to participate. They are also encouraging family members of military and all non-military supporters of their cause to come out and fall-in behind them in this march.
Make no mistake about it, members of our military and our nation’s veterans are not pleased about these unconstitutional, endless wars. They are not happy with the mainstream media’s biased and deplorable coverage of the only candidate in the Republican field that is not only a veteran but has a spotless voting record that spans over decades and demonstrates that he has always stood up and defended the constitution of the United States, even when it often meant that he had to stand all alone.
They intend to send a powerful message to us all. The event is called, “Ron Paul is the Choice of the Troops”. Adam Kokesh has sent out a call to rally together for this event. Adam is a veteran of the Iraqi war and member/co-founder of such groups as: Iraqi Veterans Against the War and Veterans for Ron Paul. He is also the host of a patriot-minded television show called. “Adam vs the Man”.
There are many other similar groups such as: Veterans for Peace, Combat Veterans for Ron Paul, US Army for Ron Paul and the list goes on.
For Americans that just don’t believe or understand that Ron Paul does indeed have overwhelming support from our military, perhaps this is the event to answer that question. They do exist and maybe this is their way of saying to America in a profound way, “Can you hear us now?”
There is an upcoming moneybomb to raise funds for this effort which is scheduled for February 1st which also happens to fall on the 55th wedding anniversary of Ron and Carol Paul. Donations can be made at this site and include in your comment, “Veterans March”. The group is also featuring a video contest to advertise this historic march on the White House, please (see video) for more information about the event.
There is a facebook group that has been set-up here for the latest updates.
