In a sick display of “their version of supporting the troops” MoveOn.org will be protesting the Veterans Day activities sponsored by Vets for Freedom on Veterans Day in Louisville. November 10, 2007. Please read and pass on the following report from the Gathering of Eagles!.
In honor of Veterans Day, Vets for Freedom invites you to attend a Tribute to Veterans this Saturday, November 10 th in Louisville at 3 pm. The event will be held at 16300 Eastwood Cutoff Road, Louisville KY.
This is a fantastic opportunity to support our troops and to honor their sacrifice.
Unfortunately, Moveon.org is going to protest this fantastic tribute to American veterans. Please forward this invite to other friends or neighbors who would be interested in supporting our troops and honoring their sacrifices.
Here is an example of the Moveon.org protesters’ plan for targeting a tribute to our nation’s veterans:

Subject: PLEASE READ: Pro-war town hall rally coming to Louisville
Dear LPAC and Iraq Campaign Supporters,
On Saturday November 10th, Vets for Freedom & Vets for Victory will host a pro-war “town hall rally” in Louisville. These groups are attempting to portray to local and national media that Kentuckians actually support the Iraq War and Senator McConnell’s support of the White House Iraq policies.
On October 17, Vets for Freedom hosted a “town hall rally” in Walton, KY. While the group hoped to show pro-war results in a conservative area of the Commonwealth, the weak turnout of pro-war citizens and the strong showing of anti-war veterans did not not allow them to achieve their goal. Vets for Freedom is trying very hard to change that reality. Last week they announced an aggressive national recruitment drive and a second town hall in KY with guest speaker Erwin Roberts, a pro-war Republican candidate for Rep. John Yarmuth’s seat.
In response, on Saturday November 10, the Iraq Campaign needs you to join us as we establish a strong and respectful presence at their next “town hall rally”. Vets For Freedom & Vets for Victory are coming to our town and we need to again prove to them and the media that the majority of Kentuckians do NOT support an endless, reckless war in Iraq… or Iran!
They are reacting to the overwhelming success of the KY Iraq Summer & Iraq Campaign… Will you help us continue to succeed?
Please join us on:
Saturday, November 10 3pm-5pm
Eastwood Community Center
16300 Eastwood Cutoff Road
Louisville KY 40245
This meeting should be of very high importance to all of us who do not support the reckless, endless war in Iraq!
If you have any questions or would like to learn more about these events, please feel free to call/email Sara (her contact info is listed below).
See you on Saturday Nov. 10!
All the best,
Sara, Shawn & Aniello

Let’s show these anti-American people that Veterans Day is sacred–and not something for them to desecrate.
