“Resolve to Win” – Va. American Legion and North Carolina VFW – An Amazing “16” Day Walk to D.C. in Support of Our Troops!
I want to pass along an email I just received. The gentleman who wrote the email did such a great job, I will simply let you read his words. Please read the email, then please offer your support.
On March 1, 2008 a group of Veterans set off from the NC/SC line on a 16 day mission to walk to Washington, DC to raise support for our troops, the Military leadership, the mission and the “Resolve to Win”. It is now in its 11 th day.
The effort “Resolve to Win” is being co-chaired by the American Legion from Virginia and the VFW from North Carolina. In addition it has gained the support of the Gathering of Eagles, Eagles UP, Patriot Guard, Rolling Thunder and the Combat Infantry Association amongst others.
We had expected very little support from the Mainstream media, but what is most disturbing is the lack of support from the Milblogging Community. We reached out to all the “big” Milblogging sites with a request for assistance in getting the word out. The silence from the Milblog Community has been deafening. [my emphasis]
Please visit their blog at: Resolve to Win or google “resolve to win” to find out more about this heroic endeavor.
It would be nice if 1,000’s of supporters were there in DC to welcome them.
What would be even nicer is if our Military Personnel and their Families could become aware of the gesture of love and support being extended to them through this journey. [emphasis mine]
Please consider letting everyone know in anyway you can.
Yours in Service,
