Probable Violence on Saint Patrick's Day

Comrades in Arms:

I just now went to the official GATHERING OF EAGLES web site, and according to the latest information, we do indeed face a VERY dangerous situation at the Viet Nam Memorial this coming Saint Patrick's Day.


Folks, this is utterly unbelievable.

The United States Park Police is now granting permission to the anti-war protestors to gather at the Viet Nam Memorial, and completely surround the war veterans.

(Please refer to the map posted at the web site)

Because of their threats to vandalize memorials and attack elderly war veterans, I had thought the anti-war protestors were going to be kept at least two (02) blocks away from ALL war memorials.

At least, that WAS what the United States Park Police had previously indicated.

To make our situation even worse, the portable toilets and emergency medical care are now to be stationed two (02) blocks away (or maybe further - - - I'm a little confused about exactly where).

Folks, some of us Viet Nam veterans have aged (I'm sixty-one years old), and we NEED those toilets close by - - - and for our crowd of thousands, we'll need plenty of them!

Not only that, but with the obvious geriatric concerns, ambulances and paramedics should be standing by at the scene.

Why would the United States Park Police WANT to deliberately instigate a violent confrontation between the anti-war protestors and elderly war veterans?

Is it possible that some official from the United States Park Police has accepted a bribe from a television network, hoping for shocking evening news film of youthful protestors beating up decorated old veterans, and uniformed police beating up both protestors and veterans?

What other scenario makes sense?

This is kind of like the Chicago riots of 1968, huh?

We've got less than one week left.

I sure hope somebody is making some last minute telephone calls.

By the way, I also noticed at the official GATHERING OF EAGLES web site that numerous chartered buses are coming here from all over America, and local hotels are now fully booked for visiting war veterans.

This is going to be one bodacious event!

Gosh, gee whillikers, I sure hope you folks do NOT see me on television.

I really don't want any trouble.

Thank you.
