Comrades in Arms:

Here is the OFFICIAL web site for the "Gathering of Eagles" on Saint Patrick's Day, Saturday 17 March 2007, at the Viet Nam Memorial in Washington, D.C.:

Buses loaded with military veterans and their supporters are coming to Washington, D. C. from all over the country in response to the scheduled massive anti-war protest, as the various war memorials are being threatened with possible vandalism, which the veterans are determined to protect.

Here are web sites describing who our enemies are, and revealing some of their tactics:

Here are a couple of nice videos you'll enjoy watching:

I plan on being there.

I reckon I'll take my guitar, with a couple of sandwiches, and a canteen of water, and I'll probably dress up in my Sunday best, with my medals, spurs, Cavalry stetson, and of course, toting my trusty shillelagh.

After all, it IS Saint Patrick's Day!

I hope there's enough portable latrines set up for the thousands of elderly war veterans who are going to be there.

When you get to be our age (Viet Nam veterans), that latrine needs to be kept pretty close by!

Normally, I would never leave my room here at the Soldiers' Home, but fortunately, a couple of old buddies are going, so I'm going along with them.

Isn't it odd that the administration here at the Soldiers' Home won't officially support this effort?

But, that's normal politically correct behavior for career government bureaucrats.

I hope we have nice weather that day.

Thank you.
