    Well guys most of you know I am an former Marine. The Vets here at work are talking about having a rally to support or troops and I am interested in knowing if anyone would be up for it. If we can orginize enough guys we could meet on central and caravan down to Wesley Bolin plaza. Hell there is talk of informing the news media. Let me know guys and I will try and figure it out. /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    Well the date thats been talked about is March 29 at 8:00am. There's was talk that there is a parking lot on the SW corner of Indianschool and central. Meeting there and then down to wesley bolin. Some Vietnam Vets are planning on attending and we are going to post this on the AZVJC board also. Let me know guys if you can make it. This is Rally is for the troops not if you are for the war or against it but for the men and women over there doing their jobs. I am going to try and get the video camera out and video it and video people with messages for the troops and send it to some friends that are fighting over there. Just to let them know.

    I'm in, as long as I can remember to wake up that early*... heck, with luck, I'll have Burbanzilla re-wired, and be able to come out with flag flying high on the roof. I don't think anyone's seen burbanzilla since before I put windows in it ( except you marv...) and I'm pretty sure no one's seen it since I `painted' it green.

    *(might be working graveyard, which would mean I'd already be up... )

    Thanks Damon and Marv /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif What did the media have to say? Not much I'm sure, seems like all they care about is the flag burners /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
