This is a "Call To Arms" Update with more specifics. Its long but will detail who were going to hook up with and other important details. PLEASE READ AND PASS ON TO ALL YOU KNOW AGAIN.......THANKS............This is again, from Joel Kernodle, President of the 1st Marine Division Association, Indiana Chapter.

HEAR YE..........HEAR YE";..................UPDATE 12/30/02

This may seem disjointed, but things are coming to me by e-mail and phone fast and furious, so bear with me please.

Since my original letter "HEAR YE.......HEAR YE...........A CALL TO ARMS", I have spent a tremendous amount of time corresponding with several helpful allies, and garnering information that is either essential or informative regarding the upcoming event 1/18/03 in D.C.

After consideration of the organizations that would prove most beneficial to our cause, I have determined the most efficient means of getting ourselves up-to-speed on our enemy and the workings of Washington D.C. is to enlist as our primary ally , FreeRepublic.

Most of the very-helpful info I have gotten has been from lengthy conversations with Raoul and Kristinn Taylor of that organization. They have been "in the face" of these leftist-radical protesters at all of their D.C. "events", going back to just after 9/11. They also are very familiar with the authorities in D.C. Not only that, they are adept at getting things done that have to be done to be "kosher" with the authorities there, they are knowledgeable of press/media contacts [having helped me there; I have the contacts e-mail addys AND phone #s now], and they will be there in D.C. as our allies to help us avoid making any missteps. I am in awe of both our luck finding them and their D.C. acumen.

OK..............1st to dispel some myths; [1] While itís true the radicals can tie up the rights to a monument or piece of ground there with the proper permit, THAT CANNOT BE DONE WITH THE WALL, IWO JIMA, OR ARLINGTON NATIONAL CEMETARY!!!! Those places are exempt and protected from that! [2] The radicals did NOT handle or touch or use for their propaganda The Wall in a recent protest . They did make statements about what Vietnam vets would wish, but were not at The Wall. There were people on OUR side at the Wall. Somehow, the two got "melded"[3] the radicals are mustering on the west side of THE CAPITOL!!!!....................NOT the White House, at 1100 1/18.

I encourage each and every one of you to go to a FreeRepublic website, most from www.freerepublic.com <http://www.freerepublic.com> , and view the material. You will get an informative view of what "protesting" in D.C., surely the Protest Capital of the world, is all about. Youíll get the flavor and feel, and also you will see the delicious sense of humor the Free Republic guys and gals have. Boy, are they a thorn in the side of the leftists!!!!

PERMITS AND PROTOCOL:.................Very important! Washington D.C. and the area, including Arlington, has more cops per capita than anywhere else on earth. DO NOT...........I REPEAT........DO NOT believe a force of thousands cannot be physically dealt with by the security forces there!!!. Free Republic folks tell me there are upwards of a dozen police forces there, numbering in the thousands, and they have very, very sophisticated equipment, funding, training and the backup of federal forces and FBI, CIA, and Secret Service inter-agency backup numbering in the many thousands too. There are many thousands of active duty armed forces within minutes of any site there always ready to assist.

I will not expound further on the above; rather.........I will tell you these forces are in good graces with the Free Republic people, and the commanding officers are well known to their people and vice-versa. This is essential to us, as these forces would not otherwise know what to expect from "newcomers" to the protest scene like a large group of Vietnam vets whose motives would be a mystery to the police.


Now, having said that, you may believe, as I originally did, that we all can go as individuals, or as very small groups, but fellas, THAT AINíT GONNA WORK, because itís been tried a bazillion times before. Circumvention intent is NOT a funny thing to the security agencies there.

PERMITS AND PROTOCOL . We want to stay in the best of graces with the gendarmes. It usually takes 30 days to get a permit, so we would have had a problem there. The second and third problems might have been (as required normally) what number would we state and who is our organization?

We will be OK and in compliance on all counts, thanks to FreeRepublic. They are going to be in touch with the proper police commander and the permit people they know, and will take care of this for us, and explain to the agencies that we are with them, not as FreeRepublic people, or "Freepers" as they are known, but as M.O.V.E. O.U.T.!. Our numbers will of course not be known............and I stated I have no idea whether there will be 10 of us or 10,000!

I repeat, FreeRepublic people are to get the permits for us. The intent at this time, per Mr. Taylor, is to get the permit for our muster at the closest permitable area to the Wall and the Brothers of Nam statue. Taylor sees no problem with the commanderís being informed we have good intentions, in keeping with Free Republic, and we do not know the numbers because this is the first gathering, and there is no formal "organization"; that nearly everyone there is actually an individual who just got "the word". I will make a short announcement as close to 0900 as possible, and then we will move to the permitted area adjacent, where we can finalize our muster and move on at will.

PART TWO: <br />

ROUTE................As stated , the muster point for the leftists will be on the west side of The Capitol at 1100. From there, they will proceed on Independence Ave., east to...

Teamwork in abundance, with peace in our heart,

Striving stronger than ever, while loved ones are apart.

Lives at stake, this is no game,

I will fight to the death, and do so without shame.

Each day an eternity, with no end in sight,

We are behind you, and support you a nations delight.

We pray for your return, welcome you with pride,

We will recognize all heroes, and mourn those who died.

Every life that is lost, is a commitment thats true,

They did it for us, and the RED, WHITE and BLUE

Deep within this Marine, the hatred I have for you has no cure,
you ran and let My Country down, that's for sure....
I lived in the jungle where day after day it was death, blood, sweat and tears,
you really didn't care about me in Vietnam, for you had no fears...
By day and night you'd protest, party, laugh and play,
while back in Vietnam, "Tom's been killed" I'd hear them say...
As a Marine I stand proud and tall, from My country, I'd never run,
even though I know Vietnam is not a game, nor is it fun...
I made alot of friends in Vietnam..Tom, Bill, Gunner and Joe,
but to visit them now, to Arlington National Cemetary I must go...
One day I stood in silence, overlooking the graves of all who died,
they had served their country with Honor, Dignity and Pride...
I cried tears one rainy day in Vietnam until I couldn't see,
trying to comfort my dying friend, he said to me, "Bye Al, remember me"...
My close friend had died for his country with Pride and without shame,
while you went to Canada thinking this was all a game...
Never shall I consider forgiving you for running away,
to me, you are a coward and a disgrace to My Country is all I can say...
The hatred embedded within me toward cowards like you,
will never be forgotten within me, no matter what you say or do...
America, is My Country, and it's the freedom that I enjoy and love,
and I will proudly serve My Country again if push comes to shove...
To avoid the Draft, you deserted My Country to do nothing but hide,
while American Patriots fight in Vietnam, and many have died...
You treated me with great disrespect and dishonor when I came back,
you smoked your weed, called me names, and manners you did lack...
War is hell, and we realize that many good men will die,
It broke my heart to see parents of kids break down and cry...
You don't deserve the freedom we fight to preserve, you ran to hide,
so stay in Canada cowards, and permanently there reside...
This Marine shall never forgive you for running, or forget it,
without shame or guilt, on your grave I shall spit.
"God Bless America and All Its' Veterans
