Once again, the great folks at Move America Forward are stepping up to the plate and planning another cross-country caravan to stand up to the voices calling for surrender in Iraq.
From MAF Press Release:
"Supporters of Operation Iraqi Freedom will conduct a nationwide caravan along with more than 2-dozen rallies calling for continued support of U.S. troops based in Iraq in the days leading up to General David Petraeus September 15th report to Congress.
From September 3, 2007 through September 15, 2007 the nation’s largest grassroots, pro-troop organization, Move America Forward will lead thousands of supporters in a cross-country effort called the “FIGHT FOR VICTORY TOUR.”
“We’ll launch the cross-country caravan Monday, September 3rd with rallies outside the offices of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in Nevada and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in California,” said Melanie Morgan, Chairman of Move America Forward.
“The caravan will then continue across the nation until we reach Washington, D.C. for a giant pro-troop rally on September 15th – the day that General David Petraeus, the U.S. Commanding General in Iraq, delivers his report on ‘The Surge’ to Congress,” Morgan said.
“During the cross-country caravan we will stop and conduct pro-troop rallies that will be attended by thousands upon thousands of patriotic Americans who believe that our leaders cannot be allowed to undercut our troops who are bravely serving on the frontlines of the war against Islamic jihadism,” said Robert Dixon, Executive Director of Move America Forward.
The current schedule for the caravan includes pro-troop rally stops in more than 2 DOZEN cities across America including: Carson City, NV - Sacramento, CA - San Francisco, CA – Modesto, CA - Fresno, CA - Los Angeles, CA - San Diego, CA - Yuma, AZ - Phoenix, AZ - Tucson, AZ - Las Cruces, NM - El Paso, TX - San Antonio, TX - Waco, TX - Crawford, TX - Dallas, TX - Oklahoma City, OK - Wichita, KS - Kansas City, MO - Des Moines, IA - Cedar Rapids, IA - Chicago, IL - Indianapolis, IN - Cincinnati, OH - Columbus, OH – Pittsburgh, PA - Washington D.C."
The itinerary for the "Fight For Victory" tour consists of stops in Sacramento and San Francisco on Labor Day, September 3rd. The San Francisco event is scheduled for 5:15 p.m. I'm planning to be among those in attendance.
Please be there too. Our troops need us now more than ever.
