Patriotic Americans come together every Saturday in West Chester to show the troops and their families that we are behind them and want them to come home with victory and honor. At the end we sing the National Anthem, recite the Pledge of Allegiance, and pray for our Troops protection and success. We had a huge turnout and another fantastic uplifting experience. Thanks to all “The Sheepdogs” who make it happen!
Among the many highlights at the rally were the 5 children who came to show how much they love and repect our men and women in uniform.
These patriotic kids are Maria, Billy, Kacie, Gaige, and Tailyr. They raised our spirits with their beaming faces and charm.
Bob and Kevin (home from Kuwait) wave the Flag. Notice: in the background, we always have an Israeli flag at our rallies. Israel is our best ally in the Middle East and is defending itself from muslim terrorists who launch rockets from the Gaza into Israel, every day. Too bad the “peace” protestors don’t demand that Hamas and Hezballah terrorists stop attacking innocent civilians in Israel.
Three Vietnam Vets stand up to support the Troops.
Two Irish ladies and a blogger (Skye) stand behind our Armed Forces.
Grease, John, Rich, Joe, and Bob -form a Wall of Red, White, and Blue.
Love this sign! Thanks to the Rich and Steve (above) for bringing it.
The smiling faces of patriotic kids.
The signs speak for themselves. Doc’s poster shows the VetForPeace reps talking in Venezuala with press and Hugo Chavez.
Decent Americans proudly support America those who defend her.
A couple soldiers stop by on their way to their National Guard training. We are always thrilled and honored to have our “Greatest Patriots” stop by to say hello and thanks for the support.
Carl, President of the “Delco Cruisers” came by to say “Thanks for coming to our ‘Salute The Troops’ event” and surprised us with an unexpected donation. We loved being a part of “Salute The Troops” and look forward to doing more events with the Delco Cruisers.
Of course, no rally would be complete without the “peace” protestors on the other side of the street, doing their best to demoralize our troops and undermine their efforts. They use the term “Peace Vigils” but they are used by these extremists to make political points and statements that prolong war.
The “Vets For Peace” come from Philadelphia. They encourage our troops to disobey orders and will give them assistance and legal advice if they do. They also seek vets to be part of the IVAW – a group that went to Washington to testify that our troops commit atrocities.
Prior to our arrival, the above is what our troops (and their families) had to see every week in West Chester. These protestors have been hurting our troops and dividing our town and country every weekend for six years. Maybe one day they will practice what they preach and stop their war against patriotic Americans who disagree with them and want to show support and stand behind our troops who are sent into harm’s way to protect our freedoms and rights.
