A Tribute to the Loyal Revolutionaries of
"Save Our Veterans Land."
Today, The Veterans Revolution held our 49th consecutive Sunday Rally
to protest against the land grabbing of this sacred land that was
specifically deed "to be permanently maintained as a
National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers.
A BIG Thanks to Steve Palmer, our loyal 86 year-old, WW II Veteran who drives every Sunday from Panorama City in the Valley, 80 year-old Korean War Veteran Newt Young (Torrance), 78 year-old Korean War Veteran Larry Cardenas (Santa Monica) and his 91 year-old Veteran watchdog, "Lencha," 75 year-old Korean War Veteran George Jacobs (San Fernando Valley), 80 year-old Veteran widow Bettina Michaels (Brentwood), and super loyal Navy Veteran Nora Ward of Brentwood and Gloria Manciocchi, a Loyal Patriot and Revolutionary who drives from Sylmar in the San Fernando Valley.
And a BIG Thanks to Rusty Rustan, a disabled Vietnam War Veteran who drove all the way from Huntington Beach in Orange County to join today's Sunday Rally.
Just wondering where the younger Veterans are who live in West Los Angeles and other areas of L.A.?
It's important to pass on some great information from Bob Handy, chairman of Veterans United For Truth, and chairman of the Veterans Caucus of the California Democratic Party. Bob, a 76 year-old Korean and Vietnam War Veteran who lives in Santa Barbara, has been working tirelessly to get more endorsements for the "Resolution to Protect a Sacred Trust.
In addition to so many bi-partisan supporting organizations and individuals, Bob just notified me today that the "Progressive Democrats of Los Angeles" have endorsed the Resolution.
The "San Fernando Valley Republican Club" has endorsed a Resolution that shows there is enormous bi-partisan support from political organizations and Veterans Organizations, including the California American Legion, The G.I. Forum of California, the National Veterans Coalition, Veterans United For Truth, AMVETS Post 113 of Irwindale, the Gathering of Eagles, and many more.
Next Sunday, there will be no accepted excuses, either legitimate or fabricated. This a "must attend" as March 1st will be Veterans Appreciation Day and the Celebration of the 121st Anniversary of the Grand Deed of 1888, held on the "Great Lawn."
This is a Patriotic Tribute to the Founding Family, John P. Jones and Arcadia de Baker who were so generous and thoughtful to give this land exclusively to Veterans in perpetuity.
The Celebration will be in honor of General Eric K. Shinseki, the newly appointed Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs in Washington, D.C.
BRING YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY.
WEAR YOUR VETERAN AND MILITARY BEST!
BE PROUD YOU ARE A VETERAN,
AND BE PROUD OF OUR NATIONAL HOME.
SHOW YOUR RESPECT TO
JOHN P. JONES AND ARCADIA DE BAKER.
NEXT SUNDAY, BE THERE!!
ON THE "GREAT LAWN" OF
THE NATIONAL VETERANS HOME
