Subject: Colonel David Hackworth "Reporting as Ordered" through the Pearly Gates of Heaven


When I attempted to pray to God, it was intercepted by the Marine Guards at the Pearly Gates.

According to the Marines at the gate, Colonel Hackworth left a message on his way into heaven, for us veterans.

This could be a rumor, but… it is coming from the Marine Detachment above, and I expect, this may be the Colonel’s wish?

The Colonel has instructed us veterans that we need to take his place in fighting the military/lawmaker bureaucracy. He said that, we veterans are entitled to our promised benefits and that the Government should keep its promises, to all veterans.

The Colonel said that the truth shall win ... attack, attack, attack!" “March to Washington DC on 8 June, 2005” there is truth to be secured and a moral high-ground to be taken.

I’m sure the Colonel’s spirit, along with all of our fallen veterans’ sprits, will be marching right next to us.

PS – Oh, the guards at the gate said that emailing each other back and forth is not going to cut it. They said how the hell does anyone know about our issues unless we get it out to the public? We need to get off our butts and put them into action!
