Many people are aware of the Band of Mothers and the exemplary work they do on behalf of our troops. In sum, they are, first and foremost, mothers. They are also mothers who happen to be activists with an easy-to-understand mission: To support America’s warriors. The Band of Mothers conducts postcard campaigns, they write letters, they rally, and they show up in support of our troops when our troops are being attacked by anti-military goons like Code Pink, ANSWER, SDS, and IVAW.
[To read some of the antics of the professional anti-military goons, read here and here.]
This weekend, the Band of Mothers will be in Washington, DC supporting our Wounded Warriors at Walter Reed (tonight, from 6:45 to 9:30 pm) and our troops at Freedom Plaza (Saturday).
While details are below the fold, the professional anti-military protesters are expected to be out demonstrating against our troops. If you are in the area, please take some time to show your support for our troops (and bring a camera).
