West Point – Army Graduation

Gathering of Eagles
Fighting the Insurgency at Home
Action Alert

The domestic insurgents have been protesting outside the West Point graduation ceremonies for years.  They line West Point Highway with flag draped coffins and banners with disgustingly negative messages to demoralize our graduates and their families.  The families of these graduates already have a high anxiety level with their children embarking on a military career in a time of war.  The additional stress is unwelcome and unwanted.

Last year, for the first time, we provided a counterpoint to the insurgents.  We held flags and signs of encouragement for the graduates, our troops and their families.  Our efforts were greatly appreciated.

This Saturday, May 31st, we ask all who are able to come join us in a show of solidarity and support for our new graduates and their families.  We have no prior knowledge of protester activity, but they have been consistent in their protest activity there for so long that it is expected they will be there.

A bonus this year is that the Highland Falls Rotary Club and Chamber of Commerce will be holding a BBQ at Memorial Park so bring the family and friends and enjoy the hospitality of ‘Hometown, USA’.

What: Support Our Graduates and their Families Rally
Where: Memorial Park, Mill Street and West Point Highway, Highland Falls, NY

When: Saturday, May 31, 2008, 7am to 1pm

The early start time is to avoid traffic congestion with family and visitors arriving for the ceremony.
