Their words are, "We want to give something back to the brave men and women who served, and are serving, in the armed forces." Jackie Maye gives them an opportunity to share their tribute.

"...we should remember England's Prime Minister Tony Blair's
words during a recent interview. When asked by one of his
Parliament members why he believes so much in America, he said: "A
simple way to take measure of a country is to look at how many want
in... And how many want out." Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you:
1. Jesus Christ
2. The American G. I.
One died for your soul, the other for your freedom."
"Congressmen who willfully take actions during wartime that damage
morale, and undermine the military are saboteurs and should be arrested,
exiled or hanged." ~ President Abraham Lincoln

MOVE AMERICA FORWARD, 3/25/07|
Most of the Klamath Basiin was
settled by veterans, whose parents and grandparents were veterans,
and whose children and grandchildren are veterans. They believe in
what they did not only in settling our basin and growing food, but
also in their service in the wars to defend freedom.
Some Americans have formed a group
to defend and honor our country and our veterans.
They sent us the latest anti-war,
anti veteran, and anti-American protest.
