I read about this a few years ago about my fellow Veterans.
"Save Our Veterans Land."
"I, __________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic."
There is no duration defined in the Oath
How much injustice and tyranny are we willing to take before the government and their respective agents and useful idiots carry us off in chains to concentration camps and gas ovens?
Don't get me started on that F-ing C*nt Senator Diane Feinstein.
...that is deeded to be permanently maintained as a national home for veterans, and the oil money isn't even going to the veterans or for expenses to maintain this place?
"Today's soldiers are tomorrow's veterans." And what a sad day that will be.
"If you want something you've never had before, you have to do something you've never done before." Debra Medina
comment on. So sad.
"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know Peace." - Jimi Hendrix
Retired Marine Corps Major General Smedley Butler, one of the most popular military figures of the time, visited their camp to back the effort and encourage them.
Started out in Portland, Oregon, too!
Unfortunately, the violent destruction of the Bonus Army's
encampment turned out to be a big career boost for Douglas
MacArthur and Patton - who implemented it and Franklin Roosevelt
who claimed to be shocked by it. Hard to say if he was serious or
not, but it pretty much ensured his election.

During the military operation, Major Dwight D. Eisenhower, later the 34th President of the United States, served as one of MacArthur's junior aides. Believing it wrong for the Army's highest-ranking officer to lead an action against fellow American war veterans, he strongly advised MacArthur against taking any public role: "I told that dumb son-of-a-b_itch not to go down there," he said later. "I told him it was no place for the Chief of Staff."
February 20 - Veterans Support Ron Paul, March on the White House - Approximately 320 - 558 Veterans and active duty Veterans Marched, with a double duce truck vehicle carrying Disabled Veterans including, one of the last WW2, battle of the bulge Veterans, with another 1500 not formally in the march supporting behind the march. Upon arriving at the White House, the veterans and active military service members turned their backs to symbolically signify that they didn’t condone all these unconstitutional wars. There was an eight-minute hand salute for every active duty military member who had committed suicide under Obama (one second for each life taken: approximately 480). These numbers are higher than they have ever been, especially when you include veterans. There were also 21 minutes of silence observed for those fallen in battle (one second for each life lost: approximately 1,260). There was a rally for 2 hours before the march at the Washington Memorial and an 6 hour after party at the rock n' roll hotel.
