Washington, DC – -(Ammoland.com)- Starting Wednesday, October 16 2013, Oath Keepers is establishing a rotating “Honor Guard” of volunteer veterans and concerned Americans at the WWII Memorial, to ensure that WWII vets can get in to pay their respects to their fallen brothers in arms.
They risked all, in combat, to stop arbitrary, oppressive governments over there. We need to step up and keep them from being victimized by arbitrary, oppressive government here. Let’s get it done!
First Honor Guard Shift: Wed., October 16 to Sunday, October 20
Every Day, Dawn till Dusk (you pick the day(s) you can serve)
World War II Memorial, Washington D.C. (and other D.C. area war memorials, if we have enough volunteers)
Oath Keepers will take the first shift of this rotating standing Honor Guard, from dawn to dusk each day, from Wednesday, October 16 2013, through Sunday, October 20 2013. All veterans, and all concerned Americans, are invited to join us in this vigil.
We also call on other veterans groups to commit to taking the next shift, starting Monday morning, October 21 2013, so we can maintain an unbroken Honor Guard, dawn till dusk, for as long as this Shutdown lasts. Please contact us if you are part of a veterans group that can take over on Monday, or thereafter, and please put “Group Volunteering to Take Over Honor Guard,” in subject line.
World War II Airborne combat veteran Warenn (Renn) Bodeker, from Plains, Montana, will be leading the Oath Keepers standing guard Wednesday at the WWII Memorial.
Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of currently serving military, reserves, National Guard, veterans, Peace Officers, and Fire Fighters who will fulfill the Oath we swore, with the support of like minded citizens who take an Oath to stand with us, to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God. Our Oath is to the Constitution. Visit: www.oathkeepers.org
