Today was the day.
Pete and I went down to the Capitol reflecting pool today. My estimate was there was well over a thousand people.
The march down to Lafeyette Square extended from the Capitol to the Washington Monument.
San Diego, Seattle and NYC attendees numbered in the thousands.
While it was interesting to watch (we're not much for protesting) it really isn't the one issue that deeply troubles me.
This is the one that sickens me. It is a disgraceful and shameful policy. Luckily, this joke of a policy is short-lived, as President-Elect Obama will soon begin to set the wheels in motion to end this disgraceful wound in our country's military history.
The more I think about it, the angrier I become, and I'm sure close to 13 thousand soldiers agree with me.
A joke, plain and simple.
