A Gathering of Eagles - March 22, 2007
Washington, D.C.

Our numbers were between 25,000 and 30,000; the "Other" side mounted between 5,000 and 10,000.  There was a large number of Riders from all over the country there representing many different military based groups.  The Legion Riders were VERY well represented as we met Riders from Kentucky, Georgia, Mew Mexico, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Illinois, from all of the Mid-Atlantic, and so many more areas. 

I guess the only thing I can say is, by the silence of the media, the pro troop group (that would be us) had a bigger impact on the day than the other side.  We didn't get into fights, we didn't destroy anything, the Police Officers talked to us and we to them, and we were peaceful.  Who'd a thought????????????  This doesn't mean that we weren't heard!
