A Gathering of Eagles - March 22, 2007
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!
