On the 21st day of May (Armed Forces Day), The 2nd National Armed Forces FreedomRide will happen again. There are 30+ States & 70 Coordinators that are participating in the FreedomRide and more expected. We need this to spread Nation Wide, with a showing of support for all Armed Forces, our Troops, the KIA, MIA, POW and all that still stand to Serve our Country. To many lives have repeatedly paid the price through the years of Battles and in War, by protecting our Security and giving us our Freedom. FreedomRide is NOT about supporting the battles of war!! FreedomRide is about supporting those that have fought those battles! We may not agree with the reason or cause of these battles in which they fight, but it is vital that we stand proudly, show the Pride and Support we hold for all these brave men and women, that have Served our Country, and those that still Bravely stand to Serve. We must continue to hold Hope and wait for them to return home after the battle is fought. In joining the Freedom Ride, we will all present them with a showing of Support that they so rightly deserve to feel and see. Show Support by lining the streets, sidewalks, along the highways, or in the privacy of their own lawns to waves these Flags too with their own showing of Support. All States involved and Patrons will Fly their Flags~that will wave with the Pride and Support they hold in their hearts for all and their family's.
I am attaching a flyer for you to print and pass out, please spread the word to everyone and encourage them to help spread the word
