      Saint James, NY

Our soldiers have fought for almost a decade based on the oath he/she made to defend this country. They have received the accolades of President Obama, the Iraqi people, and the American people. We believe that they have earned the honor of marching through the Canyon of Heroes, NYC. We want to welcome them home and celebrate their return!

    1. Hi Everyone! This week has been very exciting for us!

      Kelly Lanzon
      Petition Organizer

      We were on 1360am "Veteran's Weekly Forum" discussing the parade with Rich and David. The show went very well. We also learned that Media, Pennsylvania is planning a Welcome Home parade for the vets in the area. We want to applaud Media for planning this parade!

      We also launched a new web page. Since facebook has had a host of issues with their fan counter and there is no one to resolve it, Scot and I decided to also launch a web page to keep everyone updated on developments regarding the parade and other vet issues. Please go visit our page, send us feedback on what you would like to see on the page.

      Thank You to all our veterans and their families!
