Posted on Governor Palin’s Facebook page last night:
Todd and I are going to D.C. tomorrow to honor our vets at our war memorials. We had a great time today in NJ rallying for Steve Lonegan with “The Great One” and Tea Party Express!

Palin to Attend ‘Million Vet March’ in DC to Honor ‘Dishonored’ Vets
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin announced that she will travel to Washington, D.C. on Sunday to support and honor the veterans who will be arriving for the “Million Vet March” on the memorials.
Speaking at a rally for New Jersey Republican Senate candidate Steve Lonegan along with Mark Levin on Saturday, Palin denounced the Obama administration for dishonoring veterans by barricading the World War II Memorial during the federal government shutdown. She said it was “heart-wrenching,” “atrocious,” and “not right.”
“We’re going to zip on in to D.C.,” Palin said of herself and her husband Todd. “We’re going to shake hands with those vets who are being dishonored.”
Palin then accused the Obama administration of “using our military as pawns” during the government shutdown with such actions.
Palin said the memorials serve to remind Americans of “the cost to provide for this exceptional nation” and the price Americans have had to pay to fight “against tyranny” and “for liberty.”
Palin noted that the memorials, though they received some federal assistance, were also built with private donations.
“And our government thinks they can shut down our memorials that honor our vets?” Palin said. “For shame.”
Palin has previously urged Obama administration employees to engage in acts of civil disobedience at the “Barrycades.” The “Million Vet March” is being organized by Special Operations Speaks. Veterans will demand that the Obama administration re-open the memorials and urge Congress to pass legislation to forbid the memorials from being closed in future government shutdowns.
Go here to see a video of trucks circling the Beltway yesterday during Day 2 of the trucker protest.
May the voices of all the veterans and other patriots gathered at the Veteran Memorials today be heard from sea to shining sea!
