Excuse me?? Since when does the PENTAGON sponsor freakin' parades
WASHINGTON, Aug. 9, 2005
The Defense Department today announced the first "America Supports You Freedom Walk" to honor the victims of 9/11 and America's military personnel, as well as to celebrate freedom.
The Freedom Walk will begin at 10 a.m. Sept. 11 in the Pentagon South parking lot, near the site where the airliner crashed into the Pentagon on 9/11. The walk route will consist of a two-mile trek through Arlington National Cemetery, over the Potomac River, and will end by the reflecting pool on the National Mall, where a free concert featuring country music star Clint Black will take place.
"I am proud and honored to be part of the America Supports You Freedom Walk to honor the victims of 9/11 and to support our men and women in uniform," Black said.
Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld made the announcement today at the Pentagon.
Doesn't Rumsfeld and the Pentagon have other going concerns? ... like in IRAQ!
I think the title of the parade could be revised a bit to reflect better it's intent. Maybe it should read:
'Freedom Walk' to Celebrate 9/11, Commemorate Freedom
Rather than the other way around.
