To the right you will see a link for Defend Michael that takes you to the site his family has arranged to introduce you to Michael Behenna and his story. An email sent this morning indicates the following. Anything you might be able to do would obviously be very, very helpful.
Many of Michael’s supporters have contacted us for additional ways to help. This [motorcycle]rally will aid Michael and the other Leavenworth 10 in creating awareness for those who have not heard their stories.
We envision this Rally to begin in at least the following 12 states; Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, Colorado, Minnesota, Kansas, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Arkansas, and Tennessee, and culminate in Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas. Due to the significance of 9/11 to these soldiers call to duty, we are considering holding the event the weekend before, on Labor Day 9/4/2010. Before we finalize our plans, we would like to know if you would assist in the following areas:
– Help put together the event in Leavenworth
– Help coordinate a state leg of this journey to Leavenworth
– Design and maintenance of a web site
– Help sponsor the event (not necessary to attend)
– Graphic Design (t-shirts, signs, flyers)
– Most importantly – make the ride to Leavenworth (motorcycles and vehicles would be welcome)
Please reply about your interests and we will build a database of who can help us on this event. We are also very interested in your thoughts and ideas about this event! The size of this event is dependent upon those involved and our ability to attract other concerned Patriots. This rally is a way to show these soldiers that we appreciate their unselfish service to our country and they are not forgotten. Defend Michael [firstname.lastname@example.org]
It’s a damned strange thing to be in prison for doing your duty. And there is a reason you hear so very little about it in any media. But if there’s anything you can do – even from a distance – I know it’d mean the world to them. And to me.
