Virtual March on Washington for Veterans
Stand Up with the DAV for Veterans
Disabled American Veterans
Tue Sep 15 from 9:00 am to 11:00 pm on www.dav.org/VirtualMarch ONLINE ONLY
**This is an ONLINE event. There is NO need to actually travel to Washington**
On Sept. 15, we will make history with the first-ever virtual march for disabled veterans. And we look forward to you taking part.
You won't need to travel to participate. You won't need to spend any money to have your voice heard. You don't even have to be online the day of the march, so no need to check your calendar. The DAV is working to ensure this will be the easiest and most convenient way ever to stand up for veterans.
With this march, you will support those who came back from war missing a limb, paralyzed, unable to see, terribly sick or otherwise disabled. They put their country – our country – before themselves. They gave so much, and now they need you to stand up for them.
There are many issues facing veterans today. The march will highlight those issues and what needs to be done to better the lives of veterans and their families. Together, we will generate greater public awareness and support for strengthening federal policies that provide health care assistance to disabled veterans injured in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as those from prior eras and conflicts.
Please take a moment to show your support for disabled veterans by joining the march today. Simply check "attending" here, and then head over to http://dav.org/virtualmarch and register. We will never share your information with or sell it to anyone, nor will we use it to solicit donations.
On the day of the march, there will be video messages from veterans, family members, veterans' advocates, lawmakers and a few surprises. There will be opportunities to directly interact with those leading efforts to better the lives of veterans. And there will be easy-to-use tools for you to directly contact your representatives in Washington, D.C. If you cannot visit the site the day of the march, don't worry; it will all remain online.
Lastly, after you sign up, please help encourage others to do the same. Post links on your profile, invite all your friends, do the same your other social networks, send e-mails, blog about it, and tell everyone you know. We need to stand up together as a nation and let our voices be heard loud and in unison.
Those who have put their lives on the line for freedom are depending on you.
