Under the leadership of Colonel Joe Repya, The Minnesota Support Our Troops Coalition--with the help of Minnesota's American Legion, Disabled American Veterans and Veterans of Foreign Wars--is launching another sign campaign:
At noon on September 1, the anti-war crowd claims they'll have upwards of 50,000 marching from the Minnesota Capitol Building to the Excel Energy Center where the Republican National Convention, at the Excel Energy Center in Saint Paul.
We are asking everyone who supports our men and women in uniform defending America in the War on Terror to line the streets from the Excel Center with our signs. It is our way of being "Minnesota Nice" and wishing these protesters a "nice day in Minnesota." We encourage no discussion or verbal exchange with the demonstrators--only a pleasant "smile!
You can pick up a sign as long as the initial order lasts on Saturday, August 16th, in the parking lot of Stephano's Restaurant, the corner of Highway 13 and Cliff Road (across from Walgreen's) from 12:00 Noon to 3:00 PM. Please arrive early since we are printing a limited number. Your donations will be greatly appreciated and will allow us to print more signs.
