Just in case you were wondering, the organizers of the Million Vet March on the Memorials would like to remind everyone that their cause has no political agenda, and even if you saw Sarah Palin, Senator Ted Cruz, and Senator Mike Lee at this week’s march in Washington, according to march organizers, they were just politicizing the event. Here is what the organization issued on its Facebook page yesterday:
Official Stance of the Million Vet March on the Memorials:
The political agenda put forth by a local organizer in Washington DC yesterday was not in alignment with our message. We feel disheartened that some would seek to hijack the narrative for political gain. The core principle was and remains about all Americans honoring Veterans in a peaceful and apolitical manner. Our love for and our dedication to remains with Veterans, regardless of party affiliation or political leanings.
Feel free to check out the 60+ apolitical and peaceful rallies of the Million Vet March across the nation at our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Million-Vet-March-on-the-Memorials/539097822833735.

Supporters, as we have said all along. We are not affiliated with any political party nor did we accept any donations. Which we could have used, but we didn’t like what we saw that was coming out of Washington; even being courted to become a political action committee which we turned down. Like we said we believe in transparency. Check out this behind-the-scenes “fiscal statement” of our expenses. This is what is meant by GRASSROOTS. And please don’t question our motive for a #Starbucks Macchiato or a box of doughnuts. There are some things you just can’t live without. Go #1MVetMarch.
