Oath Keepers Establishing Rotating Honor Guard to Ensure WWII Veterans’ Access to Their Memorial

First Honor Guard Shift:
Wed., October 16 to Sunday, October 20
Every Day, Dawn till Dusk (you pick the day(s) you can serve)

World War II Memorial, Washington D.C. (and other D.C. area war memorials, if we have enough volunteers)

To Volunteer, RSVP by posting a comment to the article posted on Oathkeepers.org.

In yet another intolerable act, the Obama Administration has ordered the barricades back up at the World War II memorial, even after angry veterans, Oath Keepers, and dedicated citizens tore down the barricades at the World War II memorial on Sunday, and dumped them at the White House gates.

Clearly, Obama thinks that what happened over the weekend was a mere flash in the pan, and now he can get back to his perverse, calculated, vindictive insult to our WWII veterans, by yet again shutting down their memorial. We need to prove him wrong.

On Sunday, the veterans made sure the Memorial was open to the WWII vets, and many Oath Keepers were there, directly helping. There were no Honor Flights on Monday, and on Tuesday there will be another mass protest by The Military Coalition, so, they have Tuesday covered. But our concern is that on Wednesday, and thereafter, when the crowds and cameras are gone, the barricades will go back up yet again, as they did today. There are Honor Flights scheduled for everyday this week, and those WWII veterans need to be guaranteed access too.

Therefore, starting Wednesday, October 16, Oath Keepers is establishing a rotating “Honor Guard” of volunteer veterans and concerned Americans at the WWII Memorial, to ensure that WWII vets can get in to pay their respects to their fallen brothers in arms. They risked all, in combat, to stop arbitrary, oppressive governments over there. We need to step up and keep them from being victimized by arbitrary, oppressive government here. Let’s get it done!

Oath Keepers will take the first shift of this rotating standing Honor Guard, from dawn to dusk each day, from Wednesday, October 16, through Sunday, October 20. All veterans, and all concerned Americans, are invited to join us in this vigil.

We also call on other veterans groups to commit to taking the next shift, starting Monday morning, October 21, so we can maintain an unbroken Honor Guard, dawn till dusk, for as long as this Shutdown lasts. Please contact us if you are part of a veterans group that can take over on Monday, or thereafter, and please put “Group Volunteering to Take Over Honor Guard,” in subject line.

World War II Airborne combat veteran Warenn (Renn) Bodeker, from Plains, Montana, will be leading the Oath Keepers standing guard Wednesday at the WWII Memorial.

On February 23, 1945, Renn, along with his brother paratroopers of Co. B, 511th Parachute Infantry Regiment, parachuted in at dawn’s early light, 40 kilometers behind enemy lines, into the Los Banos prison camp and rescued 2,100 prisoners of war – men, women, and children – from their brutal Imperial Japanese guards, before those guards could slaughter them, as they had planned (read more about Renn, and that daring rescue, here).

Now Renn will be making one last “jump” behind enemy lines, this time into Washington D.C., with bolt-cutters in hand, to make sure his brother WWII veterans can continue to get into their memorial.

    Russia Declares ‘Holy War’ On Islamic State

    The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.”

    According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department,

    The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches. Muslims are suffering no less.

    This is not a pretext to justify intervention in Syria.

    Oregon Shooting – When Tragedy Happens Let’s Focus On The Cause And Not The Tools Used

    While the blood was still dripping from those martyrs who, in front of an evil man armed with a gun, asked them if they were Christians and those strong in the faith said they were. He shot them in the head. While those who were lost or weak said nothing he spared their lives and shot them in their legs.

    Barrack Hussein Obama angrily ran to the cameras to use this opportunity to say that guns being in the hands of the law-abiding Americans is the problem, and we need to restrict the 2nd amendment to spare the lives of “we the people.”

    This is nuts; guns do not kill people, people kill people! You can test this fact in your own home right now. (Do not worry no one will get hurt).

    Gun Free Zones Are Killing Zones

    How did you feel when you heard of the shootings in Oregon this week? Was the first thing that came to your mind the thought that if we only had stricter gun control legislation, this kind of tragedy could have been prevented?

    If you listened to idiotic liberals, like President Barack “Insane” Obama, you might believe that. It is my contention that liberalism is a mental disorder based on the rejection of God and His principles, and extreme irresponsibility.

    What type of Republican Leader do you want in 2015?

    As we look at elections coming up quickly in 2015, as well as the very important 2016 election cycle, what type of “Republican” leaders do you want to shape the future of your county and country?

    Do you ever wonder why it is that the current crop of Republicans are not declaring, at every media interview, “These ills have been brought to you by the Democrat Party!” when speaking of Obamacare, the hordes of immigrants being allowed to destroy our country, the Iranian nuclear treaty, the “Black Lives Matter” racial division rhetoric, the attack on the defense of marriage, the 94 million Americans not currently in the work force,

    Child protection services Sentences Baby To Death ON 9/11/2015

    Child protection services should be self-explanatory based on the simplicity of its name. But they are doing exactly opposite of their name in many places. Wynne, Arkansas is one such place.

    A baby has been sentenced to death and will be executed on Friday, September 11, 2015 and Arkansas Department of HUMAN SERVICES (DHS) – Division of Children and Family Services- Central Office will facilitate the delivery of the baby’s 10-year-old to the abortion clinic.

    On August 29, 2015 20-year-old Justin Smith was arrested and charged with three counts of rape and one count of endangering the welfare of a minor. His “alleged” victim is a 10-year-old.
