Honk if you support our troops.

The sign said, “Honk if U support troops,” and they did.  June 10th was a hot summer day.  The temperature at noon was 88 degrees heading to a high of 93 with lots of humidity.  Gathered at the foot of Monument Terrace in downtown Lynchburg was a group of citizens that were there to show their support to our men and women in uniform.   There were probably a lot of other places where these men and women could have been (anywhere that is air-conditioned for example) but instead they were gathered to show support for our troops.  A month earlier we had showers on Friday and several months earlier it was cold, windy and snowing, but these men and women are out there every Friday showing their support of our armed forces.  In fact, this was the 496th consecutive Friday that they were there (that’s over 9 ½ years)!

On Friday July 8, 2011 it will be the 500th consecutive Friday that a group of mostly former military personnel and their families will have been demonstrating their support for our troops and showing their patriotism.  Freedom isn’t free and we owe  it to our troops, (both active duty and retired) to let them know how much we appreciate the sacrifices that they and their families have had to endure so that we can enjoy our way of life.

Please join the regulars and show up on July 8th from noon to 1:00pm to support our troops and yes, as you drive by, please honk to show your support.

The Carriage House Inn Bed and Breakfast and it’s staff want to say thanks to our troops and those that support the work they do.
