The Eagles will defend the rights of those protesting the war. That is what we veterans do: Defend the Constitution.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
The Eagles will defend our memorials from vandals: "the right of the people to peaceably assemble" does not include damaging property or injuring people.
Here's to a PEACEFUL and POLITE
ST PATRICK'S DAY
