Move America Forward invites you to join us as we launch a national caravan from California (leaving on Thursday, March 8, 2007) to Washington, D.C. (for a giant pro-troop rally on Saturday March 17, 2007).
Join us for the entire caravan, or for just part of the route or attend one of our patriotic pro-troop rallies across the nation. At each stop we're asking participants to bring an American Flag (homemade or store-bought) and we'll pack it up with the caravan and bring it to Washington, D.C. There we will create a giant "Flag City" - a sea of red, white and blue patriotism to surround our war memorials and show we will not turn our backs on our troops as they serve bravely overseas. Have your children make a homemade flag. Knit a flag. Bring a flag that has special meaning or significance to you, because these flags are going to be given to the finest Americans: our troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.
After the D.C. rally we'll send each flag that was displayed to a unit serving in Iraq or Afghanistan with a placard explaining where the flag flew and why.
UPDATE - February 14, 2007 3:55 PM PST: People have asked if they can send flags to us before we leave. The answer is YES! In fact we'd appreciate receiving as many as possible so that we can show the media and rally attendees the flags we've gotten along the way... starting with our first rally stops in California.
Send flags via UPS, US Mail, FedEx or other delivery service to:

UPDATE - February 16, 2007 12:10 PM PST: We are very pleased to be supporting the efforts of these organizations to have a massive turnout for the patriotic rally that takes place in Washington, D.C. - on Saturday, March 17th at the conclusion of our national "THESE COLORS DON'T RUN" pro-troop, patriotic caravan:
We'll have more updates here at this website EVERY DAY - so get started making a flag, decorate your car red, white and blue to join the caravan, and be ready to send a message to our nation and our troops serving overseas: We support our troops because we know SURRENDER IN IRAQ IS NOT AN OPTION!
