Pro troops caravan stops in Vacaville

Andrews Park was awash in red, white and blue today as dozens gathered to show their solidarity with American troops.

Vacaville was one stop for a multi-vehicle caravan traveling through Northern California on its way across the country to Washington D.C., picking up new supporters on the way. After Vacaville, the caravan planned to visit Sacramento and Stockton before heading to Fresno and Bakersfield.

The caravan is sponsored by Move America Forward, a non-profit group committed to backing the Armed Forces and defeating terrorism.

"We're not into politics," said Joseph Williams, a Vacaville resident affiliated with the group whose son was killed in Iraq. "We're just into supporting America and supporting the troops."

Upon arriving in Washington, the caravan will end in a rally on Capitol Mall that is meant to counter planned anti-war demonstrations on March 17.
