For the repeal rally we set up 800 flags to represent the 800 specialists dismissed due to Don't Ask Don't Tell. Overall, over 13,500 people have been dismissed, but that was deemed a few too many flags to put up on the Memorial Mall! And now I get to stop before I go onto my now well rehearsed speech about why we must repeal DADT.
It was a lot of fun. A press conference was held at one, and members of the local media were present. So far I have seen one media story, by WLFI (the local news station). I am in the background in several of the shots for the video. The other group at the end of the clip stopped by after their event, and we got TONS of signatures from them. (I really want to thank FACT. You are amazing! Keep up the good work!).
