GOE: News you can use

Iraq Veteran Tells It Like It Is .
My guest tonight on The Front Line is Paul Couturier, a veteran of the war in Iraq. He is a Captain in the Massachusetts Army National Guard, soon to be promoted to Major. Paul served as a Maintenance Officer with his Guard unit (a Maintenance Battalion HQ) in Iraq; the unit was deployed to southern Iraq from May 2003 to March 2004.

A Message from Captain Larry Bailey, GOE Chairman.
Eagles: On Tuesday night I was interviewed by Jere Beery’s buddy Gene Simes on Stardust Radio.

The bottom line is that we are here for one purpose: to counter the anti-American hatred spewed by those who wish to denigrate and dishonor our soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines. Period.

Lodging Update.
If you have not reserved a room in Washington, D.C. for GOE II, you need to do so as quickly as possible. Remember, there are going to be all the members of Rolling Thunder in town, Run For the Wall, and other organizations in town for the rally. Don’t get left out in Maryland somewhere!

Welcome to GOE Version 2.
As you’ve probably figured out, GOE has been redesigned. I’ve taken into consideration much of the feedback we’ve gotten from you, and hopefully you’ll find this site easier to navigate, more streamlined, and just plain better to look at. (If you do decide you like the basic layout, thank Heidi. She found the layout and I just made it pretty.) [Continue reading.]
