Daniel New, Project Manager of the Michael New Action Fund, and Joe Sager, Webmaster and Research Director for MNAF, are still on the road as they travel home. Driving straight through, it is a 28 hour drive. They are not driving straight through. We have visited King's Mountain Battleground in South Carolina, and will visit another battleground in Mississippi today. Add a little problem to the vehicle, and due to that delay we may not be home until Monday. But we are moving in that direction.
In the meantime, here's what you can do to help Michael New's cause -- which is NOT the removal of a Bad Conduct Discharge at all, but is the placing of a legal roadblock to see that what happened to him will not happen again to any soldier. We have presented, one more time, a revised edition of the Citizen Soldier Protection Act. Dr. Ron Paul actually introduced this bill on Thursday, the same day as the court hearing, but a number has not been assigned. We expect that to happen on Tuesday.
(Wow! Did I make an error in my math? I don't think so. I'll explain this latter, if you need help with it. It all comes down to your Management Skills with your team of ten, and their team of five. (Do we need to prepare a little manual for you to figure out how to do this?) If you're in Michael New's Red, White & Blue Battalion, then you either have your own Squad of 10, or your are going to start recruiting it today.)
Blessings on you all,
