After Action Report
Boycott Redacted Rally!
United Center, Chicago, Illinois
Bulls vs. Mavericks
"Mark Cuban's Mavericks"
I would regard this Boycott
of the Mavericks as a success! There were 5 of us who
gathered and we were 5 Proud Americans letting folks know that we won't
stand for a billionaire or anyone, to make movies that trash our troops.
Our Soldiers are HEROES doing heroic deeds everyday. We braved the
25 degree "frigid" weather and as we did, we reminded ourselves that our
troops brave horrible temperatures year round!
We received much
encouragement and a lot of thumbs up! Some of the folks going into
the game flashed us signs they were taking in with them and let's just
say they had nothing to do with basketball and everything to do with
Mark Cuban! Two supporters came over and shook our hands and thanked us
for coming out. They told us that they had 25 guys that were
going to come out but when Redacted bombed so badly, they changed their
mind. They took one of our signs in the game with them that read:
"Mark Cuban, Fund a movie about our Soldiers, Our Heroes!"
We also picked up a new
supporter who assured us he has the ability to mobilize a large crowd
with a couple of phone calls! Offered his help for future
activities! We will call on his support in the future, no doubt!
Thank you so very much to
those who came out. We all agreed it sure feels better to brave
the cold and support our troops rather than sit in our living rooms
and do nothing. With every gathering, this movement to support our
troops is growing and from this mother of a Soldier, it warms my heart.
Thank you again for taking a
stand in support of our Soldiers. They deserve our support and our
respect and we need to stand up for them as they stand up for all of
us! I am the very PROUD mother of a Soldier and a Hero and I suggest to
Mark Cuban he change his frame of reference the next time he funds a
movie about our Soldiers. They are Heroes Mr. Cuban and I hope you
learned your lesson. The best lessons learned are usually the ones
that really hit you HARD in the pocketbook and this one sure hit you
The Very Proud Mother of A
Hero in Afghanistan!
