Vets for McCain Victory Rally NYC 11/01/08

Vets for McCain staged a series of simultaneous rallies across New York State today.

The New York CIty rally was at Foley Square. The weather was perfect, the crowd enthusiastic and the speakers inspired! Lee Zeldin, the Iraq Vet for Congress candidate from Suffolk county was there as well as Colonel Bridger, a Vietnam Veteran POW who was held in the Hanoi Hilton with John McCain. Joe Femenia, Navy SEAL who served in Afghanistan and Iraq, and Gary Bernsten, CIA veteran of Afghanistan and Iraq.

Normally I don’t care for political speeches. Something about listening to politicians generally doesn’t do anything for me. But let me tell you these guys were outstanding. They had the crowd riveted and focused. The crowd included Veterans, Democrats for McCain, and at least one adorable baby with the right attitude!



Pictures and Video will follow. Check back as more links are added. It takes a while to get the video uploaded.

National Review and the American Spectator both have excellent stories:
