THIS TIME IT’S A VICTORY RALLY
As appeared in the JOURNAL STAR Peoria, Illinois
Organizers are hoping for 10,000 participants at the Desert Storm II Support Rally to be held at 2 p.m. Sunday at Eckwood Park in downtown Peoria. “Apparently this will be a Victory Rally said Bill Comer, commander of Peoria’s American Legion Post 2, at a press conference Thurs., While there is a certain amount of relief with recent developments in the Gulf, rally organizers said there is still a need to support troops who remain seperated from their families. “There’s a lot of people who are going to be over there for a long time and they still need our support” said retired Peoria Police Sgt. David Horner, one of the rally organizers.
Singer/songwriter Eddie Reasoner will be performing his song “Stand Your Ground” at the rally and will present a concert at the Continental Regency Hotel immediately following.
The song supports U.S. Military efforts in the Persian Gulf with lyrics like this:
“God Bless My Brother Joe – ‘Cause He’s All Set To Go
And I’ll Be Right Behind Him If He Needs Me
With the Nations All Beside Us and the Good Lord There to Guide Us
It Won’t Be Long Until We Set Em’ Free
The rally is being organized by local veterans and family support groups and concert tickets will be available at the door.
