Support Our Troops Rally 4/08/2003
Carnation, WA

A Washington member of FreeRepublic ( joined other Pacific Northwesterners in the latest of ongoing local rallies to Support Our Troops.  This time it was held in the middle of the small but historic town of Carnation, Washington. Originally founded as the town of Tolt, the rising fame of the Carnation milk company whose R&D farm is close by (pictured below), resulted in the town's name change.

The rally was small, but busy.  As seems to be ever the case, there are the personal connections.  In this case, Pfc. Joseph M. Duggan is proudly represented, by his mother and others:

American flags are, of course the order of the day:


The biker crowd was represented -- this fellow made the long trip from Marysville up north just to be here:

And though small, the energy of the rallyers (and the response from those driving by) was enormous.


And that's no bull.
