Caravan for the War to Stop at Crosses Thursday

In a reverse of its normal use, the Lafayette memorial will be the first stop of a pro-war caravan heading to DC. A Contra Costa Times article by Katherine Tam reports:

"The Lafayette crosses that have become a gathering spot for Iraq war opponents is slated to be the first stop Thursday for a support-the-troops caravan en route to Washington, D.C.

Move America Forward, a Sacramento group that supports the war against terrorism including military missions in Iraq and Afghanistan, is organizing a coast-to-coast caravan that's scheduled to leave San Francisco March 8 and reach Lafayette about 10 a.m.

The group plans to hold a 30-minute rally at the crosses blanketing a hillside on Deer Hill Road. Local supporters plan to give caravan members flags, letters from soldiers and other items to take to the nation's capital."
