Victory! Cease Fire!

Muscle Shoals, AL

Cease fire boys!

The Muscle Shoals parade committee has run up the white flag and
asked for
terms! The Col. William A. Johnson Camp #898 WILL be in the Muscle
Christmas parade this Friday with a complete Color Guard and our
banners and
flying! I can’t tell you how great it feels to win such a stunning
complete victory over the forces of ignorance and political
correctness! Let me
take this opportunity to thank each and every one of our brethren
who took the
time to make a phone call, write a letter or send an email
concerning this
slap at our heritage.
According to our Commander and 1st Lt. Commander who were present
at the
parade committee hearing, the parade committee were almost
stumbling over each
other to be the first to apologize for the "misunderstanding"
regarding our
entry in the parade. They backed completely away from their original
position in which they stated that we could have no flags, no
Color Guard, and no
banners containing the SCV logo. The only way to put it is that we
won a
complete and total victory!
I would like to invite everyone that can to come on up to Muscle
Shoals and
celebrate with us as our Color Guard marches past carrying the
proud flags
of our Fathers! Once more, thanks so much for everyone who helped.
It was
YOU that made this victory!

I am,

Yours in The Cause,
