You won't believe who's watching....

I was checking out this websites' analytics this morning. It's basically a snapshot of who is visiting, where they are from, how they find us and how long they stay. I found it very interesting that people in the following countries have been here to see what we were doing:

- Brazil
- Philippines
- Canada
- France
- Russia
- United Kingdom
- Germany
- Malasia
- South Korea
- Bulgaria
- Georgia Province
- Poland
- Pakistan
- Singapore
- Puerto Rico
- Columbia
- Croatia
- United Arab Emerates
- Iraq
- Denmark
- Czech Republic
- Japan
- Argentina
- Vietnam
- Slovakia
- New Zealand
- Taiwan

It's hard for me to imagine who is looking at this from those countries. Is it our soldiers stationed across the world or is it the curious leadership of other countries?

For a little ole website that pays no one to promote it - well, I think this speaks for itself; Americans will work together to help our Veterans and most importantly - The world wants to know what Americans are doing to help their Veterans.

What do you think?

Letter to Michael...

Most people in this area know that Michael Jordon just bought the Charlotte Bobcats. This past Sunday he wrote an open letter to the city of Charlotte saying he will be a different leader and he is ready to listen to the public. I took it upon myself to write Michael a letter asking for his support and you can read it below. It's pretty funny because I had to play investigator for a while. You can't just write Michael Jordan a letter, send it to the arena and have him get it. Too many aides. I knew I had to hunt down the best place I could reach him and only got that after getting a great inside tip from one of the local reporters.


Mr. Jordan,

In your open letter to the Charlotte community you indicated that you were willing to listen, so here is my pitch;

My dad is a 78 year old Korean War Veteran & for the last few years he has been building an initiative to help Veterans. He is asking Congress to start selling (to the general public) a commemorative coin, postage stamps and treasury bonds that will Honor the Tomb of the Unknowns. All the proceeds generated would be given to organizations helping Veterans.

So far, over 84 local towns in North Carolina have adopted his project with formal resolutions of support, along with a few cities in Virginia and Pittsburg, PA. He has the individual signatures of about 35,000 people from a petition drive and The North Carolina Chapter of the Veterans of Foreign Wars have indicated in writing they support the project.

Our Congressional Representative is working with us right now to adopt actual legislation for his project that will provide millions of dollars in additional funding to our Veterans without increasing taxes or the national debt.

He needs a corporate voice, not a financial sponsor to help him make this project a reality. I realize you just spent $275 million in a recession so I wouldn’t come asking for your cash. Your voice alone in support for this project would show our community you care as well as help you gain a loyal following across the world from our Nation’s finest men and women.

I would love to present this project documentation to you in person, but in the interest of time you can get up to speed by visiting our website: www.veteranspetition.com.Watch the 4 minute video in the right hand column from the Charlotte City Council meeting.

Thank you for taking your time to consider this project. If you would like to speak with me confidentially about this at anytime please use my direct number below.

What do you think, will he call?

So...you wonder if it will work?

Since the modern commemorative coin program began in 1982, the United States Mint has raised over $418,000,000 in surcharges to help build new museums, maintain national monuments like the Vietnam War Memorial, preserve historical sites like George Washington's home, support various Olympic programs, and much more. - Source - The US Mint

Designing the Coin....

Over the past couple of days I have been designing "The Honor Coin". This coin will pay tribute to the Tomb of the Unknowns and will be used to generate funds to help our Veterans. Every year Congress is allowed to introduce  2 commemorative coins into legislation. The US Mint produces these coins and the legislation will determine who gets the rights to sell them to benefit from the proceeds.

Everyone that comes to this website should know that we are not interested in controlling ANY of these funds. Yes, we are going to ask Congress to name a beneficiary of our choice for the program but we won't be affiliated at all except to monitor how the funds are helping Veterans.

Union County Resolution

This is the resolution we obtained from Union County.

Changing Gears.....

It's been a long hard road for this 3 year Veterans Project.

It's amazing that a guy in Canada can hear about our project in America from Facebook, then go to his government and get his own stamp introduced to help the Veterans in his country before we can. Congratulations go to the Canadian Government and Mr. Dave Murphy for supporting their Canadian Soldiers. A job well done for sure.

When Dave first saw our project on Facebook, he contacted me and asked how Canadians could sign the petition because for some reason our website wouldn't allow him to sign his name. Not soon after, I read on Facebook that Mr. Murphy introduced a stamp honoring the Canadian Soldiers. The Canadian government recognized the benefits of the project and there is a stamp you can buy today in Canada and the proceeds help Veterans.

The time for sitting back and waiting is over! My father and I have met many people out there who have asked us "Why do we even have to debate this?" Our response is always the same,"That's a great question."

If this is your first time here, please take a moment and sign our petition. You may also want to become a subscriber to this website. We will now be posting daily information on our progress and we plan to use it as the sole vehicle for communication with our supporters.

If you have already signed the petition thanks, join this RSS feed or become a follower to keep more informed. Join in the conversations and help us spread the word.

If you support our Veterans, I would encourage you to join in on the fun. We have plenty of ways that anyone out there in internet land can help us make this entire project a reality. I need people interested in sending a few emails or making a few phone calls.

We need a breath of fresh air to help our efforts move forward. It's all for our Veterans. So, what do you think.....You in?

11.3.2009 - NC - VFW Supports the Project!

If you will check out the list in the previous post, you will see that the first name is the Veterans of Foreign Wars, NC Chapter. The State Commander sent us a letter earlier in the month saying they voted on it and decided to support us! This is huge for the Veterans Petition overall because without formal support from the Veterans, Congress won't consider it. Now, the Veterans of North Carolina and all of those Towns that have given us formal resolutions of support have given us the gas we needed to charge ahead even faster.

Stay Tuned, it's about to get busy up in here!

11.02.2009 - Over 4,500,000 Americans Support this project

Hello everybody and welcome to our updated website. 4 years ago my Dad came up with an idea to get Congress to help our Veterans by producing and selling to the public coins, bonds and stamps bearing the Tomb of the Unknowns. The proceeds from the sales of these items would go to helping fund additional services not currently offered to Veterans and their families in need!

In the paragraphs below you will see the most current list we have of Cities and Towns across America who have joined us to gain the attention of Congress. Each of the Towns or Organizations below have formally adopted formal resolutions of support for this project. Collectively, based on numbers we compiled from the internet these towns represent over 4,500,000 Americans. Not to mention, we have collected almost 20,000 signatures of individual Americans from all over the country.

We have spoken to our Congressional Leaders but for some reason we still need to convince them to listen. We need your help in making this a reality sooner rather later. We have come a long way over the last few months, but there is still a long road ahead. Help us today by sending an email saying you support the Veterans Petition. Just click on the link in the right hand column and remember to include your contact information as well as a brief statement of support. You can also subscribe as a follower and keep up with our progress along the way.
