FW: Media Misses Biggest Reenlistment Ceremony (and Pizza Party) in US History!
Regardless of what you think of the war, this was an event that deserved publicity. Don’t depend on ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, or their radio affiliates to keep you well-informed.
On July 4, 2008, 1,215 American military reenlisted, with General David Petraeus officiating. Held at Al Faw Palace, it was the highest number of reenlistments on a single day in American history!
The video below gives you a hint of how cramped this huge palace was during the event. Spend 1 minute 23 seconds getting a better perspective by watching the ceremony and at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6aAU1XE8MQk.
Did you hear about it via any of the mainstream media? I bet not! Talk about your twisted news outlets! These dedicated Americans put their lives on the line for several more years because the mission is honorable and working. And stateside Americans weren’t informed.
Did you know that Lou Malnatiâ’s Pizzeria in Chicago sent 2000 pizzas to Baghdad on that date? The Chicago Tribune reported the delivery, but not a word about the reenlistment ceremony. The pizza party was the brainchild of Retired Air Force Master Sgt. Mark Evans of Elk Grove Village, IL, and his teen son Kent. This duo coordinated it on several fronts, Gen. Petraeus, Malnatiâ’s, and DHL and the public. Their goal was enough donations to send 300 pizzas, but the response was overwhelming!
