We’re all a band of brothers…especially when we’re talking about preserving the memory of our nation’s fallen heroes.

Today, you and other patriots all throughout the country are rallying together with First Liberty in our pledge to keep the Bladensburg WWI Veterans Memorial standing.

What’s more, your support for our nation’s veterans and their memorials keeps pouring in left and right! Right now, there are already over 15,000 of you who have made your voices heard by signing our petition!

And you’re not alone in your passionate devotion to America’s veterans.

Prominent leaders, respected veterans organizations, and leading religious institutions in our country have expressed their support, joining us on the frontlines to save this iconic piece of our nation’s history.

Capitol Hill leaders like Sen. Ted Cruz, Rep. Jim Jordan, Rep. Steve Scalise and 106 other members of Congress have come on board to support our effort, as well as 30 Attorneys General from multiple states who’ve made it loud and clear that the Bladensburg Memorial is a part of America’s heritage, history and values.

Not to mention, America’s most decorated living veteran – Gen. Patrick Brady – and a host of other veterans groups, like the Military Order of the Purple Heart, the Veterans of Foreign Wars and Medal of Honor recipients, have likewise joined this historic fight.

In fact, this case has garnered more amicus (friend-of-the-court) briefs than any U.S. Supreme Court case in the last 5 years!

To The American Legion:

As a grateful citizen, I support your effort to honor those who have fallen in battle and to keep the Bladensburg WWI Veterans Memorial standing as a visible reminder of valor, sacrifice, endurance, and devotion.

Veterans memorials like the one in Bladensburg, MD are symbols reminding us of the sacrifice of our service members and the cost of war. Tearing down the Bladensburg Memorial would erase the memory of the 49 fallen heroes of Prince George’s County—like they never even existed.

We cannot allow the Bladensburg Memorial to be bulldozed.

Please know that you have my support and backing in your petition to the U.S. Supreme Court.
