    March w/MOC in a Memorial Day parade!!

    MOC's application to march in Sterling Heights' Memorial Day parade has been accepted. We participated last year and it was one of the highlights of our year. Join us to honor the heroes who gave their lives to protect our rights. You do not have to OC to march with us, but OC is absolutely encouraged. This is a kid friendly parade, so bring your little ones if you like!

    Details...

    When- Monday May 30th staging @ 8:30am, marching @ 10:00am

    Where- Shuttle buses at the parades ending point will transport you to the staging area. This saves you the walk back to your car at the end of the parade. A CPL is required to use this service. Buses run 7:30am-9:30am from Heritage Jr. High 37400 Dodge Park Sterling Heights. If you do not want to use the shuttle, meet at the City Hall Complex located at the intersection of Dodge Park/Utica Rd, in the parking lot, south of the library.

    Dress weather appropriate(it was 80 degrees and sunny last year!) and wear comfortable walking shoes.

    Thank you to MOC's President for setting this up again!

    Hands down, this was my best OC Experience to date.

    Since last year was the first year for this event, many of us were pretty nervous at "marching down the center of the road OC'ing". After about 25 "thumbs-up" responses, I stopped counting. Nothing but positive responses last year.

    Maybe they are there to wash off the blood that most certainly will be running in the streets. All I can say is that you folks need to think about the children! (Extreme sarcasm)
    Hope you all have fun and I thank those who attend for exercising a right that exemplifies what others have died for.

    This was a great event. Got to honor those who fought and lost their lives for our rights. Lots of people clapping for us. Along the route was a WWII vet some of us stopped and thanked him for his service. Great way to start a beautiful Memorial day.

    24 patriots marched with MOC today in honor of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. I was humbled by the parade watchers and veterans who saluted us, clapped for us and yelled out the occasional "Hell yeah!" or "that's what I'm talking about!". I would be surprised if I attend another event this year that makes me feel more resolute in continuing to do what I do. God bless America!

    Yet more proof that what we do is a good thing. There were so many positive reactions to us it was really a great thing to see so many vets saluteing us and clapping. This was an even bigger success than it was last year! we nearly doubled the number we had last year! A vet I shook hands with said he really loved to see people on the front line of gun rights!
    Such a great event! Can't wait to see the group pictures!!

    That man in the wheelchair toward the end almost got a tear out of me. Just something about him and the look he has when he had a line of OCers wanting to shake his hand.

    This was a great event again, about twice the number of people participating. I think we were better received than last year, if that was possible.

    Its a Cavalry cover. Not a Halo.
