Marines, Army Vets Coming to New York to Protect Occupy Wall Street Protest

They took an oath to defend the U.S. Constitution and are coming to New York.

By Gregg Prescott, M.S.

TAMPA, FL – The Occupy Wall Street movement may have just received an unexpected surprise – United States Army and Marine troops are reportedly on their way to various protest locations to support the movement and to protect the protesters.

Army serviceman  Ward Reilly posted the following on Facebook:

“I’m heading up there tonight in my dress blues. So far, 15 of my fellow marine buddies are meeting me there, also in Uniform.

I want to send the following message to Wall St and Congress:

I didn’t fight for Wall St. I fought for America. Now it’s Congress’ turn.

My true hope, though, is that we Veterans can act as first line of defense between the police and the protester. If they want to get to some protesters so they can mace them, they will have to get through the Fucking Marine Corps first. Let’s see a cop mace a bunch of decorated war vets.

  1. These guys get it. Finally fellow vets have had it with these corporate mercenaries who are actually part of the 99% that the Wall Street Wolfpack are attacking. Right now, at this very minute 400 families own more wealth than the combined wealth of the bottom 150,000,000 Americans!! That is an obscenity. Here we have millionaire chickenhawks on Fux Noose, in Wall Street, in the defense industry, in the oil industry, in the coal industry, in the gas industry crying POVERTY since the 2008 crash. What poppykoch!! They have a phalanx of lawyers that exploit loopholes to avoid their taxes and get REBATES for what? Running this country to the ground betting on US to fail, that’s America? If they want to establish an HQ in the Caimans or China or Sri Lanka fine. Kick them the fuck out of our country and have them set up shop in the foreign country of their choice!! These traitors are the real “illegal immigrants” so let’s deport THEM!!!!

  2. Semper Fi ! I love it. If I were 20 years younger I would be there. And you can bet your ass the first person
    I would go after would be the asshole Police dude (the officer who maced the crowd that was already penned in
    the other day….I his title was “Inspector” or something like that) who ranks right up there with the definition of
    scumbag. Go get’em Marines ! Maybe I’ll get a chance to attend the rally when it is held in Phoenix. Once,
    again, Semper Fi….

  3. Hell yeah! Semper Fi brothers!! Yes, this is exactly what needs to happen. Once a Marine, ALWAYS A MARINE and I’m with you all the way.

    If one of my US Marine brothers gets touched by a punk ass cop I guarantee to you a can of whip-ass is coming to NYC. I have protected my fellow Marines in battle before and will do it again cause I love my country … Protect against all enemies foreign and domestic
