"A National Day of Recognition"


George Washington’s Thanksgiving Proclamation:

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor — and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be — That we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks — for His kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation — for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of His Providence which we experienced in the tranquility [sic], union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed — for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One [capital O] now lately instituted — for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which He hath been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions — to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually — to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed — to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn [sic] kindness onto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord — To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the encrease [sic] of science among them and us — and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New York
the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789
George Washington

The Video and the People

Please take a moment to introduce yourself to the three individuals who help the MarchOfHonor.Org in their first video – MOH

Heidi Voight is former Ms. Connecticut 2006 and strong supporter of the United States military and Veterans. She is a member of numerous Veterans groups including American Legion Auxiliary, American Legion Riders, Association of the United States Army, AUSA Riders, Patriot Guard Riders and national spokesperson for the Missing In America Veterans Recovery Project. Ms Voight is passionate about supporting our nation’s heroes and their families. This year Heidi participated in the 34th Anniversary Marine Corps Marathon as a Community Athlete for the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund lending her support to this important cause. In addition to her Veterans activities Ms. Voight is also an active voice for abused women and children representing this cause on both the state and national stage. Ms Voight is smart, articulate, dedicated and a valuable public servant for those in need. The March Of Honor is proud to be associated with Ms. Voight and thanks her for her support with the “A National Day Of Recognition”

Spc. Ron Whiteman Ret. served with the Army’s 1st Battalion 12th Infantry Division 4th ID in the central highlands of Vietnam 1966-67. An American who served his country with distinction but also bore the rigors of war in a time that made it very difficult for returning Veterans to readjust to civilian life. Difficult times followed Mr. Whiteman’s return from Vietnam and lasted into his early 30’s when he found redemption and peace in a community of faith. The years that have followed, Mr Whiteman has dedicated to being a voice and advocate for those who do not have a voice of their own. A husband, father, minister and worldly man, Mr. Whiteman has spent his most recent years as a chaplain for the American Foreign Legion, Post 7666 in Connecticut.

He is a stark reminder of both a generation and war past, a Vietnam Veteran who remains in our present. The March Of Honor asked Mr. Whiteman to stand with the project because he symbolizes millions of older Americans whose war ended 35-40 years ago on the battlefield but never in their hearts and minds. Men like Mr. Whiteman are vivid reminders of an obligation and duty that all Americans have today to respect and look after this generation of returning Veterans from OEF and OIF. Mr. Ron Whiteman stands with the March Of Honor because its his chance to do for this generation and nation’s soldiers what he had wish many in his generation would have done for him.

Logan Brynes is an anchor of the Fox 61 Morning News in Connecticut. A familiar face to Connecticut’s news viewers, Mr. Byrnes was also a frequent guest host of “The Talk of Connecticut” on WDRC-AM. The March Of Honor went to Logan and asked to use his talents to help craft the first of many March Of Honor videos that will be released. Mr. Byrnes has donated his time and efforts to many causes both in CT and nationally and has always been a strong voice for the Non-Profit sector where ever he has worked. The March Of Honor thanks Logan for his time and hopes to find other roles for him to play in the future with the MarchOfHonor.Org

The First Full Week…The March Of Honor Starts to Spread


This is the start of first full week of the MarchOfHonor.Org “A National Day Of Recognition” Campaign. There is lots to do and it’s important that a big thank you is extended to all those who have joined MOH early and started to spread the word about the mission before the country. The March Of Honor has a long road ahead and many exciting but diffiult missions lay down the roadĀ  in order to achieve the stated goals.

As the campaign exist now, the next few weeks will be spent reaching out to web and media outlets to tell them about MOH and and let them know how they can help. The Facebook Fan, Group and Profile pages have begun to come alive with almost 200 hundred new members joining the cause and spreading the word. The goal is by the end of the month to have 1000 folks on the Fan page and to use this platform to spread the word. Media outlets both locally and nationally are in the que and preparations are being made to send out materials, point them to the MarchOfHonor.Org and to pick up the phone and start making the calls that matter.

Please visit the March Of Honor website, tell your friends about the MOH and start sending letters to Washington, DC to make America’s politicians, appointed and respected officials aware of the March Of Honor. The idea behind the March Of Honor has always been to build a movement of Americans who support our OEF/OIF Troops and their Families. This is America’s opportunity to jump in behind the soldiers, get them a Day Of Recognition and raise money for some great non-profits that sit on the front lines of Veterans rehabilitation and support programs. Please join us and send your cards today.
