Theme: ENCOURAGE Young Republicans to Be A Man and Enlist!

Have a little old lady with a sign: I was a V-Girl!

Have an empowered modern woman with a sign: I AM a V-Woman!

Have an Abercrombie model with a sign: Ken, I'll be your V-boi!

Spread the word on the other side, too. We want the American Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars out there 'encouraging' Young Republicans to do their part.

What about Young Republicans who are themselves veterans? We respect them for their service to our country. AND, as long as the Republican Party supports Don't Ask, Don't Tell, forcing Other Veterans into Federal Court to serve, they're still on the hook.

2. Contact Military recruiters ask them to attend The Young Republicans Conv.
Here is the location of the Young Republicans Convention

Crystal Gateway Marriott

Here is the contact info for the local military recruiters.

I am going to err on the side of caution and be very selective with what information I post. DU moderators seem to be very conservative about how much contact information is too much.

I've deleted direct email addresses and the names of individuals.

Additional contact info available upon request.

3. Called the Navy. They were un-aware of the convention, too.
So far, neither the Army nor the Navy had been contacted to cover this event.

I was told to call Navy Public Affairs:
804-771-2001 ext 126

I spoke to a chief there, who transfered me to The Enlistment Programs Officer. The person in charge wasn't in, so I gave a message to their assistant.

He asked me what I wanted The Navy to do there at the convention.

I said maybe you could set-up a booth in the lobby. "Or, you could just walk around talking to people like you do at the mall. These are all people who supported the pResident and his policies, so you should have easy pickings there." I told him to call Stephanie Holmes to work-out the details.

So, if anyone else wants to call, the number is 804-771-2001 and ask for The Enlistment Programs Officer.

My next call is going to be to The Young Marines.

4. So now I called The Navy, The Marines and Air Force
For Young Marines, all I got was voicemail.

The Navy gave me the number for their Public Affairs office:
Sgt. Campbell
301-567-4248

I left him a message. His out-going message says that if it is an emergency, you can call him on his cell phone. I won't post his cell phone number here, but if you want it, just call his voicemail.

I left a message for The Air Force Recruitment Public Affairs at 301-567-4248 in the voicemail box of Sgt. Campbell. He's covering for the Commander who will be out until June 27th.

At the US Marine Corps I called Master Sgt. Edwards
703-784-9454
Left voicemail.

6. Recruiters in Las Vegas

I sent letters to the Army Recruiters (stations, company in Las Vegas, Battalion in Utah somewhere and Brigade in North Las Vegas). I think that they contacted the Young Republican National Convention organizers directly from here.

I sent letters to the Marine Recruiters (stations only, in Las Vegas).

I sent a letter to the Nevada National Guard HQ in Carson City.

I sent a letter to the single Navy Recruiting station in Las Vegas.

I sent a letter to the single Coast Guard Recruiting station in Las Vegas and got back a nice e-mail thanking me for letting them know.

I didn't bother with the Air Force. It's the Army and the Army Reserve that needs the most help.
