National Recruiters Day May 19th

Eric Cooper is leading that effort through Gathering of Eagles. He is also involved with Soldiers' Angels.

Eric has asked Soldiers Angels to assist getting the word out-thus far there has been commitments from the following states:


You may reach Eric Cooper through e-mail.

You may also reach him at the GOE site.

To get involved- please contact Eric and ask if a leader is set in place yet-- and if not- sign up!! and if there is a leader- contact them to assist with a game plan for the state.

Greetings! As announced by the Gathering of Eagles.

Chairman on 6 Apr, GOE is planning to recognize the critical contributions of America's military

Larry Bailey's directive follows:

"Our first nationwide project will be "Operation Recruiter Appreciation (ORA)." On May 19th, Armed Forces Day, Eagles will independently set up appreciation demonstrations outside undreds of military recruiting offices across the country. each effort will be planned and coordinated by local Eagles, and each effort will, accordingly, have its own "hometown" flavor."

So what do you need to do to take part in GOE Recruiter Appreciation Day? Use your imagination!

Below I have listed some suggestions, but that's all they are. I hope to see this thread become quite active as people come up with their own ideas of how to honor and thank our military recruiters.

Suggestions for ORA:
  • Deliver a pizza and some sodas to the recruiter's office around lunchtime.

  • Drop off some VIP movie passes you picked up from a nearby theater.

  • Set up a table outside the office (after receiving permission) with some signs/banners advertising GOE and, more importantly, your efforts to honor the recruiters' service and sacrifice. Perhaps have some goodies and a card for passersby to sign, contributing their appreciation.

  • Have your kids help you whip up some homemade cookies and/or brownies, and have the kids deliver them. Once the ice is broken, the kids and recruiters will definitely enjoy the visit. Trust me!

  • Invite one or more of the recruiters to your home for dinner later in the week.

  • Please don't let a limited budget prevent you from participating. A simple hand-made card from a child, or even a smile and a warm handshake won't cost anything but will lift some spirits and let our troops know you care.

  • During your visit, get some of the recruiters to pose with you for a few photos, so that we can share in your visit here on the forum. (Please remember to get permission to use their mages/names)

  • Take a homemade sign saying "Thank you!" or "God bless our military" along with a few friends and stand outside a local recruiter's office
You get the idea. We'll leave times flexible, but I would recommend around lunchtime in your areas. Not only is it easy to tie in with food and beverages, but hopefully the recruiters won't have to work too late on a Saturday. (I said "hopefully".)

We do ask that all participants try to connect their shows of support with Gathering of Eagles. It's a nice way for your particular recruiters to find out about our mission, and it will be the perfect excuse for you to share with them that others across our nation are conducting similar shows of support and appreciation.

If you can't afford to purchase a large GOE banner, consider buying and/or wearing a GOE armband instead. Or simply have a homemade sign and/or business cards with our name and website.
How do I locate a recruiter?

Find information on local U.S. Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard recruiters by entering your zip code here.

For an Army recruiter specifically, you may need to go to this location instead.

As always if you do not want to recieve these emails and want off of SA lists please send an
email with full name, email address, and State to help us know where to look and please send them to Soldiers' Angels alert team.

Part 1 is here. This is part 2. Please try to do whatever you can. It will be greatly appreciated. :)
