"Gathering of Eagles" rally video

The video of the rally in Staunton, expressing support for the "Gathering of Eagles," is now available for viewing. (The event was chronicled in last Saturday's post.) It features Rhonda Winfield, mother of fallen hero Jason Redifer, as well as Sgt. Herb Harman, who recently returned from a one-year tour of duty in Iraq. The video has only a few excerpts of the speeches, for the sake of brevity, and my apologies to those who were not included. It runs three minutes and twenty seconds, and has a 9.3MB file size. To view it, you need QuickTime media software, available free from Thanks go out to all those folks who organized this event.

The quality of Web video is by nature quite mediocre, so just in case anyone is interested in seeing a higher-quality full-screen version in video CD format (playable on most but not all DVD machines) please contact me. I made a similar video CD of the August 2005 rally, and I would include both on the same disk.
