We want YOU to join us in Fayetteville, GA on 9/28/13 to give the Vietnam Veterans the homecoming they should’ve received 40 years ago. Here’s what we need:
~ Vietnam Veterans: If you’re a Vietnam veteran, we’d love to have you be in the parade regardless of where you now call home. (We do, however, need to know you’re coming.)
~ Friends, Family, and flag-waving Patriots to line the streets.
~ Floats. Individuals, businesses, organizations, and other groups are invited to have a car or a float in the parade. There’s no charge to enter a float, so complete the application and email it to the address on the form. (Veterans who would like to be in the parade need to complete and send in an application, too. We need a head count so we can be sure to have enough vehicles to offer every veteran a ride.)
~ Buy wristbands to help pay the expenses. If you’d like to sell some, that would be really fantastic.
~ Make a donation to help pay expenses.
~ Volunteer. We need all kinds of help from ushers to publicity.
~ Become a part of the community by “liking” our Facebook page and say you’re coming on our Facebook event page. You can also help us get the word out by sharing both pages with your Facebook friends.
~ Help us spread the word. Tell Vietnam veterans, tell everybody you see. Let’s line the streets and give these men and women the homecoming they deserve.

I am proud to be a member of PinUps for Soldiers, a nonprofit group that provides care packages for active duty military. Currently, we have committed to providing 800 Christmas stockings filled with goodies for soldiers in Afghanistan.
It’s amazing how quickly just $2 can add up. If all of my Facebook and Twitter friends donate $2 to the cause, we will raise over $2,400. To make your $2 – or more! – contribution, go to our Facebook page and click on “Donate”. There is also a shop if you’d like to buy merchandise. (I’m not in the calendar this year, but hopefully will be next year!)
We are also collecting stockings and items for the stockings, so if you prefer to donate items instead of or in addition to money, there is a list online of what we need. You can bring them to me by noon on Saturday, 11/12 or mail them to

And/or you can come see us at our Veteran’s Day event Saturday night at the Masquerade – Mon Cherie’s Rockabilly Lounge – Pinups for Soldiers Burlesque Show
Be sure to let me know when you make a donation because I want to brag on you and thank you myself. Thank you for supporting such a wonderful cause!

Got my lips on Lou Costello!
Then got my lips on Abbott. Didn’t want him to get jealous!
With a couple of the Warbird Pinup girls. Nice to meet you ladies!
Thank you Tim Wagner and everyone at the Greenwood Lake Air Show for your hospitality. I had a great time. Hope to see y’all next year (minus Irene, of course)! br>

If you’re in the vicinity of Atlanta this weekend, come on out and join us at the WWII Heritage Days. What better way to spend a pretty spring weekend than soaking up history?
