Operation Yellow Elephant

In my last bumper sticker watch I mentioned a small SUV with a Veteran licence plate and several inflammatory bumper stickers, including this one:

Support the war? Then ENLIST!

and this one:

So you say you support the war...
Why don't you fight in it?
Put up or shut up!


I should have guessed that I was just scratching the surface of a bonafide movement! While at Mark Nicholas' BluegrassReport.org, a progressive blog following Kentucky politics, a commenter drew my attention to Operation Yellow Elephant, an organization which describes itself as

a non-partisan grass roots citizens initiative to Support Our President by encouraging his strongest supporters, if qualified, to volunteer for military service.

To find out more about Operation Yellow Elephant and its goal to "to recruit College Republicans and Young Republicans to serve as infantry," see this post at the Operation Yellow Elephant blog.

Thanks very much.

Operation Yellow Elephant is a nonpartisan grass roots citizens initiative to Support Our President by encouraging his strongest supporters, if qualified, to volunteer for military service.

As only healthy heterosexuals 41 and under are eligible, we focus on College and Young Republicans. If a particular patriot is not accepted for enlistment, Your Country Thanks You for stepping forward.

After all, if President Bush cannot convince even his strongest supporters to volunteer, how can he possibly lead our nation, and the international coalition, to a successful outcome of the Global War on Terrorism in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere?
