6. The rumors about the army we’re building. Yeah…we’re forming an army…an army of activists that is. And we’re really proud of them. Many of our activists are veterans. And many of them are part of our Veterans for COS. Many of these veterans were leaders in their service branch, and they are continuing to honor their oath to defend the Constitution. But we don’t just have veterans, the activists voluntarily gathering around COS represent a broad cross-section of America. We have volunteers from every state legislative district in America. We have had sixteen year olds testify as well as eighty year olds.
