South Tour: Atlanta and Savannah
September 12th, 2005

By Dante Zappala, GSFP

It was an early start for those of us sleeping in the RV. Chito kicked us out at six in the morning to take our bus to the shop and get the generator fixed. They changed the starter and the oil and she’s purring like a kitten again.

We didn’t ship off from Atlanta until 2 o’clock, which set us back just a bit. We arrived in Savannah to join Phil and Linda, who were preparing to appear on the Donny Deutch show on CNBC. He was hosting a town hall meeting from his studio in New York with families whose loved ones are serving or were lost in Iraq. Linda was doing a remote interview for the show and we were there to be in support

When we arrived where the satellite truck was down at the river, the sun was going down and the sky lit up behind us. We were able to watch what was happening on a small TV screen. Prior to the show going live, a woman came out to prep the studio audience. She gave them instructions on how to stand, speak and sit. She also asked them to clap a lot. Grieving mothers and angst-ridden wives were being told to get excited about this discussion of the Iraq War. Miss USO appeared in a short mini and sang a “boogie-woogie
