American Veterans for Equal Rights seeks pride parade volunteers

Danny Ingram, president of American Veterans for Equal Rights, put out a call today for volunteers to march with the gay military group in the upcoming Atlanta Pride parade.

The group also needs four Jeep Wranglers, with a removable top, to carry special guests. One Jeep will carry veterans from World War II, another will carry veterans from the Vietnam War, which Ingram notes commemorates the 50th anniversary this year. Another Jeep is planned for Colonel Arlene Ackerman, the organization's highest ranking member.

Anyone who can help are encouraged to contact Danny Ingram at
