Warner Robbins- Hundreds of Georgians line the lawn at the Warner Robbins municipal Complex, waving flags and wearing the faces of loved ones away at war. For the families they left behind rallies like this one have been a blessing.
"It makes me feel good. Its like they understand what I'm going through by my son being there," says Dorothy Whipple.
Even though her sons haven't been deployed yet, one mother says its important to show her support because they could be called at any moment.
"It makes you nervous a little bit, but I have prayer to take me through this, so it helps a lot," admits Dotnell Underwood.
Just a few feet away another mother holds back the tears as she reflects on not only her own son, but also her father who was a veteran as well.
"My dad died in Vietnam and before he died, like the gentleman up there, he was spit on and I remember that, and I didn't want my son to be spit on, and he's got so much love and support here. Its so good," says Linda Vanosdol.
Whether their message was written on a banner, a sign, or their faces these Georgians say they will rally until the troops come home.
If you want to show your support for the troops, Cumulus Broadcasting is hosting a rally and blood drive for the troops at the Lee County Wal Mart Sunday afternoon beginning at two.
