Outside the gate to Fort Lewis, Washington. This demonstration was in support of eliminating "stop loss",
which is the military's way of retaining key personnel even after they've fulfilled their service contract.
GIVoice.org is the website associated with Coffee Strong, a 60s-style coffee house just several blocks

Less ambitious signs, which have text over vinyl backing, have the advantage of
* computer-generated text, printed on 8.5 x 11 paper, making the sign reusable
* panels connected with velcro strips
* easy fold-up, carry under arm
* extremely light weight
