CALL TO ACTION for Oath Keepers to Deliver Cards and Flowers to Local Police Across the Nation, Expressing Our Sympathy and Support
Oath Keepers members, this is a national call to action. As the National President of this org, I call on you to personally reach out to your local peace officers (sheriff’s office and/or police department) in whatever state you reside in, to express our condolences and our support in the wake of the horrid mass shooting of police officers in Dallas, Texas last night. Please take the time to personally deliver a card and some flowers, letting them know that they are in our prayers as we grieve with them and that we have their backs and stand ready, willing, and able to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with them against such evil terrorism.
If for any reason you truly cannot afford the flowers, please contact us here at national using our contact form, and we will help you get it done (so long as funds allow). Time is of the essence, so please act today.
Here is some suggested text to use, but feel free to adapt and make it your own:
To our brothers and sisters of the XYZ Police Department/County Sheriff’s Department:
As an organization comprised of a significant number of currently serving and former police officers, along with current and retired military, firefighters, EMTs, and other first responders, we stand by you and appreciate everything you do to keep our communities and families safe. We understand the dangers you face in these difficult times. Please know that as many of us are your current and former co-workers, we too feel the loss from the senseless shooting of police officers in Dallas, TX. If there is anything we can do to help you, just ask. As men and women with extensive training and experience, who have sworn the same oath you did, we are more than willing to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with you, or watch your six, anytime, anywhere, against any threat.
XYZ Town/County Oath Keepers
As I said, feel free to take that and make it your own. Please see the below examples of cards and flowers already delivered by our Dallas leader, Michele Imburgia, and also by Maryland Oath Keeper Life Member, “Navy Jack.” I recommend that, along with the card and flowers, you provide your local police with your contact information (including HAM radio, if you have it) so that if they ever do need your assistance, they know how to reach you fast. This is all the more important if you are a chapter leader.
It is vitally important that we Oath Keepers lead the way in reaching out to our local police and our community, to help them tear down the intentionally created walls of separation between the people and the police, so we can all stand united against terrorism and in support of the Constitution we all swore an oath to defend. This nation is now under a relentless Fourth Generation Warfare assault, intent on dividing and conquering us along racial lines, class lines, and by pitting the police against the people, and the people against the police, and all in the name of causing chaos and fear to justify the final destruction of our Constitution. Please see my comments here.
“Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.” – Thomas Paine
CALL TO PHYSICAL ACTION
I also call on your to physically step up, in your community, and stand united with your local police and your brother veterans to stand vigilant in mutual defense and defense of your community against any acts of terrorism, by any foe, be they hate filled racist cop killers or hate filled Islamic terrorists. As an association of both current serving and veteran police, military, firefighters, EMTs, SAR, and other first responders with extensive training and experience, we have a unique capability to help, and thus also an extra duty to do so.
On many occasions across the nation, Oath Keepers have already successfully acted as “force multipliers” for local police against violent criminals and potential terrorists. That is something we must now do in every community in a systematic, well coordinated fashion, to directly back up and protect our peace officers, and help them to protect our community. it is time for us to step up, as the Founders intended, and do what is “necessary for the security of a free state.”
For the Republic,
Oath Keepers Dallas Texas leader, Michele Imburgia (who is also on our national BOD) personally delivered the following message in a card, along with flowers, to Dallas Area Rapid Transit authority (DART) officers today, and is also delivering a similar card with flowers to the Dallas PD:
Here is the text of the handwritten expression of our condolences:
To our brothers and sisters of the Dallas Police Department and the Dallas Area Rapid Transit authority:
As an organization comprised of a significant number of currently serving and former police officers, along with current and retired military, firefighters, EMTs, and other first responders, we extend our sincerest condolences to the families, friends and coworkers of those officers killed and injured in the senseless shooting last evening. We stand by you and appreciate everything you do to keep our communities and families safe. Please know that as many of us are your current and former co-workers, we too feel your loss. God speed and God Bless the men and women of the Dallas PD and DART. If there is anything we can do in your time of need, just ask. We are more than willing to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with you, or watch your six, anytime, anywhere, against any threat.

Here is a photo of the flowers Michele delivered to DART officers:
Thank you, Michele for doing that. It is greatly appreciated. And let us know if there is anything we can do to help the police and the people of Dallas in this trying time. – Stewart
FROM “NAVY JACK” IN MARYLAND:
The following image are of the flowers delivered to the Maryland State Police this morning. I delivered them with a handwritten note on the back of the card below, thanking them for their service and keeping our community safe. I referenced the tragedy in Dallas as the reason we wanted to express our appreciation. The original images are attached. The gesture was extremely well received by the Maryland State Police Watch Captain and the flowers with the card are on display in their main lobby. I have flowers/cards still to deliver to the Baltimore City Police, the Baltimore County Sheriff and the Anne Arundel County Sheriff.
(God bless you Jack! Thanks for doing that – Stewart)
