Operation Gratitude

During an October 1967 week-end, as part of Operation Gratitude, there were pro-GI demonstrations in 75 cities, stretching from the middle of the Pacific Ocean to the Caribbean Sea and north to the Arctic Circle (Hawaii, Puerto Rico and Alaska.)  

In just the greater New York City area alone, hundreds of thousands took part. 

 

 NY Daily News,             Oct 23,1967 

But the parades, rallies and other shows of support for our troops were mostly ignored by news media except where they occurred.
