Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think the idea was to get the Veterans, who held Smedley Butler in great esteem and (like everyone else) were having a hard time during the early 30's but may have had some particular issues with the government at the time. That may be where the 500,000 figure came from.

Can the last politician to go out the revolving door please turn the lights off?
