27,000 Gather in Memorium

So the police and military always say it's about 10,000 that gather every year... but I heard from reliable sources that it is frequently in the neighborhood of 25-30,000. Last year's estimate was around 27K. It is a singing and loving movement the likes of which I have never seen before. The space we are in here is the access road/ main road into Ft. Benning. This sea of humanity stretches more than 1/2 mile back, and there are big speaker towers every so often so that people can hear what is happening.
