The executive director of the Coffee Strong group, Jorge Gonzalez, said it doesn't want to give the wrong impression. He says it doesn't want to antagonize the military or condemn any individual soldier.
The group operates a coffee house near the base and calls itself pro-soldier, anti-war. Gonzalez said Coffee Strong may do something about the Afghan shooting later with more planning.
Gonzalez said there had been an overwhelming response to the initial announcement for a vigil and march to the nearby "Freedom Bridge" -- an Interstate 5 overpass where there are frequent military-related demonstrations.
