Last year at this time I had the privilege of participating in the first of what has become an annual Internet "Troopathon" the purpose of which is to generate support for our troops who are fighting for our freedom while Congress dithers.
A year ago we were still dealing with Congressional Democrats who were calling our troops cold-blooded murderers and refusing to acknowledge that the offensive in Iraq called The Surge was paying huge dividends and our forces were on the verge of victory.
A year later, our guys have won so the media and the Congressional lemmings who bad mouthed them last year are ignoring them this year. So it is time to do another Internet "Troopathon."
The star-studded cast will be hosted by Melanie Morgan and Andrew Breitbart, with appearances by Michelle Malkin, Jon Voight, Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingraham, Mark Levin, Dick Cheney, George H. W. Bush, Elizabeth Hasselbeck, Kelsey Grammer and many others. Oh yeah, me too. I'll update the when and what time portions as we get closer to the date.
The troopathon website is www.troopathon.com. Pretty easy to remember.
If you would please participate you can help send care packages to our troops overseas by going here:http://www.thecampaignstore.com/store/default.asp?parentid=448&rname=bcom100hts
This will enable you to select an appropriate package of goods to send overseas to armed forces personnel who I can guarantee will appreciate the thought. And, your donation is TAX DEDUCTIBLE!
Take all the politics out of this, take away the media that won't say a single good thing about our troops, and consider for a moment how those troops feel, thousands of miles from home, in danger much of the time, doing a job that their critics neither understand nor appreciate - and usually don't have the guts to do themselves.
Any form of positive notice that they are not alone, and not forgotten, goes a long, long way and it doesn't take much of an effort on our part to help out. And it is TAX DEDUCTIBLE!
We have won in Iraq. Let me repeat that. We have WON IN IRAQ!!!
We now are at the onset of troop reductions in that country and a redeployment to Afghanistan. Again, I don't want to hear politics, I just want to support our military and I am asking everyone who reads this blog to help out too.
Remember, all you have to do is go to this site http://www.thecampaignstore.com/store/default.asp?parentid=448&rname=bcom100hts
and place an order.
Now that we have won in Iraq, let's go for broke and work for victory in Afghanistan too! And let's support the troops while we're at it. Remember, Troopathon, June 25.
