3 / 5 flag

Thanks to our Soldiers

Thanks to our Soldiers!!!

If you go to this web site, www.letssaythanks.com , you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will print it and it will be sent to a soldier that is currently serving in Iraq. You can’t pick out who gets it, but it will go to some member of the armed services.

How AMAZING it would be if we could get everyone we know to send one!!!

This is a great site.

Please send a card.

It is FREE and it only takes a second.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the soldiers received a bunch of these? Whether you are for or against the war, our guys and gals over there need to know we are behind them...

My flags in Afghanistan

My Flag in TQ - IRAQ

Big guy!!

Here are some photos from today with all the Marines who work at our main post office here in theater.. I thought it appropriate that they be the Marines who had the honor to sigh your flag. After we took the pictures I mailed it off to you!! SSgt Arredondo put a coin in with the flag for you!! Thanks Josh for all your support!!

SgtMaj Howard

Thank you for taking the time from your busy schedule to stop by and visit our Marines and for the opportunity to recognize two of our hard working warriors. We remind our Marines how much our work means to the morale of those we service, but it means even more coming from you.

Thank you for allowing us to be part of the flag signing and to thank Josh for his support. We thought we were just signing the flag for you, but when you explained who the flag was for, it truly honors us that you allowed us to be part of Josh’s life and our thoughts and well wishes are with him.

Thank you SgtMaj.

Semper Fidelis

Christian Soldier's Cross Project

My name is Daniel Wallace and I own the Christian Soldier's Cross Project website at http://www.PatrioticCross.com .

One of the customer options on my site is to have us send a Patriotic Christian Cross Necklace to the next service-member on our list. This option has proven to be very popular and, as a result, we are running out of service members to ship the crosses too.

I would like to ask for your help in helping us collect more names to replenish our database. You can add the names and FPO/APO addresses yourself, or you can take advantage or the "Help Promote Us" link on our main page to tell others about our site.

Soldiers names can be added to our database by going to http://www.PatrioticCross.com/addsoldier.php . They don't have to be currently deployed, but please make sure they are people who will appreciate both the Christian and Patriotic meaning of the cross.

Thank you in advance and God Bless!

Soldiers in Iraq Still Have Moral High Ground

The following link is to an ongoing "article" found onthe Fox News website. It is posted by U.S. Army Capt.Dan Sukman who is serving a one-year deployment toIraq. For previous entries and his bio, see theSoldier's Diary archives.

Quote from today's article… "We investigate and punish those responsible, while atthe same time, ensuring the accused receive fairtreatment and the capability to defend themselves. Youwill never see Al Qaeda punish a member for killingnumerous civilians, to include women and children.Call me crazy, but that is what makes us better, thatis what makes us the good guys."

Salute America's Heroes Mentioned on Good Morning America Today

The Coalition to Salute America's Heroes was mentioned in Good Morning America during a segment discussing two veterans who are swimming the Strait of Gibraltar to help raise money for wounded heroes.

Veterans David Broyles and Rush Vann have seen the horrors of war up close. Now, they are going to do something about it. They are preparing to make one of the world's most difficult swims: 12.5 miles in harsh conditions from the Spanish coast to Morocco. The swimmers say that the rough waters are a metaphor for the hardships wounded veterans face each day.

One of Salute America's Heroes' Soldier Spokesmen, J.R. Martinez, is interviewed in the segment.

Go to this link to watch the video or paste the following URL into your web browser: http://abcnews.go.com/Video/playerIndex?id=2177353.

HELP ~ Postage

We had a great turn out and a wonderful generous crowd at the Wellington Fair. We made a lot of money and we sent out almost 1000 boxes over the following week. However the IRS took up a collection for us and we got a lot of great donations of items from them. We packed and packed and we now have almost 500 more boxes ready to go out. We NEED POSTAGE! Any help any of you can give would be greatly appreciated. Even postage for one box would be some help. These are mostly flat rates. Flat rates cost $8.10 each to mail. We can no longer have the "adopt a box" at HyVee in Blue Springs since they had a lady complain we should not be sending care packages.. tax dollars was enough. The manager refused to allow us any more adopt a box days due to this. He said he did not want to loose one customer. I tried to reason the fact 400 -500 customers thought it was great and participated only one complained and it was a political complaint. He still refused. ( He lost me as a customer and I bought a lot of items there for the troops. I hope that lady spends enough to make up for it) I still shop and endorse all the other HyVee's in our area. They have been very supportive to us and the troops! Unfortunately no other sub stations at any other HyVee or in the Metro area handles custom labels. So we need stamps or $ to purchase stamps or postage for these boxes. You can buy 2 of the $4.05 stamps to place on the box or a multiple of stamps of different denominations to place on for , or help with, the postage.. anything will help ! In August we will start collecting for XMAS for these troops and it will be a much harder task. We already have Xmas trees and decorations to send. We will be looking at more then 5000 boxes and postage alone about $40,000 between Sept and Nov just to get a tree and some decorations to each unit and a stocking with goodies to each of the guys and gals. We already have several groups collecting items for us. However none of the government groups are allowed to collect postage or currency. Seems according to the government stamps are currency. and per government policy they can not ask for donations of currency of any kind for us. .. So we really need postage now and a lot more soon ! ANYTHING will help ! Pass the info to friends, co workers, family and who ever you can think of...

They can donate by mail at USTS PO BOX 782 Blue Springs, Mo 64013 or on the web site ( secured) www.ustroopsupport.org or call me for more info ! 816-224-4729

Thanks !

Boot Murtha


The Murtha Alert

A message from CAPT Larry BaileyPresident, Vets For The Truth
July 12, 2006

Fellow Veteran,

I'm fed up. Fed up with the disrespect that is shown our military by the liberals. Fed up with the accusations of the left-wing politicians against our own military men and women in Iraq.

This current situation has the smell and feel of what happened to my generation when we were winning a war in a place called Vietnam, and I don't like it. Nor do a lot of my fellow veterans.

That is why we, veterans of the "Kerry Lied" Rally in Washington, DC in 2004, have once again banded together to fight a man for making false and treasonous statements; in this case, it's John ("Jihad Jack") Murtha, who accuses our own US Marines of "...murdering innocent civilians in cold blood."

Most of us are not from the 12th Congressional District, but we ARE American veterans, and we would like you vets in the 12th District to join us in "redeploying" John Murtha from Washington, where he is doing inestimable harm to our forces in Iraq, just like "Hanoi John" Kerry did to us in Vietnam.

Help us! PLEASE!

Help us get the word out about what John Murtha has done and is doing to hinder the War on Terror. Help us communicate with the thousands of veterans in the 12th District by providing them with information Murtha doesn't want them to have.

Please go to www.bootmurtha.com and, using either PayPal or the post office address, help us reach our goal of $7750 to pay for the letter we're going to send to every one of those vets.

Or you can send via regular mail:

VFTT / Boot Murtha Campaign
P.O. Box 291
Chocowinity, NC 27817

Pennsylvania Office:
VFTT / Boot Murtha Campaign
P.O. Box 462
Charleroi, PA 15022

With your help, we WILL redeploy John Murtha!

Thank you very much.

Young VS Old :)

Here's a quote from a government employee who witnessed a recent

interaction between an elderly woman and an antiwar protester in a Metro
station in DC:

"There were protesters on the train platform handing out pamphlets on the evils of America. I politely declined to take one.

"An elderly woman was behind me getting off the escalator and a young
(20ish) female protester offered her a pamphlet, which she politely declined.

"The young protester put her hand on the old woman's shoulder as a
gesture of friendship and in a very soft voice said, "Lady, don't you
care about the children of Iraq?"

"The old woman looked up at her and said, '
Honey, my father died in France during World War II, I lost my husband in Korea, and a son in Vietnam. All three died so you could have the right to stand here and bad mouth our country.
If you touch me again, I'll stick this umbrella up your backside and open it.
