You’ll notice the new button under the Winds banner. It will be there for the next week. It’s a program launched by ‘America Supports You’, a DoD-sponsored organization that attempts to engage citizens in activities supporting troop welfare and morale.
This Thanksgiving, they have set up a program to allow us to send a text message of support to the troops.
Look, you can agree or disagree with the policies and decisions that led to the war. You can believe that we need to push the war forward, keep it going, or end it and bring the troops home.
But young men and women are following orders, far from home, often in danger – and it seems incumbent on us to remind them that we care about them individually, and that we’re aware of what they are doing for us.
Grab your cell, and send a few nice words.
