Fighting the good fight

For those who are tired of this goofiness...

and for those who genuinely support our troops fighting overseas, please visit Families United for Our Troops and Their Mission. This grassroots organization has recently been very active in countering Cindy Sheehan and her band of tinfoil troublemakers by giving the "other" families a voice (including Diane & Von Ibbotson, whose son died in the same battle that took the life of Casey Sheehan).

The following is from their "About Us" page:

Families United for Our Troops and Their Mission is a grassroots coalition of Gold Star families, veterans, families with loved-ones in harms way and Americans that share a deep appreciation our men and women in uniform and support them in their efforts to make America safer by winning the War On Terror.

Collectively we will ensure that the sacrifices of our courageous warriors and continue to make are not in vain, and that the heroic soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines who have been charged with such a vital mission will be given the support they need to complete their mission.

Families United for Our Troops and Their Mission provides a means for our Gold Star Families, who have lost loved ones in the defense of our nation, to find solace in each other's company, and know that their love, admiration and support for our armed forces is shared by the overwhelming majority of Americans despite the media attention to a small, albeit vocal, minority.

We want all the friends and families of our soldiers to know that we share their vision of finishing the incredibly vital task at hand and look forward to welcoming them home when the inevitable victory is achieved.

To our heroic military men and women, and their families, we offer a humble and especially sincere, "Thank You".
