Ways You Can Support Our Troops
Rather than simply give my opinion of this great collection of letters from troops and their families, I offer a paraphrased excerpt from the Appendix of <B><U>Will They Ever Trust Us Again?</U></B>
Ways you can support our troops:
Homes for Our Troops at homesforourtroops.org - their mission is to build specially adapted homes for our severely disabled soldiers and their families.
The Wounded Warrior Project at unitedspinal.org - seeks to assist those men and women of our armed forces who have been severely injured.
Fisher House at fisherhouse.org - the Fisher House program is a private/public partnership that supports America's military in their time of need.
Give the gift of groceries at commissaries.com.
Send books. If you would like to send books to soldiers yourself, check out booksforsoldiers.com, where soldiers will post requests for books they'd like to get their hands on and all you have to do is pick a soldier to send a book to.
Operation Uplink at operationuplink.org - you can donate calling cards, so military families can stay in touch during their extended separations.
Operation Hero Miles at heromiles.org - through Operation Hero Miles, you can donate your airline miles to American soldiers so they can get home to visit with their families.
United Services Organization (USO) Care Packages - (703) 696-2628 - at usometrodc.org - you can donate money to the USO to help sponsor care packages sent to the troops through their site.
Armed Forces Emergency Relief Funds at afrtrust.org - helps the soldiers and families with paying for food and rent, medical and dental expenses, personal needs when pay is delayed, and funeral expenses.
Red Cross - helping military families at redcross.org. Contact your local Red Cross chapter and find out how you can help with military families in your area who are struggling in this time of war.
Thank you to all men and women in uniform for their service.

I am astounded by revewiers that have made the wild claim that Michael Moore "solicited" soldiers to send these letters. That makes me sick. Exactly what evidence does this reviewer have of this? Maybe his entire body of evidence consists of the Bush administration assertion that "every soldier serving in Iraq volunteered for this duty and is glad to be there". What a scurilous lie.
The book is fantastic and I highly recommend it.
