Gentle Reminder to Thank Our Troops



Heyyah! Everyone, it's time again to wish our troops overseas our eternal thanks, and a Merry Christmas!


At this terrific site, we can type out a sincere message of genuine thanks to the men and women who keep us safe here in the United States. It only takes a few minutes, but maybe, just maybe, your message of support and thanks will be just the message of strength some forlorn, homesick troop needs to read.


AMERICA SUPPORTS YOU (dot) MIL Click the right-hand buttons labeled "Thank The Troops", and "Letters To The Wounded".


The topic "Letters to the Wounded", is a brand new feature, and it sure seems to be popular! And NO Wonder! These fine men and women have paid a high price in keeping the United States the free republic that she is. Each wounded soldier, Marine, sailor and airman loves this country so damn much, that they willingly defend her, and serve us all. And now, their lives will take a different journey than they may have expected. For you, and for me.


Elsewhere at America Supports You, is an area where our troops write back their thanks. How is that for humbling? They thank us~! A selection of their thank-yous is copied here:

"I would like to thank each and every one of you for you support. And gratitude, not only for myself but for all of us here. Without your support we would not have what it takes to do what we must. This is my 2nd tour of Iraqi Freedom and 3rd tour in the region. I am with the 600th TC out of Omaha. And would welcome any and all that wish to communicate."

SSG L. JACKSON, OMAHA, Neb.

"It is great to see the support from our family and friends, every service member that has been overseas knows it can be rough when morale gets low, but we know we will all be coming home soon. My heart goes out to my friends and other fellow service members in the middle east right now. We miss you guys and thanks for everything."
S. McAleer / AGAN / US Navy, Cleveland, Ohio


"Thank you for the support, it means a lot and it helps me to get through this 15 months. I will retrun safe to see my beautiful state again."
PFC D. Feuerborn, Active Army, Ponca City, Okla.



The link to America Supports You site is always in the margin over here >>>,
and there does not need to be a special reason, or a special season, to remember these fine individuals, and say "Thank You!"
