OBAMA ADMIN: LEON PANETTA SAYS TROOPS ARE IN DANGER OF BEING FORGOTTTEN
President Obama’s own Secretary of Defense admits that there is a disturbing trend in the public discourse recently that steers away from our troops and the war they are fighting in the Middle East, especially Afghanistan.
Despite the hard work of supporters like you, we’re just not getting the message out enough, and the news media are not reporting as they did in years past. Instead, they are ignoring the war in deference to politics and speculation about elections that are still months away - even though we have troops in harm’s way NOW!                                                                                                                                                                                   
DON’T LET OUR TROOPS BE FORGOTTEN! SEND A CARE PACKAGE TO A SOLDIER IN NEED TODAY! 
Please send a care package today and show your support for our men and women serving over in Afghanistan                                            
SEC DEF CONCERNED PUBLIC ’TUNED OUT’ OBAMA and ROMNEY said to be IGNORING WAR
                                     
Neither Mitt Romney nor Paul Ryan mentioned the war in Afghanistan during their big running mate roll-out in Virginia Saturday.  Barack Obama gives it only a brief mention in his own stump speeches.

Leon Panetta seems to have had enough.

“I realize that there are a lot of other things going on around this country that can draw our attention, from the Olympics, to political campaigns to droughts, to some of the tragedies we’ve seen in communities around the country,” the defense secretary said at Tuesday’s Pentagon press briefing. “I thought it was important to remind the American people that there is a war going on.”

Soldiers and their families need no reminder.  There are 84,000 U.S. troops in Afghanistan today, and the threat level for them is high: 41 were killed last month.

But as the Brookings Institute’s Thomas Mann explains, “The public has tuned out Afghanistan and it is unlikely they can be re-engaged in the next three months. They have no conception of the myriad of issues facing policy makers and those on the ground in Afghanistan and are almost certain to remain uninformed, whatever the candidates might do or say.”

WE CAN’T LET OUR TROOPS BE FORGOTTEN! 
We know elections are important. We’re aware that there are dozens of war veterans out there running for office who need your help between now and November, and we hope you can help them.

But at the same time, do not forget that we still have almost 90,000 troops still serving in Afghanistan. They need our help more than anyone else!                                                
Help our troops by sending a care package of support full of goodies that will boost morale and provide some much needed food and personal care items!       
Each package includes delicious goodies like gourmet coffee, cookies, beef jerky, trail mix, and Gatorade, as well as helpful personal items like eye drops, deodorant, wet wipes, and most important of all, a note from YOU!
