Did You See This? Troops Overseas Need Help NOW!
Move America Forward | September 19, 2012
Our troops are trying to recover from a deadly and frustrating weekend after another incident of “green-on-blue” attack and the Taliban attacking a remote US base and doing a lot of damage. We shouldn’t allow our troops to get discouraged by this bad news.
|A weekend of deadly attacks began Friday night, when 15 insurgents disguised in U.S. army uniforms killed two Marines, wounded nine other people and destroyed six Harrier fighter jets at a major U.S. base in the south, military officials said. On Saturday, a gunman in the uniform of a government-backed militia force shot dead two British soldiers in Helmand province in the southwest.
On Sunday, an Afghan police officer turned his gun on NATO troops at a remote checkpoint in the southern province of Zabul, killing four American service members, according to Afghan and international officials.

Don’t allow our troops to feel like we’ve forgotten about them. They may feel like they’re being ignored with the political campaigns dominating the news stories, but we can change that perception by showing an outpouring of our support!
Remind our troops that we still support them and their mission!
