Afganistan: 7 Americans Killed - Please Participate Troopathon
Maggie's Notebook ^ | 6-9-12 | Maggie@MaggiesNotebook

Today the grim news that 7 American soldiers have died in Afghanistan. Six died in a roadside bombing, and a seventh in a separate attack. Taliban are claiming a victory with the IED deaths. You can remember our brave troops serving there right now, by sending a Care Package to the troops through Move America Forward's (MAF) Troopathon. The MAF site was hacked over the weekend by those professing to be "terrorist sympathizing hacktivists," but the site IS SECURE. Please do not let these cyber terrorists deter your donation to this important cause.

Donate here - care packages are already designed for you to choose from.

Your donation is tax deductible!

The devoted MAF staff has worked for days to make certain all information on their site is secure, and it is.

You may have noticed over the weekend, some of our e-mails had images not show up and links that didn’t work that affected our ability to raise money for care packages for the troops.

This was due to a cyber-attack from a group of self-proclaimed terrorist sympathizing “hacktivists” who target pro-military and pro-USA sites. These groups are mostly amateurs who see themselves as waging their jihad on the web. Only rarely are they ever actually affiliated with terrorist groups like al-Qaeda.

The big, big show, which is dedicated to the memory and work of Andrew Breitbart, will stream live on July 7th beginning at 4pm EST. Dennis Miller and Congressman Allen West will be a part of the show. Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingraham, former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton and Mark Levin will join-in in some way. New participants will be named daily.

About your donations: blogger teams are working hard to raise money for these care packages. We get paid nothing, but we do know in our hearts that we did everything we could to provide some comfort for the troops in these far away war zones, without family and friends, and the simple comforts that make our days so much more manageable.

So the blogger teams are competing against each other. If you donate through one of the links on this page or the Troopathon graphic in my left sidebar, my team, the Hot Air Steamers will get credit for it.

One team will be acknowledged as the group who enabled the most care packages to wing their way to our Military. I would love for it to be Hot Air Steamers, but sending a care package, however it get there, is the point.

Click here to view the items our troops need, and send your already prepared Care Package on its way. 

I still do not have the full list of team members, but I do know that Karen at The Lonely Conservative and Monoblogue are Hot Air Steamers.

Please donate through Hot Air Steamers to Troopathon 2012 in Remembrance of Andrew Breitbart

God comfort the families of those 7 lost today in Afghanistan. My original Troopathon 2012 information is here.

Under activism are two articles. One from the Omaha newspaper the other a statement from the father of fallen War Hero Hunter Hogan.....Both have materials dealing with 0 rules of engagment. Please help us bring attention to this urgent matter.

From Steve's statement

Here’s the statistics in Afghanistan for the 8 years of George Bush. The total killed in action under him is 660. Barack Obama in 3 years and 5 months the total killed in action is a total of 1,398.
Wounded under George Bush is 2,637 in 8 years. Wounded under Obama up to January 31st of this year is 11,529

Thanks for the information about Lance Cpl Hogan and his father’s comments. I have just posted. I hope BadBlue will pick it up. Did you see the slides of the funeral? Heartbreaking. I still have a lump in my throat.
