Both Bush Presidents Urge Support
for Care Packages for our Troops

We our honored that both President George H. W. Bush and President George W. Bush have joined the Move America
Forward effort to provide a record number of care packages for our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.  They join a growing list of participants as MAF is putting the finishing touches on our lineup for the fast approaching “Honor Their Service” troopathon.

Last year MAF shipped a record breaking 12,000 care packages to the troops and to break that record just one year later, MAF needs a historic effort from our supporters and from the American people. With the support of our 41st and 43rd presidents, our effort is obviously catching the attention of some power players!

But no matter what celebrities and diplomats we get support from, it’s up to you to help us reach our goal. We still have much work to before our June 25th deadline and we need to get as many care package orders as we can this week!  Please join with the presidents and sponsor a care package for the troops.
President George H.W. Bush and President George W. Bush were steadfast in support for our troops. President H.W. led our troops into the first Gulf War to intervene when Saddam Hussein invaded the weaker Kuwait to seize their rich oil fields. Our heroic men and women liberated the country of Kuwait and drove Saddam’s forces back to Baghdad after 100 days of bombing and a brilliant 3 day land campaign.

First Gulf War - President George H.W. Bush Greets Troops

George W. Bush was our president on September 11, 2001 when terrorists attacked the World Trade Center and murdered 3,000 innocent Americans. President Bush vowed never to let terrorists attack Amer
ica again. He led the nation through the most difficult times, through wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and thanks to his policies and leadership, and the professionalism and skill of our brave troops, no terrorists have been able to carry out a successful attack on U.S. soil in the 7 years since 9/11.

President George W. Bush Greeted by Troops at Al Asad Air Base in Iraq

Bush 41 and 43 were both war time presidents.  They had to send our military men and women into battle, and they carried the weight of that decision with them. They both loved our military and the sacrifices our troops make. Here is an excerpt from a letter written by President George W. Bush to Move America Forward, expressing his support for our troops.

“I appreciate all those who support our military and their families, and I am grateful to the staff of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library for hosting this important event.  Your efforts pay tribute to the enduring accomplishments of these American heroes and help us honor their service.”

Thanks for the bump!

From a recent MAF Troopathon Email:

Right now - as you read this email - there are over 100,000 men and women of the United States military who are serving overseas in Iraq & Afghanistan.  They were not drafted to serve, they signed up on their own free will to serve the country they love and respect.

No matter what your views are in regards to the "War on Terror" I know you share my deep admiration and respect for these men and women of our military.

It's gotten to the point in this country where the service of these men and women is often taken for granted.  Our troops' Commander in Chief, Barack Hussein Obama, doesn't seem to have a clear vision about the role of our troops and their missions.  At times he's even blown them off or disrespected them - more concerned with photo-ops and his own personal ambition, rather than the welfare of our military men and women serving in a hot war zone.

Can you imagine that?  Stop for a moment and put yourself in the shoes of our military men and women... RIGHT NOW they are in a foreign land away from their families, friends and loved ones, and they serve under a Commander in Chief who has an ill-defined sense of what they should be doing and what value they serve.

Some of our troops will never come home from their missions.  Others of them will forever be impacted by the dark side of war that comes as part of the price some pay in serving this nation bravely and honorably.

Well, we here at Move America Forward are asking YOU as a fellow patriotic American to join with us in sending this message to our troops:  We will ALWAYS appreciate you and your service... we will NEVER take for granted the risks you face or those who have given their lives in service to this nation.

The troops are very grateful. Click the graphic in the main body of this thread to send a package or two to our brave Military in the Mideast!

Isn't that a great name???

More guests!

Only 14 Days Left to Break the Record of Most Care Packages for Our Troops in Iraq and Afghanistan

We are extremely excited to announce that both Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Kylie Williams will be participating in Move America Forward’s annual Troopathon “Honor Their Service.” Elisabeth Hasselbeck is the single conservative voice on the immensely popular show “The View,” while beauty queen Kylie Williams was not only winner of the Miss Florida 2007 pageant, but also created her own charity called “Realistic Support for Our Troops.”

Both ladies will appear on our June 25th
webcast, which will stream LIVE from the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California, starting at 1 pm Pacific/4 pm Eastern!

MAF is bringing together celebrities, movie stars, talk radio hosts, political commentators and others like Kelsey Grammer, Jon Voight, Gary Sinise, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Sean Hannity and the rest of the guests on our impressive lineup to support our troops.

Regardless of who appears on the Tro
opathon, the end goal is to show our troops some REAL SUPPORT with tons of care packages filled with coffee, cookies, beef jerky and other goodies. Please show YOUR support for our troops!

Elisabeth Hasselbeck: A Pro-Troop
Supporter with Real Grit

Elisabeth Hasselbeck is a force to be reckoned with on “The View.” If there is one thing Elisabeth Hasselbeck is MOST famous for, it’s having the staying power to spend hours on the set of “The View” taking constant ridicule from the rest of the cast who outnumber her 4 to 1 and attack her for her conservative views on a daily basis. She has an enormous amount of courage to stand up to constant attacks

According to Matthew Felling, editor of Public Eye, Elisabeth Hasselbeck represents “an audience that the left just can’t crack: traditional, God-fearing red state women, well-intended, who have made up their mi
nds and won’t be easily persuaded.”

Kylie Williams: Fighting For
Those Who Fight For Us!

Kylie Williams, beauty queen and pro-troop activist, is yet another exciting addition to our already amazing lineup! In 2007, the Florida Department of Veteran Affairs named Williams “Official Ambassador for Veteran’s Advocacy,” which allows her to travel all over the state of Florida fighting for veterans rights, educating veterans on how to gain access to their benefits as well as visiting veterans in hospitals and homes.

During the 2007 Christmas holiday, Kylie Williams visited the troops at Guantanamo Bay with Move America Forward’s Debbie Lee and Melanie Morgan, pictured below with some of our troops.

We are overjoyed to have the support of such outspoken, strong women join our already amazing lineup! Won’t you add your support today?

Ann Coulter Joins Care Package Push

Conservative and Hollywood Stars Lining Up for 2009 Troopathon

Today we’re thrilled to announce that conservative author, columnist and media pundit Ann Coulter has signed on again this year to participate in our landmark webcast to raise funds for care packages for our troops.  With Ann, you can always count on her pinpoint aim to skewer those who defame our troops and their mission in Iraq and Afghanistan.

With the telethon 5 days away, all of the big names in the conservative media have been signing on to our historic effort to send the largest shipment of care packages to US troops in history.

Not only have stalwarts like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Mark Levin joined in, but we have had the enthusiastic support from the conservative entrainment community as well, with such big stars as Jon Voight, Gary Sinise and Kelsey Grammer taking part.  

The large and growing all-star list of participants is staggering. These celebrities and patriotic leaders have told us how dedicated they are to helping our brave troops and how excited they are to be joining this project.  To beat our record care package shipment from last year, We need you to sign up today

The packages we send are stuffed with great items the troops have requested, from Oreo cookies and Gatorade to lip balm and bug repellant, and that our troops really appreciate. Every box is packed with love by our dedicated volunteers who make sure every one gets the care and attention befitting our United States Military men and women.

Best of all, each package comes with a personal message of support from you.  Please put your message in the comments section of the online order form, and we’ll print it on a card that’s the last thing we put in the box and the first thing a soldier, sailor, airman, marine, or coastie will see at mail call.

It means SO much to our guys and gals spending long and difficult deployments half a world away from friends of family when they receive your packages. Please make that gesture today and let’s show our troops that our support for them is unwavering.

Mark Levin and Dennis Miller: More Radio Giants Join MAF Care Package Effort

Celebrities are lining up for Move America Forward’s Troopathon, which is now ONLY 6 DAYS away and the excitement is growing every day.  We just nailed down time slots for radio legends Mark Levin and Dennis Miller who will be joining the effort to send history’s largest care package to our troops serving overseas.

MAF has already kicked off the presales event to boost the number of care packages sponsored for our troops in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay. Radio hosts like Mark Levin, Dennis Miller, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Dr. Laura Schlessinger, Laura Ingraham, and more have teamed up to assist us in raising the money for these care packages.

Join Mark and Dennis in supporting our
troops by sending a care package.

Radio hosts, especially Levin, Miller and other conservative talkers like them, have always stood by our troops.  When anti-war, and anti-American radicals shout and riot in the streets in an attempt to besmirch our troops to fulfill a political agenda, Dennis Miller defended our troops, just as Move America Forward and our supporters were out on the streets defending the reputation of our brave men and women in uniform.

 “If you're in a peace march and the guy next to you has a sign that says Bush is Hitler, forget the peace thing for a second and beat his [rear],” Said Miller once, in an interview with Jay Leno.

Mark Levin has been a voracious defender of our troops, and their missions in the war on terror from the very beginning. He has always understood and communicated the reasons why America must be resolute in supporting our troops: because our troops are defending us from attack by radical Islamic jihadists.

“When you [ MSNBC Host Keith Olbermann ] attack the American soldier who is on the battlefield, facing down this enemy, while you’re in your air conditioned office demanding caffeine-free coffee getting your shoes polished …. Then you pick a fight with all of us, all of us who believe in the American G.I., regardless of party affiliation.”

-Mark Levin on his Radio Show

Send a care package now to show your gratitude and support.

Levin gained massive popularity this year when he released his book “Liberty and Tyranny” which shot up first place on Amazon’s best sellers list. It currently remains at #2, bested only by Glenn Beck’s recently released book. Liberty and Tyranny has remained in Amazon’s top 100 list for an incredible 122 days and Mark’s book signing events generated lines long enough to stretch around the block.
We are extremely lucky to have to support of leaders such as Mark Levin and Dennis Miller! They understand why our troops are so important to our nation. Our troops are doing a dangerous job, putting their own lives on the line, to protect us at home. Please don’t forget about them.

Our packages allow sponsors to send a personal note to our troops, an important message that tells them we haven’t forgotten them just because we don’t see them every day in the mainstream media.

While accurate, the description of Mark Levin’s book is a little misleading.

It is the big dog in the fight, being on the top seller list for 122 straight days. The Glenn Beck book came out just a couple of weeks ago and has an initial surge.

But, no question at this point that Mark’s book is #1.

I saw Mark Levin on Hannity's show the other nite, and he said there are a million of his books in print, and (I forget the exact number) 6 or Seven Hundred Thousand sold!

I haven't read Mark's book yet, but I know it is probably the most important book out there for conservatives these days.

A Conservative Manifesto was needed, I have read some of the points he covered there.
