They Didn't Die In Vain
Half a world away, a contingent of brave young men and women are risking their lives to preserve Americaâ€™s freedom, liberty and safety.
They are the men and women of the United States military and in their service to Operation Iraqi Freedom they regularly come under attack from terrorist combatants who are intent upon undermining Americaâ€™s fight against terrorism.
Some times the brave men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces sacrifice their lives in this mission, and the mothers and fathers they leave behind here in the U.S. are known as Gold Star moms and dads.
These parents know their children did not die in vain, they know that their children stand as heroes who helped secure a future for generations to come that will not include the threat of terrorist attacks like we saw on September 11th, 2001.
You can imagine how painful it is for these Gold Star mothers and fathers to endure the constant negativity from the news media about the war in Iraq and the efforts by some in this country to undermine the mission that our troops are serving.
Well, these Gold Star families wish to be silent no longer. They wish to go to Iraq to send a message to the people of this nation â€“ and to the leaders of nations around the world: Their children did not die in vain. Their children gave their lives for a heroic and just cause that will help to spread a wave of peace and security throughout the Middle East for generations to come.
Move America Forward â€“ the nationâ€™s largest pro-troop grassroots organization is organizing a trip to take these Gold Star families to Iraq.
Help these Gold Star parents make this voyage to Iraq. Help them go thank those who still serve on the front lines today for helping to make sure the mission in Iraq is completed. Help them to see first hand the new Iraq that is rising up from the ashes of that brutal despotic regime of Saddam Hussein.
Many, if not most of these military families are in no position financially to afford a trip like this.
That's where Move America Forward comes in.
We are undertaking a fund-raising drive to off-set the costs of travelling to Iraq, so that the Gold Star Mom's and Dad's can see for themselves and report to the rest of the country what incredible sacrifices have been made in the name of freedom for the Iraqi people, and by extension, keeping America safe from another terrorist attack.
