I'm not trying to persuade Anyone to join moveon.org. But I Do care about our returning veterans and think the Wounded Warrior organization is Worthy of our support. So Please read below.
Dear MoveOn members,
After almost nine years, the loss of more than 4,400 of my fellow American soldiers
and countless Iraqi civilian lives, and at a cost of $800 billion that was badly
needed at home, the War in Iraq is over.
Finally, the troops have come home, where they belong.
As an Army Reservist, I'm part of a brother and sisterhood. We look out for each
other during good times and bad. The mission has been accomplished, not because we're
leaving Iraq, but because our troops committed themselves to their country and have
served the people of the United States to the best of their abilities.
Right or wrong, our nation sent these troops to war.
Our military men and women have done their duty and for that they deserve our thanks.
Now, my fellow veterans need our support.
The Wounded Warrior Project is dedicated to helping the thousands of wounded warriors
returning home from the current conflicts and their families.
Will you chip in whatever you can afford during this season of giving as a tax-deductible
contribution to the Wounded Warrior Project?

The tag line of the Wounded Warriors is,
"The greatest casualty is being forgotten."
Now that the war is receding from the headlines and soldiers are reentering civilian
life, it's critical that this generation of troops is supported.
Veterans, suffering from wounds both seen and unseen, have returned to high unemployment.
Thousands are homeless or about to lose their homes. They need treatment for their
injuries and support transitioning to civilian life. In short, my fellow veterans
need our help.
One of the most important principles of the Wounded Warriors is their emphasis on
helping injured servicemembers aid and assist each other. That's how we ensure that
we will have the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded servicemembers
in our nation's history.
No matter whether you opposed the war or supported it,
will you help support our veterans by making a tax-deductible contribution to the
Wounded Warrior Project?
