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.
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 didnâ€™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 â€œhacktivistsâ€ 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. Troopathon.org
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 care packages, however they get there, is the point.
God comfort the families of those 7 lost today in Afghanistan. My original Troopathon 2012 information is here.
