A Call For America to Stand April 13th, 2007.
by Gold Star Mother Debbie Lee
This letter is a call to action to the silent majority in America. It is a dangerous time in the history of our country and we can no longer quietly sit back on our apathetic rears and hope that someone else will speak for us, or that someone else will make a difference. Many Americans have listened to the lies of the liberal media and have adopted a defeated attitude that they can’t make a difference. I just completed a “These Colors Don’t Run” tour with Move America Forward that conducted rallies in 25 cities across America and ended in Washington DC, on the 17th of March.
Essay Contest Announcement April 13th, 2007.
First, let me apologize for hijacking the site for shameless self promotion, but I have permission!

VFW’s 2006 “Teacher of the Year” April 19th, 2007.
Via email, April 2007:
Back in September of 2005, on the first day of school, Martha Cothren, a social studies school teacher at Robinson High School in Little Rock , did something not to be forgotten. On the first day of school, with permission of the school superintendent, the principal and the building supervisor, she took all of the desks out of the classroom.They Have NamesApril 19th, 2007.
How often do we hear this phrase in the news?
“Two soldiers were killed today…”
“Also killed was a U.S. soldier.”
The media, so quick to tell us about another death, misses the point. These soldiers and Marines have families and life stories and likes and dislikes and dreams.
They have names.
