Vice-President Dick Cheney and his wife Lynne signed the 100,000th Christmas card collected by Move America Forward for our military in Iraq and Afghanistan during our 'Heroes for the Holidays Tour' across the country, stopping in 40 cities to rally support for the troops AND their mission.
We weren't sure that we could collect that many, despite our hopes and boasts. In the end, Americans who love our men and women overseas sent us over 200,000 and still counting!
Gold Star Mom Debbie Lee, whose son Marc Alan Lee was the first Navy Seal killed in action in Iraq, is with our delegation in Baghdad. Please see our website www.moveamericaforward.com for reports on their journey, and the first-hand stories of how the 'surge' is succeeding.
General David Petraeus launched the change in strategy in July , and now we are seeing the pay-off.
While in Kuwait, where thousands of troops are transiting into or out of Iraq, I interviewed hundreds of soldiers who gave very specific examples of this stunning reversal.
As Americans, we can be very proud of what we are accomplishing--even the liberal media is accepting this truth!
With gratitude to everyone who contributed to our efforts --
Chairman, Move America Forward
