Day of The Deployed

HOEVEN CALLS FOR NATIONAL “DAY OF THE DEPLOYED”
TO RECOGNIZE SOLDIERS’ SACRIFICES

Soldiers’ Angels Thanks Hoeven for Introducing Senate Resolution

Soldiers’ Angels gratefully announces the support of Senator John Hoeven for a national Day of the Deployed.  SenatorHoeven recently introduced S. Res. 253 in the U.S. Senate to designate Oct. 26, 2011 as Day of the Deployed in recognition of the sacrifices of U.S. servicemen and women currently deployed around the world.  Today he called on his fellow Senators to co-sponsor the resolution.

In 2006, Soldiers’ Angels asked then-Governor Hoeven to sign the first ever Day of the Deployed proclamation in honor of deployed warriors from North Dakota.  A growing nationwide movement, Day of the Deployed has been celebrated every October 26 since 2006 with events, parties, governors’ proclamations and pomp and circumstance in support of our nation’s deployed troops and their families.  Americans have used the Day to reaffirm their patriotism and allegiance to our flag and country, and to honor our brave men and women in uniform who are selflessly putting their lives on the line to protect and preserve our way of life.

Soldiers’ Angels encourages patriotic Americans to support S. Res. 253 by communicating the importance of this national day of honor to their state senators by letter, email or phone call requesting they co-sponsor S. Res. 253 with Senator John Hoeven.  Contact info for all senators is available at www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm

The Day of the Deployed proclamation has received the support of 40 governors across the nation who signed their own state proclamations honoring service members in the state they governed.  Soldiers’ Angels is proud to see this declaration of troop support honored state by state, but believes it is time to make Day of the Deployed a national day of honor and`welcomes Sen. Hoeven’s role in bringing that about.

October 26 is a day of honor originated by Soldiers’ Angels andrecognizing our deployed service members and their families.  Soldiers' Angels is a volunteer-led 501(c)(3) nonprofit with hundreds of thousands of volunteers providing aid and comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, veterans and their families.

The US foreign military presence is generally a controversial phenomenon both legally and morally. Patriotic platitudes aside, US soldiers' deployment abroad is abominable. "The Day of the Deployed" baby killers? Boxes of chocolates to tattooed teen aged psychopaths deranged for life from killing the elderly, women, and children in a remote foreign country most Americans don't even know the name of? Douchebags!

Usually I don't respond with such a short sentence as that, but it really fits someone of you level of incredible idiocy. There is no point in showing you how incredibly far from reality you apparently live. That reservation is now sitting in Iraq or Afghanistan while you armchair General in some Western European country. You obviously aren't from America because if you were you would have the semi-sense to know that a rock is smarter than the uneducated comments of a barely literate crack baby as yourself. You are a nobody and I only feel the need to respond to something that decreases my IQ by just reading it, that in the faint hope of using my brain to respond, I negate the mini-retard I have become by allowing my eyes to read something so mentally deficient. Stop existing, because you are just a waste of precious oxygen.

I am sure someone like Victor Davis Hanson could provide an intellectual, cerebral, logical argument to the vacant, ignorant, moronic, idiotic comments of Wizz Age but would probably just agree with U can and leave it at that.

Excellent idea. Will contact my two senators on this idea. Unfortunately, a washed-up hippy (troll alert) has decided to attack our men and women who serve. One may not agree with the reasons to be serving in foreign countries, but do not attack the men and women who do. They are better people than you Sergius.

Lately there has been some really nasty comments on various Blogs and sites about our men and women in uniform serving overseas around the world. I am a Disabled Vietnam-Era U.S.NAVY VETERAN. I have to agree there are maybe a few bad apples out there serving our country but for the most part, the majority are sacrificing the best years of their lives in the service of our Country and it's Freedom's. If we didn't have these young men and women volunteer there lives to protect our way of life over here we would probably not be a country of the freedoms we so enjoy each and every day. I am Proud to have served in the Armed Forces of these United States and will forever do what I can to preserve all that we cherish and love in this country. Enough said. William

lindh is the traitorous bastard sitting in a prison cell for 20 years. I'm not sure about his tattoos but I wish he had gotten one between the eyes. I think our "friend" segius is cut from the same cloth as johnny traitor.

dites une prière pour les guerriers américains courageux qui ont donné à la France sa liberté

Can't we all just tweet this, post to our Facebook accounts or.... actually go to our Senators' website to express our support and leave it at that.

If you have time to feed the troll and get in a flame war, you have time for all three of the above.
