You may not know that Salon continues to support the troops by providing a free Salon Premium membership to anyone with a military e-mail address. We started the program last year, when we uncovered the fact that Rush Limbaugh's radio show is a staple of American Forces Radio. Since the early days of the program we've signed up more than 400 soldiers.
But traffic to the free-membership link has diminished in recent months, as the memory of the offer faded. So we wanted to remind our readers: If you're a member of the military, it's as easy as entering your active .mil e-mail address here. If you know of a soldier who may like to sign up, please pass along this url to him or her, https://sub.salon.com/mil/.
If you are already a Salon Premium member, you can give a gift to a member of the military or a friend instead. Maybe you know someone who needs our clear-eyed reporting on the war. Salon Premium members can give gift memberships at a discount. Or, become a Salon Premium member today if you are not one already.
