Cookies and hankies for our "wounded warriors"

How Move America Forward supports the troops.

Published August 29, 2007 3:31PM (EDT)

The pro-war group Move America Forward is launching a "Fight for Victory Tour" this weekend. The Fight for Victory Tour doesn't involve any actual fighting, mind you; it's just a group of war supporters driving in a caravan across this great land of ours, with "27 pro-troop rallies" along the way and a "Giant Pro-Troop Rally" in Washington Sept. 15.

You can help out by sending $30 to the group to buy a "Wounded Warrior Care Package" for its members to deliver to injured soldiers at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center.

What does $30 buy for a wounded warrior? Some "premium 'House of Jerky' beef jerky, deluxe shortbread cookies imprinted with the insignias of the various branches of the U.S. military, an assortment of candy bars, 'Heck if It Were Easy France Could Do It!' camouflaged handkerchiefs, puzzle books, and flag pins." Oh, right, and a personal note from you, saying just how much you care.
