Note from AFA President -- Our Magnificent Military

AFA members, Congressional staff members, civic leaders, DOCA members,

I write this note with a gamut of emotions. I just watched a 20 minute film that I wish every American would take the time to see. It first aired on the 10th anniversary of 9/11 … and is now online.

WOUNDED WARRIORS' RESILIENCE is a short documentary film about the extraordinary sacrifice and inspiring resilience of brave American men and women in uniform who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan since 9/11, been wounded, and are role models of the human capacity to overcome adversity.

On one hand, I am inspired by these heroes.  On the other, I am angry at the savagery of the terrorists who threaten our country and our way of life.  But I am also reminded that US and allied Airpower have allowed us to strike at the heart of our enemies while minimizing the exposure of our troops to IEDs, mines, snipers, and homicide bombers.  

Finally, I am proud of our rescue forces, our medics, and our tanker/airlift team to get our brave men and women out of harm’s way to the medical treatment they need.
I’d ask you to forward this note to as many people as you can.

And will we ever forget that the A war could have been ended if Defense Secy Rumsfeld had not had a snit against the CIA. (Because they were prepared to go into A and embarassingly the Army was not.) And then a completely unnecessary war in Iraq which killed and wounded our soldiers. Think of it. P Bush 2 went to war in Iraq without having a War Conference to get all views on the table. AND, we complain of the simplest mistakes which P Obama makes!

Surely you have something more important to report on than the plays on words done here?
