Many of America's most
decorated war heroes from Iraq and Afghanistan hit our nations
highways with the non-partisan message of progress and freedom from
coast to coast.
The Vets for Freedom National Heroes Tour covered 8.000 miles,
making 21 stops in 14 states, spreading the message of support for
our troops by honoring their commitment, and rallying the country
to complete the missions in Iraq and Afghansitan.
Although the tour has ended the battle to allow our men and women
in uniform to succeed in the missions in Iraq and Afghanistan has
not. This is a critical time for our country. We need to continue
to let Americans, lawmakers, and the media know that the sacrifices
of our brave military and the dramatic success they have achieved
cannot continue to go unnoticed or unrecognized. Even after the
testimony of the progress occurring in Iraq, there are still those
that refuse to acknowledge that a safe and stable Iraq is
attainable and vital to the security of our world.
As we continue to spread this message Vets for Freedom would like
to thank all those that joined us on the tour to show their
support. We especially want to thank Jim Hansen, Jeremiah Workman,
Steve Russell, Tom Parks, Kate Norley, Marcus Luttrell and David
Bellavia for taking the time out of their schedules to share their
stories with people across the country.
