We Just Support Our Troops
ConnectFriend Support Our Troops at All Costs
As the political arena heats up with conjecture pro and con on the war in Iraq we are reminded not to forget the victims
of the conflict. Early in the beginning there were stories circulating in the media about weapons of mass destruction
being moved from Iraq to Syria to hide them from the NATO inspections. President George W. Bush and Vice President Cheney
informed us of Saddam's stockpiles of nuclear and biological weapons and how we needed to stop him from using them against
the U.S. or Israel. There is no doubt that Saddam committed crimes against his people and needed to be removed from
power in order to stop him. Now years into the war the media grows skeptical of the reasons why the United States
declared war on terror. Through all of this hype we have to remember our troops.
Our troops are putting their lives on the line day in and day out defending the fundemental rights that our country
was founded on. With deployments getting longer families are being torn apart and the divorce rates in the military
are higher than those of non-military families. Military families are slipping behind in financial ruin as benefits
dwindle. Our troops and their families need help. There are many foundations and causes that attempt to offset some
of the stresses that todays military families are faced with. That is why it is so important to ConnectFriend to
give back. Each dollar that our users spend on services here go toward covering the operating expenses associated with
providing free video conferencing for active military.
We all have to put our political feelings aside and do what is right for our country. It is counter-productive
to point the finger. Rather, we need to put on our humanitarian hats and remember what our soldiers who are so far
away face an enemy without question so that we can enjoy our freedom. Being able to see and hear their loved ones
is a blessing. We have created a family portal that gives them the ability to see pictures from home, watch videos and
listen to audio clips from loved ones, chat live in private text chatrooms and use webcams to see and hear their families
live over the internet. Won't you join us to help keep this service free for our troops.
