Appeal For Courage

Check out the Appeal for Courage:

This site is an Appeal For Redress in support of our mission in Iraq.

An Appeal For Redress is an authorized means for active duty military to submit a grievance to Congress. It can be signed by Active Duty, Reserve, or National Guard military personnel.

It is authorized by DoD Directive 1325.6 and DoD Directive 7050.6.
The wording of the appeal is as follows:
As an American currently serving my nation in uniform, I respectfully urge my political leaders in Congress to fully support our mission in Iraq and halt any calls for retreat. I also respectfully urge my political leaders to actively oppose media efforts which embolden my enemy while demoralizing American support at home. The War in Iraq is a necessary and just effort to bring freedom to the Middle East and protect America from further attack.
You can expect this to get exactly zero media coverage, but it's a great idea by noble soldiers who understand that their mission is right and just and who realize that most of their fellow soldiers want to be in Iraq fighting for freedom.

If you are Active Duty, Reserve, or National Guard then sign the appeal here.

Hat tip to Jawa.

You can bet your ass you won't see fawning media coverage of these brave soldiers like the 60 Minutes fluff piece on the soldiers that want to leave Iraq because it's too hard.
