This Memorial Day, Honor Our Troops By Helping To Bring Them Home From Afghanistan

Reported by Ellen - May 26, 2011 -

Our friends at Brave New Foundation ask, "Are 1,500 U.S. Troop Deaths In Afghanistan Enough Reasons To End The War?" and they're seeking your help with a petition in support of legislation that could end the war in Afghanistan.

In a blog post at AlterNet, filmmaker Robert Greenwald writes:

This weekend, many Americans will mark Memorial Day at barbecues or other patriotic events, but thousands of families will spend the day dealing with the heartbreaking absence of a loved one. Others will spend the day like they spent every day for the last decade: hoping there’s not a phone call or a knock at the door to tell them their deployed family member won’t be coming home.

This should be the last Memorial Day we put military families through this agony for a war that’s not making us safer. Watch our new video and then sign our petition to tell your Member of Congress why the troops should come home from Afghanistan.

You can watch the video below and then sign the petition at RethinkAfghanistan.com.
