Support Our Troops And Help Make History TODAY!

The photo above is from Baghdad, where I spent a week in 2005 broadcasting live and letting the soldiers and Marines on the ground tell their story. My trip to Iraq was made possible by a group called Move America Forward, which has spent years working hard to support our troops.

Now Melanie Morgan and the gang at MAF are hosting a history-making effort on behalf of American troops abroad fighting the Global War On Terror. I jumped at the chance to be a part of it, and I hope you will join me tonight:

Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Lt. Col. Oliver North, Dr. Laura Schlessinger, comedian Jackie Mason, Mark Levin, Miss Florida 2007 and Five for Fighting’s John Ondrasik and former First Lady Nancy Reagan are among the many stars and heroes joining a Sacramento-based nonprofit in a historic push to send the single largest shipment of care packages in history to American troops overseas.
I will be part of the show, hosted by Melanie and our good friend Michelle Malkin. You can watch this special webcast on Thursday from 4pm-Midnight at the Move America Forward website. But they're hoping you'll do more:

Thousands of Americans have already sponsored packages through MAF’s website and a giant database of names and addresses of U.S. troops in Iraq & Afghanistan is being built—so that the packages can reach our military men and women in time for the 4th of July holiday. MAF would like all families with loved ones in Iraq and Afghanistan to send addresses and names to ensure all troops benefit from the overwhelming support of a grateful nation.

The goal is to make this the biggest webcast ever, and the biggest delivery of care packages to troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, too. You can send your own care package to the troops by clicking here:

I'm proud to be a part of this effort, and I would be honored if you joined me tonight around 11:45pm.
