Bob & Lee Woodruff’s New Cause

A Memorial Day Goal for Bob and Lee Woodruff

“Hey Friends —  Would you give a dollar to someone who risked their life for you?  We are in a big push this weekend to try to get every American to give $1.00 (or better yet $5.25 – to signify the date of Memorial Day) to help our wounded troops. This is what Memorial Day is all about.

“Yesterday by being on CNN and CNBC to talk about it– Bob and I raised $21,000 just from people twittering and going to the website to give.”…………

ABC News anchor Bob Woodruff and wife Lee raise funds for injured service members. They join CNN’s TJ Holmes.

    Dover ‘Old Guard’ team shoulders heavy burden

    Honoring the Fallen

    The return of the body of a U.S. servicemember was opened in April to the media for the first time since 1991.

    Staff Sgt. Cody Reeves has survived harrowing conditions and stared down enemies on the battlefield during two tours in the military hotspots of Iraq.  Now he is stationed near Dover Air Force Base in Delaware, trained to carry the remains of fellow soldiers who perished in that same conflict.  Before,"it was all about catching the bad guy," Reeves said. "When you come here, it’s all about honoring your brothers who are fallen for catching the bad guys, for their service."….Rest Here

    that we never again enter a war based on whim or blind mistakes

    The sight of those rows of white headstones dotting the rolling acres of Arlington National Cemetery evokes chills and tears, for each is a testament to bravery; a monument to sacrifice.

    I have never gone there when I did not cry.

    On this Memorial Day, each of the more than 300,000 gravesites there – containing the remains of individuals from every war fought by this country – will be decorated with small U.S. flags, the symbol of the republic they held dear……………..

    The Pledge we ‘Nam Vets made, the Pledge this Country made, “We will never forget the lessons of Vietnam!”, back than! Those lessons weren’t on how to fight a Guerilla Insurgency of residents of another country, But Never Wage Wars Of Choice!!

    And our collective Apathy and Arrogance allows failed policies towards others which leads the few to Beat The Drums Of War Of Choice and we encourage the slaughter!!
