Many Ways To Support Our Troops, Part VI
This is the final part in this series.
America Supports You
"America Supports You," a nationwide program launched by the Department of Defense, recognizes citizens' support for our military men and women and communicates that support to members of our Armed Forces at home and abroad.
All across America, thousands of individual citizens, businesses, and groups - from local schools and establishments to nationally-known corporations and organizations - are hosting events and undertaking projects to support America's Armed Forces, especially in forward-deployed areas of the Global War on Terrorism.
The support of the American people builds and sustains the morale of those fighting to defend freedom against the tyranny of terrorism, and communicates America's recognition and appreciation of their courage and commitment to our country.
America Supports You spotlights what Americans are doing all across the land, encourages others to join the team, and allows all to tell their stories by giving voice and visibility to their efforts.
The official launch of the America Supports You program commenced with kick-off events during November 2004. Subsequent events occurred in various regions of the country to honor and recognize citizens' support for America's Armed Forces.
All events and information will be highlighted on this America Supports You website that allows participants to register and be recognized, share their stories of support with the nation and the troops, and download program materials for distribution and dissemination. Military members can access the web and learn about America's support for their service.
The America Supports You Dog Tag, emblazoned with the America Supports You logo, is the official emblem of the program, and serves as a visible force multiplier in projecting the message that America supports our military men and women.
