Military Families United In The News

I got this in an email. Take a little time to see what they have to say about the policies of the new administration. Then help them out by passing this on.

Dear Military Families United Supporter,

Over the last week, Military Families United has become a strong presence in the local and national media, fighting relentlessly to ensure that the voice of our nation’s military families is heard by the media, the President, and the American people.

From FOX News and NBC to the New York Times and Washington Post, Military Families United has provided the voice of reason behind controversial issues like Guantanamo Bay and whether or not the media should be allowed to photograph the flag-draped coffins of fallen soldiers as their bodies are returned to the United States.

We continue to defend our troops with a strong media campaign but we also need your help. The good news is that it won’t cost you any money to help us today.

Please consider forwarding this email to your friends and family and ask them to go to our website and sign up for our email updates. It’s critically important that we grow our organization to show strength against those who are against our troops.

Below are just a few of the hundreds of stories and newscasts that discuss Military Families United. To see more articles where MFU is in the news click here
