Gold Star Families Launch Petition to Support Iraq Mission
My name is John Ellsworth and I am the father of LCPL Justin M. Ellsworth U.S.M.C. who was killed in the fight for Fallujah on 13 NOV 2004.
I am the Vice-Chair of Families United for our Troops and their Mission.
As you know, Families United for Our Troops and Their Mission is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization. We are a grassroots coalition of Gold Star families, veterans, families with loved ones in harm’s way, and Americans who share a deep appreciation for our men and women in uniform and support them in their efforts to make America safer by winning the War On Terror. Now is the time to join together as one voice to show support of America.
We at Families United have recently started an on-line petition to show support for our troops and will be delivering it to our Congressmen around September 11th 2007. We are requesting your help in order to achieve our goal of ONE MILLION SIGNATURES!
I am also requesting that you forward this link to all of your friends and family.
We will need every signature we can get. http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/support-america-petition.html I believe that this is too important to ignore any longer and we need to let our troops know America really does support them, even if Congress doesn’t.
If you have any questions, ideas or helpful information on how to get this message out to more people, please feel free to contact me at [email protected]
Thank you in advance,
John M. Ellsworth, National Co-Chair – Families United for our Troops
Proud Father of LCPL Justin M. Ellsworth
Killed in Action / Operation Iraqi Freedom
