More VFF: From Pete Hegseth

Dear Vets for Freedom members:

The National Heroes Tour is upon us! Kicking off this Friday from the deck of the USS Midway in San Diego, our heroes will be touring the United States thanking veterans and families for their service and sacrifice. Our non-partisan message will highlight the military's commitment to success in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as the incredible progress being made under General David Petraeus.

It has never been more important to ensure our fellow Americans understand what is happening in Iraq and Afghanistan. The surge is working, and political and economic progress is occurring; yet mainstream media is failing to tell the story. Our Tour will highlight local veterans and inform your community, local lawmakers, and media about the incredible bravery and sacrifice of our troops, and the progress our Soldiers and Marines are achieving.

As you can imagine, a Tour such as this, combined with our Vets on the Hill event on April 8, costs a significant amount of money. To help support the Tour, we've commissioned an Official Heroes Tour T-shirt and Tour Coin that are available when you make a donation to Vets for Freedom. The T-shirt is available for a donation of $25, and for a donation of $50, you get both the T-shirt and Coin. As always, your donations go directly to supporting Vets for Freedom's mission of ensuring that our troops have the support they need to continue to fight the Global War on Terror.

With sectarian killings down 90%, suicide bombings down nearly 70%, and Iraqis passing key national legislation, it's about time that everyone in Congress recognizes the success in Iraq; and that a safe, secure and free Iraq is critical to America's long term security.

Join us on April 8 as we help educate our representatives. Our brave troops need our support, let's do everything we can here to "Let them Win!"

Move out and draw fire!

Pete Hegseth
