Soldiers' Angels and Michael Yon

Teaming up with Soldiers' Angels

Over the last nearly four years, I've watched in awe as our men and women in uniform changed the course of history. They have taken defeat and disaster and given us—and the Iraqi people—victory and hope. Their sacrifices for our country are immeasurable.

Now, with your help, we can show our service members that a growing number of Americans do understand and appreciate their sacrifices and accomplishments.

I'm partnering with Soldiers’ Angels to give copies of my book, Moment of Truth in Iraq, to the very soldiers still stationed there. Soldiers’ Angels is an extraordinary organization. Among many other activities in support of America’s military men and women and their families, Soldiers’ Angels sends thousands of care packages to deployed personnel every month. Moment of Truth in Iraq will now be included in as many of those packages as possible.

Many readers have helped support my dispatches, either by purchasing a book or donating. For that I am forever grateful.

Now I'm asking you to help show the men and women in our military how we are telling their true story back home. I know soldiers and I know how much it will mean to them to learn that the story of their growing successes in Iraq is being told faithfully.

I believe that getting a copy of Moment of Truth in Iraq to every soldier serving would help make them realize America has not forgotten, and that more and more Americans are beginning to realize what is happening in Iraq.

This project is dependent entirely upon private donations. Without your help, it won't happen. For folks who wish to put one book in the hands of a soldier, it's just $10. For five books, it's just $40. Ten copies are $75. A donation of $150 will put a copy of Moment of Truth in Iraq in the hands of 30 American soldiers; that's just $5 a book.

Please visit this website to make a donation.

The slogan of Soldiers’ Angels is "May No Soldier Go Unloved." I'm asking you to join with me in showing your support and appreciation for those who put it all on the line, and please remember: All gave some, some gave all.

Thanks, Michael.
