A - No Yellow Ribbon passiveness on the car, the home window, or around neighborhood trees.
B - No Flag waving excuses, with easy placed flags on car windows, that say nothing.
C - No Opinions without action.
D - Send real support ( the cost taxpayer money, yours and mine ) not just applause.

This is an informational, research, debate, group on what really supporting the troops...IS? This group goes beyond non active yellow ribbons, and lapel pins. It is the intention of this group to expose military equipment makers that endanger our troops. And it ask members to be active and write to their Congressmen and to the shody equipment makers, as well as expose any profiteering and cronyims.
