GREAT JOB! THANK YOU FOR MAKING
OPERATION MAIL CALL A SUCCESS!
Thanks to your efforts and generous donations we were able to make headlines today when MAF delivered more than 2,022 care packages to our local Post Office where they will be shipped to troops on the front lines.
Supporting the troops who keep us safe is such an important effort, local news stations came by to show how wonderful Operation Mail Call is and get the word out to the community that our troops will not be forgotten!
Here are some awesome pictures from the event today where volunteers came by to help us deliver all the packages at the Post Office:

PRES. OBAMA 5th STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS:
IGNORES BENGHAZI VICTIMS AND IRANIAN NUCLEAR THREAT
“After more than a year and the release of a scathing investigation by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, President Obama is still yet to hold anyone in his own administration responsible for the numerous security failures and vulnerability that led to the deaths of Ambassador Christ Stevens and three other Americans when terrorists attacked our facility in Benghazi on September 11, 2012.” said Danny Gonzalez, Director of Communications for Move America Forward. “Not only has the President failed to hold anyone in his own administration responsible, he has also not pursued or apprehended any of the suspects of the attack.”
“The fact that the President failed to even mention Benghazi with the father of one of the slain Navy SEALs was sitting in the audience is a slap in the face.” said Gonzalez, referring to Charles Woods, the father of fallen Navy SEAL Ty Woods, who accompanied Republican Congressman Jim Bridenstine (R-OK) to the State of the Union Address. “President Obama still has no answers for the families of the fallen, so he ignores them.”
“President Obama also took the opportunity to say ‘give diplomacy a chance’ on Iran. He claimed that his 6 moth deal would stop their nuclear program. While the President tried to sell this to the American public as a new era of rapprochement with an old foe, the truth is that the President’s deal gives Iran numerous benefits of cash and repeal of sanctions with no guarantees that their nuclear weapons program will slow down at all. The Iranians have bragged publicly that Obama’s deal does not stop them from pursuing uranium enrichment.” said Gonzalez. “The President continues to act like his deal makes the world a safer place when in reality it does the opposite. He also threatened to veto any new sanctions passed by Congress, despite the fact that polls show Americans overwhelmingly support sanctions on Iran.” concluded Gonzalez.
A new poll by the The Mellman Group released January 24, 2014 showed growing mistrust of President Obama’s deal with Iran. About 83% of respondents said they do not trust Iran to keep their word and 83% also responded that they favor continued economic sanctions on Iran despite President Obama’s plans to cut back on sanctions.
U.S. troops getting free coffee
Posted on November 12, 2013 by Chris Swift at www.rogersfamilyco.com
- Rogers Family Company has donated 41,349 bags of coffee in the last two months to MoveAmericaForward.org.
- On November 6, 2013 Rogers Family Company made its most recent donation of 10,922 bags of coffee to MoveAmericaForward.org which will be shipped to our active duty soldiers in individual care packages.
When I decided to write this article, I had no idea of the generosity this company and its owners were capable of. I was so proud to work for this company already, and learning the details of this giving program has now made me beam with pride.
Naively, I wondered why soldiers in the desert would want coffee. As of the writing of this article, it is 45 degrees in Kandahar International Airport. OK, I get it now. So you might be asking yourself, “who is Move America Forward?” Well, I will let them explain that. Move America Forward mission statement:
Move America Forward (MAF) is the nation’s largest grassroots pro-troop organization dedicated to supporting the brave men and women of our Armed Forces and their missions to defeat terrorism. MAF is supported by hundreds of thousands of pro-troop activists, veterans, and military families all across the nation who share in our unwavering support.
As a business, Rogers Family Company believes it is their duty to give back and who better to give to than those laying their lives on the line each day? Working with MAF has provided us with a direct link to individual soldiers, and allows us to make a difference in their daily lives. You would be amazed at the smiles and stories that come from these brave men and women when they receive one of these care packages. Small gestures generate huge responses.
EXAMPLES OF SOLDIER COMMENTS/STORIES:
Oliver S. “. . . well we don’t have much access to coffee except in the chow hall which is only open at certain set hours …. exacerbating my condition is that although there is occasionally decaffeinated coffee rarely can I find the good stuff. So anyone is interested my section . . . would be grateful for some good ole ground & caffeinated coffee. . .” Ryan A. “. . . It really does not matter what it is just something that says “hey, you are not forgotten and we still care”. Letters from small kids have been the biggest hit so far. The soldiers love the letters from the kids and the drawings. The only two big request I have had so far is one, Kerige (not sure I spelled that right) the coffee machine that makes one cup at a time. The guys are asking for one that fills travel mugs. We have boxes of coffee but the last machine broke. . . “ History of Move America Forward:
Move America Forward was initially formed by The Honorable Howard Kaloogian and acclaimed broadcast journalist and television personality Melanie Morgan. In response to concerns raised by U.S. troops that the news media was frequently presenting inaccurate coverage that often ignored the success of their missions and accomplishments in the War on Terror.
Together, Rogers Family Company and Move America Forward are dedicated to improving the lives of our active duty soldiers through these care packages. Small gifts mean the world to these men and women.
