MAF SUPERBOWL RALLY FOR THE TROOPS


SUPERBOWL XLVII is less than two weeks away and MAF is bringing back our annual SUPERBOWL challenge to all of our pro-troops supporters. This year’s Superbowl Championship will be played between the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens.

We want to see which team has more fans out there who are excited to donate and support our troops fighting in Afghanistan. The team who sponsors more care packages for the troops will win!

Last year, the Superbowl was played between the New York Giants and the New England Patriots. During last year’s Superbowl challenge, we had more Giants fans sponsor care packages than Pats fans, and sure enough when game day came the Giants beat the Patriots in Superbowl XLVI.

So who will win this year, the 49ers or the Ravens? Will your donations accurately predict the outcome of the game again? (more…)

Commemorating Martin Luther King Jr.

 

“What Are You Doing For Others?” – Martin Luther King Jr.

Today we remember Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and we remember to thank the great men and women of our Armed Forces for their sacrifice. Dr. King once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?”

With nearly 70,000 troops still overseas in Afghanistan fighting for our freedom, now is the time to show what you are doing for our brave troops who do so much for us. As they fight on the front lines you can send them the comforts of home that only a care package can provide. (more…)

Troops in Afghanistan Sent Back THIS Photo to Thank You!

Above is a photo sent to us from three grateful soldiers in Afghanistan who received care packages from Move America Forward for Christmas just a few weeks ago. They’re not coming home anytime soon, because they still have a job to do in Afghanistan and we need to continue supporting them until that mission is complete!

DON’T FORGET OUR TROOPS ARE STILL IN HARM’S WAY! (more…)

Congratulations: Hero to Receive Medal of Honor

Today we celebrate a true American hero who is being recognized for his amazing actions in battle.

He is only the 7th serviceman to recieve the prestigious honor in the Afghanistan or Iraq Wars.

It was during the battle for COP Keating, one of the most famous attacks in the entire Afghanistan war, that Romesha went above and beyond the call of duty and earned his Medal of Honor. Here’s more about the Battle of COP Keating from MilitaryTimes: (more…)

Stop Iran’s Choice for Secretary of Defense

Chuck Hagel is not right for Secretary of Defense

We believe a newly elected President deserves to have the Cabinet he wants UNLESS the nominee’s views are out of touch with mainstream America, especially when it comes to our national security.  Unfortunately, Obama has chosen former Senator Chuck Hagel who is simply wrong on a number of key national defense issues, and we ask the President to find a better choice or the U.S. Senate should reject him in their confirmation vote.
