Dear VoteVets.org supporter,

You are incredible! Since we unveiled this ad on Wednesday, which targets George Allen for voting against giving our troops the right body armor, donations have poured in fast and hard. On behalf of my fellow veterans, I thank you.

Reaction has been quick and strong, as well! DailyKos said it was the most compelling ad this cycle. MyDD.com gave it an A+. PoliticsTV said it is a “very well done ad spotlighting the difference between Sen.George Allen’s voting record and his rhetoric.”

You helped us hold accountable those that have failed the troops. Lets do it again.

As promised, we’ve been keeping track of all of your votes for where the ad should run next. There have been some really interesting picks. Some people hope we keep running in Virginia, some had other places they would like to run it, and someone wrote in that the ad should be run “Against all those [expletives]!!”

I have a huge smile on my face, just knowing how enthusiastically you support the troops. Just don’t ask me to take you all to dinner sometime – you’ve got expensive taste, and voted for some of the priciest places in America to run this ad! (And you gave us some BIG surprises too). But, we hear you, and agree with you, and we want to make this happen. We’re going to need your help, though, if we’re going to pull this off.

We have ads ready to go against every Senator who disgracefully voted to deny troops body armor, and if we’re going to get this ad up where you’d like to see it, we are going to need to raise at least $50,000 by Tuesday.

Are you up to the challenge?

Please, send this email around to all your friends and family, and please consider making a donation. Get ready and strap yourselves in, this will be one heck of a ride!

Thank you for supporting the troops- and supporting the voice of America’s 21st Century patriots.

Best Regards,

  • Thankyou for running this ad. My son’s life was saved by a kevlar vest in Iraq the year of 2004. His guard unit fortunately had the proper type unlike others. I read the Senate Amendment #452 George Allen and other republicans voted against on April 2,2003 that would have earmarked 1 billion dollars for guard and reservist troops armor. I wonder how many lives would have been saved by that 1 billion dollars. I am writing to our local newspaper editor to ask people to vote for Jim Webb. If they truly support the troops this is the time to show it. Thankyou and please keep me informed. Sincerely, Peggy Sims
