H.J. Armstrong summed it up nicely today when she said "People forget that our troops play a vital role in disaster response and humanitarian efforts too." She's right, our troops do more than fight our wars, our troops serve our country in so many ways both at home and deployed so why shouldn't they have our support. They've volunteered to serve our country unselfishly and I think showing them a little support is the least we can do.
I could go on. However, I thought that instead of me telling you all the reasons why I think Americans should support our troops I'd open it up to you, our readers, to let us know.
I want to know why you think it's important for Americans to support our troops and why you think patriotism is still important. Why you do it?

It's all about you and why you believe we should all support our troops. As long as it's a positive post, and non-political we'll be happy to feature it here as a guest post and link back to your site.
