Since the events of 9/11, the vast majority of Americans say that they “support our troops.” This is evidenced by countless bumper stickers, yellow ribbons and other visible icons. But what does it really mean to “support our troops”? How can the average American give real meaning to those three simple words?
Our troops are bound by the Code of Conduct, in which they pledge to give their lives in our defense if called upon to do so. By signing the Code of Support, we can show them that we, in turn, pledge to give them our full support and to share the responsibility for defending our freedom.
