In support of our troops


Just like the troops of antiquity, hearing from home is the most important thing our troops need while serving so far from all their friends and family back home. The smallest note of encouragement means everything to someone serving overseas. Sadly, we constantly hear that our Care Packages are the only piece of mail that many troops will receive all year.

Troops in ancient times desperately wanted to hear from home, just like today. It's that challenge that Move America Forward strives to meet head on with every single Care Package we send.
Aurelius Polion Pleas to hear from his family"Aurelius Polion" wrote this newly discovered and translated letter some 1,800 years ago, but its words are the exact same troops write today. It reads just like other letters and messages Move America Forward receives from Afghanistan.
Addressed to his mother (a bread seller), sister and brother, part of it reads:
"I pray that you are in good health night and day, and I always make obeisance before all the gods on your behalf. I do not cease writing to you, but you do not have me in mind."

He, like today's troops, are volunteers that signed up to serve knowing that it would mean leaving their family and friends thousands of miles behind to ensure all of their safety. In his letter, Polion continues on to tell his family that he is desperate to hear from them and despite sending 6 other letter he still has not heard from them and that  he looks forward to the day that he can come home. 

Just like today's troops, in this letter he describes hearing from home as most important thing he wants most.

But this is a story we hear far too often today, as people go on about their lives it is easy to forget about sending your love and support to those who are deployed in Afghanistan. They need your support TODAY

Right now you can reach someone like SSgt Martin (pictured above with another member of his unit) or the thousands of others who just like "Aurelius Polion", desperately want to hear from home.

Netanyahu: “Border with Syria has lately been full of jihad and Hezbollah terrorists”

  / Jihad Watch

This is no surprise. Sunni jihadists in Syria have said that the liberation of “Palestine” will follow Assad’s fall. And Hizballah, of course, is no less dedicated to the destruction of Israel. They may exhaust each other, however, before they can ever get close to harming Israel.

“Netanyahu: Syrian Border Full of Jihad and Hezbollah Terrorists,” from the Jewish Press, March 18:
The “border with Syria has lately been full of jihad and Hezbollah terrorists, placing us with a new challenge, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told the Likud party caucus Tuesday.
Speaking shortly after a bomb, apparently planted by Hezbollah, exploded at an Israeli patrol and wounded three soldiers, he added, “We have succeeded to maintain quiet against the civil war in Syria, and we will continue to act with aggressiveness to maintain the security of Israel.”

Israeli Defense Minister: Israel Can't Rely on Obama on Iran


Israel cannot depend on the United States to lead any action against Iran's nuclear program and can only rely on itself, the country's defense minister said in remarks published Tuesday.

The comments by Moshe Yaalon came as world powers and Iran were about to start a new round of talks over Iran's contested nuclear program.

The West fears the program could be used to make a nuclear weapon and seeks to scale it back.

Tehran denies the program has a military dimension and insists it is for peaceful purposes only, such as power generation. If a deal with world powers is reached, sanctions imposed on Iran over the nuclear program could be lifted.

Israel has criticized the ongoing talks with Tehran, saying an interim nuclear deal, struck last November, has left Iran's military nuclear capabilities largely intact while giving it relief from some economic sanctions.

At the same time, Israel's strongest piece of leverage, the threat of a military strike on Iran, has taken a back stage to the talks despite Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's insistence it remains on the table.

Yaalon's remarks seemed to underscore that insistence.

"We thought that the one who needs to lead the campaign against Iran is the U.S.," Yaalon was quoted by the daily Haaretz as saying during a lecture at Tel Aviv University on Monday.

Instead, Yaalon said, the U.S. began negotiations with Iran and Iran gained the upper hand in the talks.

"If we wished others would do the work for us, it wouldn't be done soon, and therefore in this matter, we have to behave as if we can only rely on ourselves," Yaalon said.

Yaalon's office confirmed his remarks but refused to comment whether he was advocating an Israeli strike on Iran. Netanyahu's office also declined to comment.

Yaalon criticized the West, saying its leaders prefer to avoid confrontation with Iran. As for the U.S., the defense minister alleged American influence is waning in other parts of the world, such as Ukraine over the crisis there.

"Weakness certainly does not pay in the world," he said. "No one can replace the U.S. as the world's policeman. I hope the U.S. will come to its senses."

Yaalon has made controversial comments about Washington in the past. In January, he was quoted as saying that U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was "obsessive" and "messianic" over his Mideast peace efforts. The comments triggered an angry response from the U.S., Israel's most important ally.
