Operation Truth Print Ad: America's Promise

From all of us here at OpTruth, and our member veterans all across the country, we want to say thanks to everyone who donated in support of OpTruth's new ad campaign. You can see your contributions at work on the Federal Page of Tuesday's Washington Post. That put the ad's message, which calls on the President and Congress to immediately step up in support of America's newest Veterans, squarely in front of the policy makers in Washington.

We hope to run this ad in other newspapers all over the country, so if you haven't had the opportunity yet to donate, it's not too late! The contribution process is quick and easy, so please consider making a donation today to help keep the ball rolling.

This week, the President and Congress are faced with a choice to stand either with or against our Veterans. The Bush Administration recently admitted that they miscalculated the health care costs for Veterans of the War on Terror by at least $1 billion this year and $3 billion next year. That means four-out-of-five returning Veterans could be turned away from care at the V.A.

Well now there's something you can do about it! This week, you can make a difference by donating in support of our new ad campaign.

This ad calls on President Bush, in no uncertain terms, to provide the leadership needed to ensure that America's promise to Support the Troops isn't broken. It also demands that Congress pass the Senate's version of an emergency spending bill to cover this year's $1-billion shortfall, and next year's $3-billion budget gap.

$12,000 will buy one, quarter-page ad in The Washington Post on an unspecified day. For $25,000, we get to pick a date when the ad is guaranteed to run, and given the timely nature of this issue, that could be crucial. But our goal is really to raise enough by Friday to run the ad as a full page this week: $95,000.
