WHO/WHAT: On July 9, Vets for Freedom will hold a press conferencefeaturing over a dozen Iraq war veteransto launch a national Four Months, For Victory media and grassroots campaign. The effort will culminate on Veterans Day (November 11) and is intended to inform the American public and key lawmakers about the phenomenal success that our troops have achieved as a result of the surge and the importance of ensuring victory in Iraq, Afghanistan and the overall Global war on Terrorism.
The launch includes a multi-million dollar television-advertising buy in target markets and on national cable that will air next week and run throughout July and August. The first television ad will be released at the press conference featuring the Iraq and Afghanistan veterans appearing in the ad. These pointed ads are aimed at informing the American people about the truth regarding progress in Iraq and Afghanistan .
Simultaneously, Vets for Freedom will mobilize our grassroots veteran membership throughout the country to spread the ground truthabout progress in Iraq and Afghanistan .

The Vets for Freedom State Captains from these states will have grassroots staff and resources available to mobilize local veteran volunteers. Vets in these states will call for victory in Iraq and Afghanistan by hitting the airwaves and pounding the pavement during the four months between now and Veterans Day, spreading the truth about the facts on the ground by drawing upon their first-hand combat experiences.
WHERE/WHEN: July 9 @ 9:30 a.m. in the Murrow Room at The National Press Club (529 14th St. NW, 13th Floor, Washington , DC 20045 ). Veterans featured in the ads as well as the State Captains from the 12 target states will be in attendance and available for interviews at the conclusion of the event.
Way To Go Vets For Freedom!!!
Did anyone notice that these are all key states up for grabs and wanted/needed desperately by both candidates?
MN, IA, WI, MI, PA, NV, NM, MO, CO, OH, FL, and VA.
This can do nothing but help McCain.
I think this is great but this org. must have a whole heck of a lot of money for this kind of 4-month long campaign.
