Americans unite, help troops succeed in Iraq

Americans unite, help troops succeed in Iraq

By SOP newswire

Average Americans are proving they can deliver what U.S. troops need to win over Iraqi locals.  Donations from Americans coast to coast resulted in the delivery of over $5,000 in medical supplies to the 1-28 Infantry Battalion in Baghdad.  The shipments were in response to a request from local Iraqis, who are now using the supplies to establish medical clinics in their neighborhoods.

Battalion leadership confirms that the resources are having a positive influence on the Iraqi people, and are helping the troops complete their mission in Iraq.  As a result of the recent shipments, local Iraqi leaders have been able to convince some Iraqi doctors to return to service, so Troops Need You is working to raise $15,000 in two weeks to acquire and deliver advanced medical supplies.
