The Code of Support

You can sign the pledge tomorrow (Tuesday, September 6) between 4:30pm & 7:30pm, at the Bossier Civic Center.
The Code of Support provides all Americans with a simple set of promises that we can make to our service members, our wounded warriors, our veterans and all of their families in recognition of the sacrifices that they have made, and continue to make, on our behalf.
The campaign is intended to raise national awareness of those sacrifices. It will focus on asking Americans (the 99%) to sign their pledge to follow the Code of Support, and by so doing, become part of a new Corps of Support for our troops (the 1%). The campaign goal is to create a million-member Corps of Support!
Corps members are further asked to “get involved” by donating to or volunteering for one of the many vetted organizations that currently provide direct material support to the troops, our veterans and their families. This is truly a multi-organization umbrella campaign that will ultimately be of enormous benefit to our troops and their families by helping those who help them!
The campaign kicked off with an exciting “Patriots & Heroes Relay: From the Pacific to the Potomac,” and is carrying a special scroll containing the Code of Support from the west coast, along a route passing near many major military installations through 11 states, culminating in the delivery of the Code with thousands of pledge signatures to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in Washington DC, just prior to the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
