An Anti-American Email To Make Your Blood Boil!

Below is an email exchange between a soldier stationed in Iraq and a company that sells different types of mats. He was inquiring as to whether or not the company ships overseas. He wanted to get the troops better gear to sleep on. This is the company’s response. I am floored. Please repost this so that this company will hear us loud and clear that we do not stand for this. Whatever your view is on this war - these troops are just following orders. Most are passionate about what they are doing. You can disagree with the war without disrespecting our troops. I apologize, but I cannot with a clear conscience post the way that this makes me feel that someone would say things like this. It just makes my blood boil!

Do you ship to APO addresses? I'm in the 1st Cavalry Division stationed in Iraq and we are trying to order some mats but we are looking for who ships to APO first.

SGT Hess,
We do not ship to APO addresses, and even if we did, we would NEVER ship to Iraq. If you were sensible, you and your troops would pull out of Iraq.

  • Good night! Even the one comment that is here before mine was spam! I cannot believe that a company from this country would make a statement like this - even if they felt that way, it surely is not good for business. I will point to his blog from my own because our troops deserve respect, no matter what one's point of view is. They lay their lives on the line for us to enjoy freedom! How DARE they do this. We must speak loudly against people like this and let our own voices be heard. Comments like this make my blood BOIL!

    I love our Troops and I pray for them. My own son will be joining the Marines in the summer and will be fighting for every American's rights and freedoms.

  • Babe, I cannot believe that a company in the USA would make a comment like this. As the wife of a future soldier and a friend of several soldiers I applaud you all for your willingness to continue fighting for our freedom. Everyday our soldiers are in harms way and they continue to lay their lives down for our safety and our freedom! This comment has made my blood boil. May we all stand up and speak loudly against people like this. God bless all of troops that continually fight for our freedom.

  • I couldn't believe this when I read it either. I'd love to hear Sean Hannity have a go at this one!

  • It is very awful to hear/read comments like that from that company. I'm a soldier been trained here in Augusta, GA and reading these kind of comments does make me see how unthankful people can be because of the protection that the ARM FORCES provide to our bless country.
