Guest Post: Karen Fisher From Gold Star Families

My husband, Sgt. Paul Fisher, died in November 2003 when his Chinook helicopter was shot down by a missile over Fallujah, Iraq. His life was the military and he believed in it 100%. Read more about Paul’s story here.

Paul believed in his mission of fighting the war in Iraq. He also believed that they were making progress in Iraq. I know my husband loved the military, I know he wanted to be there, and I know he was proud to be there. My husband told me this all the time

The military is not for everyone, but for those who wish to be a part of it, we need to give them 100% of our support. The best way to do this is to get the good word out about the progress in Iraq through as many media outlets as possible. I have joined Families United, an organization who has pledged to make this their mission. Learn more here.

So I’m asking you to help me complete this mission by sending a message to the media.

Please go to this website –, sign the letter, and forward it to your friends.

I hope you will join me in encouraging the national media to recognize that Iraqi Liberation Day is on April 9th. Don’t Ignore this Milestone!
