We owe them so much.(1888PressRelease) - New York, NY - Bill White, former Intrepid President is reaching out toremind us all that supporting our troops is more important now than ever before. With theholidays just around the corner, many of us will be celebrating surrounded by our families,friends and loved ones. During this time we should take a moment to remember and be gratefulfor the enormous sacrifices made by brave American service members to keep our country safe.Tens of thousands of men and women in uniform will be spending the holidays far away fromtheir families, with many putting their lives directly in harms way. This past year has been adifficult one for our service members and their families.For our troops serving in Afghanistan or Iraq, the holidays will be most likely spent in a heavilyfortified camp or on patrol looking and expecting the worst. They will be doing their job awayfrom their spouses, children, parents and friends. It is not easy. "We often lose sight of the factthat many of them have volunteered for this job and are doing it not for the pay, but because theyare true patriots." notes Bill White. "We owe to give them more recognition and respect."They are overseas protecting and defending our freedoms and our way of life. It is a twenty-fourhour job and even within the safety of their bases, a soldier is always on alert rifle at the ready."Recently, I had the privilege and great honor of visiting our troops in the war zone ofAfghanistan. I accompanied my friend and a truly great American patriot, Mark Wahlberg, on ashort trip with the single purpose of meeting and thanking our soldiers for their service." saysretired Intrepid President Bill White. "Mark had also secured the approval from ParamountPictures to preview his new inspirational movie The Fighter to the troops."During their trip Bill White and Mark Wahlberg encountered over 2500 courageous men andwomen, shook literally thousands of hands and took many photographs. The United ServiceOrganization generously sponsored the visit and Mark graciously signed hundreds of autographsfor our troops. Per Marks wishes, the trip received little publicity. He wasnt there to promote hisimage, but to say an honest and sincere thank you to our troops. "For that reason, I haveenormous respect and admiration for Mark Wahlberg and his family." says Bill White.Every command post visited by Bill White and Mark Wahlberg gave them the opportunity tomeet service members from all parts of the United States. Morale was great. Upon returninghome, Bill White, retired Intrepid President received an email from a young female marine from
  • 2. Wyoming who summed up the experience very well. "We get a lot of distinguished visitors here,but meeting Mark was at the top of our list - it was so cool that he came and everyone is sayinghow tough it is during the holidays, but having someone of Marks caliber visit us makes us veryhappy."At every stop Mark took the time to thank them for their service and convey his hopes that theywould return home safely and soonest. "We were there for one specific reason - to say thank youand to let them know how grateful we all are for their service and for the sacrifices that theymake on behalf of all of us." says Bill White, "We encountered a lot of support from our troopsfor success of the mission and also met the amazing staff that cares for the wounded in ourmilitary hospitals."The day before arriving in Afghanistan, they were reminded of the awful toll this war has takenon our service members and the ever-present danger surrounding them. A soldier fromMinnesota was killed when an IED exploded beneath him. "May God rest his soul and ourthoughts and prayers go out to his family and all those who have sacrificed so much."Former Intrepid President, Bill White reminds us all to take a moment and remember those killedin action, the wounded and their families who make the ultimate contribution so we maintain ourway of life. We owe them so much.In this season of giving a great way to show your support for our troops is to get involved ormake a generous contribution to the many good organizations across this country like the USO,Fisher House, Intrepid, Operation Mend, Wounded Warrior Project or the Veterans HealingInitiative, working to ensure our brave men and women in uniform and their families receive ourgratitude love and respect. We owe them nothing less than that always.About Bill WhiteBill White has dedicated his career to honoring and supporting our nations military personnel,veterans and their families.
