I heard the news that you were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
I have a suggestion: I truly believe you would do yourself a favor and the morale of the men and women you lead in a Global War on Terrorism would be lifted if you flew to Camp Dwyer, or Camp Leatherneck, Afghanistan and dedicate your Novel Peace Prize to them.
They risk their lives daily under restricted rules of engagement and don’t know the mission.
Also, go to the military hospitals in the USA and the military hospitals in Iraq and Afghanistan and Germany and dedicate the award to the troops you lead.
I also encourage you, as many say the Iraq war surge “worked”, to sign an order to award Operation Iraqi Freedom vets the IRAQ VICTORY MEDAL. This will encourage them as many are still on active duty and being transitioned to Afghanistan for the surge there.
Announcing the IRAQ VICTORY MEDAL, along with dedicating your Peace Prize to them, and declaring the American troops and American civilians they are there to protect are PARAMOUNT, along with a rousing speech to lead them on to victory in Afghanistan, and promising another medal, the AFGHANISTAN VICTORY MEDAL, will DO WONDERS for troop morale.
I am begging you to do this for our troops.
