Support the troops is more than just words to these Loyal Corporate Citizens.
ust two examples of Evil Corporations (© 1960-2005, Moonbatty Fraudocrats) effectively and tangibly supporting our troops and actually doing — not just asking — what they can do for our country's good:
Assisting the Coalition to Salute America's Heroes
- Helping disabled U.S. warriors
By Amy Doolittle
THE WASHINGTON TIMES
July 21, 2005
...To bridge this gap [between LibStream Media's neglectful "reporting" and full public awareness of the challenges facing our wounded soldiers], Mr. Chapin and board members of [Coalition to Salute America's Heroes] decided to sell red, white and blue wristbands for $2 each, with proceeds going toward helping the discharged soldiers.
To do this, they needed a venue. So an appeal was made to Giant Foods to host bins of the wristbands.
"Our first real public exposure is in Giant," Mr. Chapin said. "They were wonderful — they jumped right on the bandwagon. We are in something like 500 stores, and [the wristbands] have done extremely well. They've sold, at the last count I have, roughly 300,000 bands since they started."
At least $50 million is needed to help all the seriously wounded soldiers, the coalition said.
The Giant promotion, which started June 26, was to continue only through the beginning of July. However, because the bands have done well and because there are still bands left, Giant will continue to sell them indefinitely, said company spokesman Barry Scher.
Going above and beyond what is required for its employees who are bravely defending our country—
- Sears Supports Deployed Troops, Families

Sears, Roebuck and Co. is proving to be a friend of military families — from making up lost pay for its employees called to active duty in the National Guard and reserve, to donating $2 million to the National Military Family Association for military family programs.
The Chicago-based retailer announced in September that it is extending its military pay differential and benefits coverage to five years. This is the second extension this year. In January, Sears extended its military pay differential to three years, from 30 months.
The announcement, which affects about 200 full-time Sears employees, also means they can continue participating in the company's life insurance, medical and dental programs, if they choose.
By law, companies are required to provide deployed employees access to 18 months of continued medical coverage at the employees' expense. But Sears' policy, which provides these benefits up to five years, goes far beyond the law's requirements.
I'll definitely go out of my way to patronize these Loyal Corporate Citizens who are setting such a fine example and remarkably high standard for everyone who says "we support our troops!"
