Update 1/22/18, 2:15pm — Our fb post went viral pretty quickly. We were even contacted by television news stations and local papers. However, it looks as if the government shutdown will be over, as the Senate has enough votes to bring it to an end.
While that is awesome news, our troops, both active and retired, still need our support. ASPE is making a $2500 donation to Operation Enduring Warrior, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to honor, empower and motivate America’s wounded military service members (www.enduringwarrior.org). Please consider donating to this awesome organization or to any other group that supports our military.——————————————————–——————————— Today we will be choosing 5 enlisted military personnel and funding them during this government shut down. I encourage other businesses to support our military any way they can.
What’s happening in Washington right now is wrong. Shutting down the government, due to a lack of funding, is a disgrace to so many who work hard for the American people, in particular our military. These men and women make the ultimate sacrifice on our behalf day in and day out, yet we don’t think them worthy enough to be paid? Congress should be ashamed that they’re drawing a paycheck when our brave men and women around the world, and their families, will go without. We cannot sit idly by and do nothing.
ASPE has always been a proud supporter of our military and will continue to be. Please share this post so that others may join us in supporting our troops. Together we can make a difference.
