How To Really Support Our Troops - "Operation Helmet"

It's hard to imagine that years into the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan our troops still don't have the proper helmet system designed to protect them from IED's and other sudden blast forces.

Whether it is the muddled bureaucracy, or the influence of special interest groups - serious blunders on the side of their leadership have left our heroes exposed to unnecessary deaths and lifelong brain injuries.

In 2004, Dr. Bob Meaders founded "Operation Helmet", a non-profit organization that provides the correct suspension pad systems free of charge to our soldiers - in the field and at home awaiting deployment. These upgrade kits cost under $100 and can be installed in about 15 minutes.

Can you imagine a better, faster, more direct and immediate way to save a life that might even save another?

Forget the "Made in China" ribbon stickers - support our troops! Really.
