Publisher's Summary

American soldiers serve willingly. They risk their lives so the rest of us can be safe. The one small thing they ask is that they not be sent into harm's way unless it is absolutely necessary. But after being lied to about weapons of mass destruction and about the connection between al Qaeda and Iraq; after being forced by stop-loss orders to extend their deployment; after being undertrained, underequipped, and overworked long after George Bush declared Iraq "Mission Accomplished", these soldiers have something to say.

From his famous 2003 Oscar acceptance speech to his record-breaking documentary Fahrenheit 9/11, Michael Moore has been an outspoken critic of the Bush administration and the war in Iraq. But in this audiobook, Moore gives the spotlight to the real heroes of protest: the men and women who have fought in Iraq and want the American public to know how they feel about their mission and their Commander in Chief. Moore also fields letters from veterans of other wars and mothers, wives, and siblings of our soldiers in the field. They also express their anger and frustration, their tears and pain, and their hopes and prayers.

Impassioned, accessible, and moving, these are letters that reveal the true hearts and minds of the men, women, and families on the front line.

    "Ways You Can Support Our Troops"

    Rather than simply give my opinion of this great collection of letters from troops and their families, I offer a paraphrased excerpt from the Appendix of Will They Ever Trust Us Again?

    Ways you can support our troops:

    Homes for Our Troops at homesforourtroops.org - their mission is to build specially adapted homes for our severely disabled soldiers and their families.

    The Wounded Warrior Project at unitedspinal.org - seeks to assist those men and women of our armed forces who have been severely injured.

    Fisher House at fisherhouse.org - the Fisher House program is a private/public partnership that supports America's military in their time of need.

    Give the gift of groceries at commissaries.com.

    Send books. If you would like to send books to soldiers yourself, check out booksforsoldiers.com, where soldiers will post requests for books they'd like to get their hands on and all you have to do is pick a soldier to send a book to.

    Operation Uplink at operationuplink.org - you can donate calling cards, so military families can stay in touch during their extended separations.

    Operation Hero Miles at heromiles.org - through Operation Hero Miles, you can donate your airline miles to American soldiers so they can get home to visit with their families.

    United Services Organization (USO) Care Packages - (703) 696-2628 - at usometrodc.org - you can donate money to the USO to help sponsor care packages sent to the troops through their site.

    Armed Forces Emergency Relief Funds at afrtrust.org - helps the soldiers and families with paying for food and rent, medical and dental expenses, personal needs when pay is delayed, and funeral expenses.

    Red Cross - helping military families at redcross.org. Contact your local Red Cross chapter and find out how you can help with military families in your area who are struggling in this time of war.

    Thank you to all men and women in uniform for their service.

    "Great Book!"

    I am astounded by revewiers that have made the wild claim that Michael Moore "solicited" soldiers to send these letters. That makes me sick. Exactly what evidence does this reviewer have of this? Maybe his entire body of evidence consists of the Bush administration assertion that "every soldier serving in Iraq volunteered for this duty and is glad to be there". What a scurilous lie.

    The book is fantastic and I highly recommend it.

    "Not a Must-Hear; a Need-Hear."

    Whether you agree or disagree with the war in Iraq, the words from the troops on the front lines in Iraq carry more weight than any Bush or Kerry rhetoric back home. If indeed you truly do support our troops, you should be open to - and want to - hear what they have to say. But be prepared: this is not easy listening for a person on either side of the Iraq debate.

    "will they ever trust us again?"

    What an important and powerful acount from the eyes and hearts that are so closely involved in Iraq, in their own words. Every voter in the US needs to hear these voices. Thank you Mike Moore!

    "Shun??"

    SHUN THIS BOOK??
    Some people here would like you to "shun" this book... they think that the opinions of the soldiers should NOT be heard. Michael Moore does a great service to this country giving voice to those who others want you to SHUN.
    You owe it to yourself to hear this book, you owe it to those who want their opinions expressed, who serve this country, who are disapointed with the administration.
    Regardless of your opinion of the president, you need to hear the voices of the soldiers who FIGHT for YOUR freedom.
    God Bless Michael Moore...and America.

    "Listening to our soldiers is always smart!"

    A quick listen, a quick read, and an informative book. It doesn't matter where you stand politically. If you are open-minded, you will listen to our soldiers. They are the people that are risking their lives every day. Thank you, Michael Moore, for donating the proceeds of this book to the families who lost loved ones in Iraq.

    "Finally our troops can speak the truth"

    This is a devasting collection of letters from men and women in our armed forces. Their observations and feelings on our current state, from 1/2 way around the world is startling and insightful.
    Naturally, the "kneejerkers" will rail against this without ever reading a page of it.
    It's too bad because they are shutting out the voices of Americas "true patriots"...our troops.

    "Michael Moore fan, but skip this"

    I'm a big fan of Michael Moore & my politics are largely aligned with his. I've liked his other books, likewise his movies. But there's something about this piece that feels a little generic and repetitive. To me, listening to this book felt more like Michael Moore's words put into the mouths of people writing him. I doubt this is the case, but I was looking forward to a more revealing look inside soldiers' lives and the lives of their families. Instead I found a lot of political passion conveyed through letters.

    So, I can't say I really recommend this to you even if you're a Michael Moore fan. Then again, it was good background noise while I did the dishes. Not worth $20, but if you've got a book left in your balance to spare and just looking for some lightweight listening, this might be worth it your while...
