In early 2005, with most media only reporting the bad things happening in Iraq and none of the good, NewsBlaze started the "Support Our Troops" section, to show the other side of the story, with soldiers in Iraq sending stories.

Travel back in time, to see stories of Iraqis receiving clean running water where none was before, schools opening, health improvements, local economies improving. Stories of Iraqis, living just miles apart who never spoke to each other, working together to improve their own security, coached and encouraged by American heroes.

Stories of Iraqis helping to find bombs, insurgents, weapons caches; stories of Iraqi soldiers, learning to serve their country and learning to think for themselves rather than being told what to do, as they were under Saddam. Discover the hidden truth.

Especially see how the sons and daughters of America give their all for their country and the world, in ways the complainers cannot understand. We love them all.
