The Appeal for Redress is providing servicemen and women an opportunity to communicate with members of Congress and express their thoughts about their efforts in Iraq.

It's wording is simple: "As a patriotic American proud to serve the nation in uniform, I respectfully urge my political leaders in Congress to support the prompt withdrawal of all American military forces and bases from Iraq . Staying in Iraq will not work and is not worth the price. It is time for U.S. troops to come home."

One soldier was quoted in WaPo: "I think some things are worth fighting for, I just don't feel Iraq is one of them," said Madden, of Bellows Falls, Vt. The Quantico-based Marine plans to leave the service to attend college in January.

Amen, soldier, amen. I hope you make it.
