Concerned Women for America (CWA) values the sacrifice of the millions of men and women who serve in the armed forces. Those service men and women and their families deserve our complete support in carrying out their mission. But today, many senators and representatives in Washington, D.C., have lost this simple focus, opting to support policies that make their jobs harder and, in many cases, actually harm their efforts to succeed in keeping America safe. The purpose of CWA's S.H.O.T. campaign is to send a clear message to our policy makers to "Stop Harming Our Troops!" Let them focus. And let them win!
Below are some CWA resources that highlight some of the problems we are facing and give you some great talking points so you can call your senator and let your voice be heard.
Also, make sure you CLICK HERE to check out the t-shirts, coffee mugs, stickers and many other materials you can get with our S.H.O.T. logo. Make a splash at the next townhall or tea party meeting with these great items that make a BIG statement in a very simple way.

- Issue Briefing: Homosexuals Serving Openly in the Military
The mission of the military is to win wars, not embrace diverse opinions or orientations. Homosexual activists must not be allowed to draw attention from the critical mission of the military simply to impose their sexual agenda on society. Rather, the focus should be on the consequences to our national defense and readiness if the regulation excluding homosexuals from military service is repealed. Click here for more.
