I received this e-mail today from American Airlines. I thought it worth passing on:
Dear Richard Tehrani,
Please join us in celebrating our nation's Independence Day in the "Spirit of 1776". With your help, American Airlines will provide 17.76 million AAdvantage miles to bring wounded
You can donate your miles in support of our troops and learn more about this program by visiting AA.com and completing the Miles for Heroes donation form. The minimum donation is 500 miles.
Through this summer campaign, the miles donated by American Airlines and our AAdvantage members will assist Operation Hero Miles to bring family and close friends to the bedsides of U.S. servicemen and women hospitalized due to their service in Iraq and Afghanistan. Visits with family and friends mean so much to these brave men and women as they recover from their wounds.
You can help make their spirits soar. Use your AAdvantage miles for heroes and together we'll honor our nation and support our troops.
