Elisabeth Hasselbeck Offers Great View of How Americans Can Help Troops Returning From Combat

She Dons Combat Boots;  Encourages TV Audience to Support the Boot Campaign

Nashville, TN (May 16, 2011) - The View co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck believes most Americans share her view when it comes to taking care of U.S. Servicemen and women returning from war.  Last Week, on Wednesday, Hasselbeck sported a special pair of combat boots on The View and told millions of viewers how to get a pair of their own.

“It’s a great campaign for a great cause,” Hasselbeck said as she showed off the boots.  “Proceeds help treat injuries and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.”

The boots are part of a national initiative called the Boot Campaign.  The Campaign’s motto is, “When They Come Back, We Give Back”.   Proceeds from every pair of boots sold go to charities that help military members and their families deal with a variety of issues they face when they come home.  The Boot Campaign’s goal is to see one million Americans wearing a pair of “Give Back” boots to represent the 1.4 million Americans serving in the armed forces.

“These are the same boots they wear in combat,” Hasselbeck told viewers, explaining how the Boot Campaign wants every American to experience what it’s like to walk a mile in a soldier’s shoes.

Five days a week, Hasselbeck – with co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sherri Shepherd and Barbara Walters – debate topics and issues at the forefront of American culture.  Their combination of candor and humor helped the quintet claim the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Talk Show Host in 2009.

Americans were first introduced to Hasselbeck in 2001 when she was cast on the hit CBS reality show Survivor: The Australian Outback.  She finished in fourth place that season.  She hosted Style Network’s The Look for Less from 2002 to 2003 and joined The View in late 2003.

Five Texas women – known as the Boot Girls – launched the Boot Campaign in 2009 after reading a book called The Lone Survivor.  The book chronicles the story of Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell who was the lone survivor of a mission to capture a Taliban leader in the mountains of Afghanistan.  In 2010, Luttrell started The Lone Survivor Foundation, now one of the charities that benefits from the Boot Campaign.

“There are so many ways they’re helping,” Hasselbeck says.

ARRESTED now in Colorado...but what a story and week for 2 brothers and their stripper sister!

Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when... They shot at a law enforcement officer outside of Tampa Bay, Fla., and when they fired inside that bank in Valdosta, Ga. But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today. " We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E.
