Almost TEN THOUSAND BOOKS Donated and Delivered to Our Great Men and Women Serving in Defense of Our Freedoms in the Dangerous Middle East by Reid!

Author Reid Lance Rosenthal Partners with MAF for Great Christmas Surprise for our Troops!

Support Troops MAF NewsLetter

Move America Forward was surprised and delighted to receive a special donation this past Christmas from Wyoming rancher and nationally acclaimed author Reid Lance Rosenthal –an amazing 9,800 copies of his #1 Best Selling Threads West, An American Saga, the first historical fiction novel of his iconic epic saga of the same name! The series enjoys a virtual even split between male and female readers which means all our troops will just love receiving this great read.  Threads West is the recipient of a whopping twenty six National Awards. Threads West is compared to Lonesome Dove, The Sacketts, Dances With Wolves and Centennial. Reviewers have dubbed the series the “Gone With The Wind Of The West”.

Threads West, which begins in May, 1854, is the story of America set in the West–it is our story–the tale of the weave of the American tapestry from the threads of lives of brave men and independent women of differing origins, uncommon cultures and competing ambitions over four generations in the West

Reid is fourth generation land and cattle. In addition to writing and ranching he is a well-known talk show host and is fiercely and proudly pro-American military. The inspiration for his remarkable donation, already in the hands of eager military readers around the world, is perhaps best summed up in his own words:  “It is an honor and a privilege to provide these books to you–the brave Support Troops MAF NewsLetter and women in harm’s way and far from home who protect the people and values of the red, white and blue.

I chose Move America Forward after much research.  They have not disappointed my faith in their leading resolve, organization and abilities to get these books in your hands, wherever you may be protecting America around a dangerous globe. You, like the courageous men and women of the past who live in the pages of these novels, are the contemporary heroes and heroines leaving their legend and footprint upon America and Freedom. The books are merely a humble thanks from one proud American. Be safe. Enjoy.”

We are delighted to be informed by Reid that he plans to make these types of amazing donations an annual holiday event for our troops through Move America Forward.  Thank you, Reid!

A Word from MAF Co-Founder Melanie Morgan!

On January 25, I had the opportunity to venture forth from the Bay Area to visit the MAF offices in Sacramento as the volunteers there were preparing our first shipment of 2017 care packages.

Ever since co-founding Move America Forward back in 2004, I have been so proud of the great work done by our volunteers do to honor and thank our troops. Only by their efforts AND our donors who sponsor the care packages are we able to send them to our troops on the front lines.

    When is the 4th book coming out. I’ve been waiting almost 3 years. Can’t even remember where the 3rd nbook left off. Really disappointed to the continued false replies.

  2. carole fiore says:

    I think that’s so wonderful that you gave so many books to our troops! I help out on a help-line who need help some want to end their liproblemves and its so sad they come with so many problems. It reminds me of the time of the Viet Nam war and I worked at the navy hospital at Great Lakes in Waukegan and I was a candy stripper and to get my hours in for I needed to do some to get scholarship for college and my cousin came home and was really messed up and needed help so I saw a lot of sadness and guys and gals with injuries that some just couldn’t or wouldn’t help. That’s how I feel now for some wait for help that shopsuldn’t take months for they serve our country to keep us safe! My cousin is over their and he’s preaching the word and to hyour elp them with problems that their families need like paying their house payments or with their kids and other things, he keeps me busy with some but I just direct them to others so they get the help they need. thanks for the books! I’m waiting patiently on book 4 and 5 or 6 been too busy to keep track! have a great day!

      Thanks, much appreciated…and thanks to you for your helping out the vets, and for your families service in defense of Freedom. We all need to chip into both the battle for the Republic, the preservation of the American spirit, and the long term war against radical Islamic jihad. Our country and our children and theirs are depending on us–it is our turn to carry the torch! And get ready for 4, 5 and 6!!! 🙂

  3. Beth Cook says:

    This is a wonderful thing being done for our troops no matter where they are in this world. Reid is a very talented and caring man. My husband, Chappie, is a disabled Viet Nam Veteran. Chappie and I know Reid personally and are very proud to have him as a friend. He’s a great person.

    • Reid says:


      How are you and Chappie? Great hearing from you–and thanks for the thanks, but not necessary–both my honor and privilege. We are going to make this an annual thing :-). Hope you folks are doing better than well–get ready for books 4 , 5 and 6!!!
