"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

How many Hollywood elite, who "support our troops" are out doing this?

Soldiers wounded in Operation Iraqi Freedom are telling their stories to some of their NFL heroes today.

Four members of The Washington Redskins spent about an hour visiting with some of the patients recovering at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Guard Tre Johnson, fullback Rock Cartwright, offensive lineman Alex Sulsted and kicker John Hall listened to the soldiers share details on how they were wounded or injured. They also posed for pictures and swapped stories about football.

Hall says he looked forward to the visit because the wounded patients are real heroes. Sulsted thanked several of the soldiers for the work they did in Iraq.

Members of the Baltimore Ravens are visiting Walter Reed and Bethesda Naval Medical Center later today.
