Victory Caucus, May 10, 2007, Dave Thul wrote,

WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) led U.S. Senators and members of the U.S. House of Representatives in accepting a petition - the Appeal for Courage -- signed by more than 2,800 U.S. service members urging Congress to support the mission in Iraq and end calls for retreat. A full 60 percent of the petition signers have previously served or are now serving in Iraq ."The men and women who are doing the fighting and dying -- the ultimate stakeholders -- want to send a different message than Congress is sending," said Graham. "They want people to know they are committed to Victory in Iraq and they don't want Congress to undercut them. They know victory is possible. I hear them and I wish others would too."
