The View co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck has joined the Boot Campaign. What's it all about? Read on: 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 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.
