Oh, you had to stand on a hot subway platform for 2 minutes today?
You poor thing!
When the medal ceremony is over, and you’re done with your consolatory iced frappe from Starbucks, how about tuning in to The 5th Annual Troopathon?
Presented by Move America Forward, one of the nation’s largest grassroots pro-troops organizations, the goal of Troopathon is simple:
Send care packages to our troops, as many as we can, in a single 8-hour show.
This year, we raise funds to send care packages to those serving in Afghanistan. Our troops are growing weary. They have been at this for 10 years; many have done multiple deployments, and some are starting to question if America has forgotten that they are still in battle. There are 90,000 American troops in Afghanistan.
Just for reference, it’s going to be in the 90’s all this week in Afghanistan.
You can make a tax-deductible donation and sponsor a care package here.
