This request was posted to Governor Palin's Facebook page yesterday. Certainly it'saworthy request and something small we can do to show our appreciation for those that serve in our military.
The annual Troopathon event is broadcasting live today from the Nixon Library in Yorba Linda, California. Today, I’m in a remote area in Alaska (in Illiamna in Bristol Bay) and heading back in Todd’s float plane to do an interview for Hannity’s show on Fox in a few hours from our house. But I’m with friends at Troopathon in spirit from the far North and offer my support to this worthy cause.
Troopathon is a wonderful way to show support for our brave men and women in uniform by sending care packages to our troops in combat zones. They’re willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for us. So Troopathon is the very least a grateful nation can do for them. This is just one small way for us to show them the love and appreciation they deserve.
All it takes is a simple care package with a personalized note of thanks to show them that they aren’t forgotten. Imagine if you were deployed halfway around the world, not having seen your parents, husband, wife, son or daughter in months. You’re tired, sweaty, and probably somewhat lonely. And then out of the blue you are handed a care package with a sincere note of appreciation from an American back home. What a difference that little gesture makes!
Please tune in today from 1-8pm to watch Troopathon (watch online at breitbart.com).
You can find out how to send a care package by going to troopathon.org or calling 866-866-6372.
Let’s show our brave troops the generous heart of a grateful nation.
