The latest news on what your organization is doing for the troops!
51 pallets of goodwill head out to the troops in Afghanistan courtesy of the American people and SupportOurTroops.org.
Threatened with no pay. Facing defunding due to budget cuts during a war. They press on nonetheless.
August 1, 2011 - During the month of August the Donati Family Vineyard and their customers are proudly stepping up for the Americans who put their lives on the line to protect the freedoms of our country.â€œIt takes money to ship care goods to troops overseas and put on events for military kids on the home front, and donations from this good family and their good customers will do a great deal of good,â€ said Martin C. Boire, Chairman of SOT.
Well, okay, so it's actually 101 pallets. But 99 is catchier. And we got you look. :) And it's not the kind of cheer your thinking about because that's not allowed over there. But what is being sent is equally fun and what troops ask us for all the time -- all American popcorn snacks!
Fresh from the factory. Super tasty. And the minute they smell it, they're transported back home for a few minutes. Really great stuff from Trails EndÂ® Popcorn, all part of Operation PopcornÂ® from SupportOurTroops.Org and the Boy Scouts of America!
$424,200 worth of goodwill to the troops - our deployed neighbors. They Support Us -- Let's Support Them!Â®
Unbelievable butter! Caramel glaze! Cheese lovers! Gourmet caramel corn with almonds pecans and cashews! Is this a great deal or what?
Right now it's staged and ready to ship out over a period of time and 40 foot 65Â° cargo containers. We'll keep you posted as it arrives in different locations in Southwest Asia.
Is this a great country or what?
Aberdeen Proving Ground, June 2, 2011 -
"SupportOurTroops.Org: On behalf of C Co. 1-169th AVN REG, I would like to personally thank you for the contribution to our recent Unit Family Day. Because of your generous donation, our unit was able to have a barbeque and picnic completely free of charge for over seventy five people. The gift card to Sam's Club purchased everything we needed to make the day a success. Along with great food, we had a local fire department come out with a fire truck and a moon bounce for the kids, games, music, and just a great atmosphere all around. As we approach our mobilization, time is short and events like this are very rare. This day will surely be remembered by all who attended.
Again thank you for such a generous donation. Support Our Troops is an outstanding organization and it truly means a lot to us to have such great support."
~~ KEVIN T. ------ 1LT, AV, MDARNG Section Leader
Soldiers and Families are always thanking us for providing these coupons, but it is because of organization like Support Our Troops that makes this possible. As you know coupons can be used for up to 6 months past their expiration date overseas and Soldiers and Family members are always asking for them.
So from the Soldiers and Families here at USAG Grafenwoehr we would like to say thank you to Support Our Troops for your participation in the Coupon Exchange Program.
Again thanks from me the Army Community Staff and the Soldiers and Families of the United States Army Garrison Grafenwoehr.
~~ Mark ----, Army Community Service Acting Director
