#Troopathon: Honoring and supporting those who bravely sacrifice for us

http://twitter.com/#!/DLoesch/status/223456893392257024

An 8 hour live broadcast of Troopathon begins today at 1 p.m. PT/4 p.m. ET. Please take the time to learn about Troopathon and donate what you can.

Our troops are serving in some of the most dangerous places to be in the world, where the Taliban and their Al Qaeda allies continue to try and destabilize a nation to bring back a safe haven for radical Islamist extremists can train, plot, and launch attacks against the nations of the Western world, primarily the United States.

Our mission is to send care packages to support those brave troops! For as little as $25 you can send support to a Soldier, Marine, Airman, Sailor, or Guardsman serving overseas. Each package contains lots of goodies and helpful items that our troops appreciate, such as coffee, cookies, beef jerky, deodorant, wet wipes and more!

A great way to help tomorrow's #Troopathon? Talk about it and promote it! http://t.co/5aY4TxtO
