Giving Back To The Troops
It’s not only our awesome Military that serve this fine country but their families as well. While America’s finest is serving overseas their spouses and children are holding down the fort right here in the USA, so we thought we would let you know of a couple of organizations that helps to support the families of the Military.

Send a Care Package to a Soldier...
We've heard it time and time again from soldiers who have called into our show... your cards, letters and care packages mean more than you could ever imagine. Keeping morale high when you're thousands of miles away from the people you love and being shot at every day is a daily challenge. Coming home from the field of combat and getting a card, even from a complete stranger, that just says "Thank you for everything you do. Come home safe" can make a soldier's day. You can also send care packages of all sorts of things to help the people defending this country keep their spirits up for the upcoming holiday season. Below are a list of fantastic websites specifically devoted to getting care packages to our troops deployed all around the world. Let 'em hear from you.

Here is a list of some more organizations that provide services to send care packages overseas!
