I want to let you know, in case you haven't heard already, of a very important event for our troops coming next Thursday, June 25th.
On that day, Move America Forward, the largest pro-troops organization, will hold their second annual Troopathon entitled Honor Their Service. The lineup of names participating in the event next Thursday includes Melanie Morgan, Michelle Malkin, radio hosts Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingraham & "The Great One" Mark Levin, as well as Hollywood actors Jon Voight, Gary Sinise & Kelsey Grammer. Presidents George H.W. and George W. Bush are listed as well, along with Vice President Dick Cheney. A full list of participants is here.
Last year, $1.5 million was raised to send over 12,000 care packages (equaling 80 tons) were sent to the troops in Afghanistan & Iraq. The goal this year is to surpass that amount, and show our men and women in uniform that America supports them and their mission.
This year, bloggers are getting involved as well, as there is a blogger competition between several teams. I'm proud to say that Marooned in Marin is participating in that competition along with several other blogs. So if you wish to make a donation to buy one or several care packages to our troops you can do it while visiting here.
Click on the link here to select from several options, depending on what you would like to send. Please also tell your friends who might be interested in this way of showing support for our troops.

Thank you for your support and most importantly, thank you for supporting our troops!
