Rep Allen West Signs on to Troopathon! See How You can Help!
We are overjoyed to announce that Representative Allen West (R-FL) has graciously agreed to participate in this year’s Troopathon effort to raise money to send care packages to our troops fighting overseas.
This is the kind of support that only a pro-troop organization like MAF, and our friends in the community, can corral. We have the big names like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, and Laura Ingraham. Now we’re proud to welcome Congressman West to the list of guests.
This year we know we are facing an uphill battle to garner enough support for our troops. We’re battling a lot of “noise” in the media because there are so many other things going on — elections, scandals, high-profile court cases — distracting the public eye from our troops and the tough fight they’re in.
DON’T LET OUR TROOPS BE FORGOTTEN.
SEND A CARE PACKAGE FULL OF GOODIES NOW!
CONGRESSMAN ALLEN WEST IS HERE TO REMIND US
OUR TROOPS ARE STILL IN HARM’S WAY!!
Congressman West has built his entire life on his sense of duty and honor. He has served in the armed forces for decades, and is seen by some as the strongest advocate for our troops and their missions overseas in Congress today.
He served in the Iraq War before being elected to Congress and now he’s using his considerable experience in the military and public service and lending his voice to support Troopathon.
As a former soldier himself, Colonel West knows what it means to receive support from home in the form of care packages like these.
Each care package comes with coffee, cookies, Gatorade, beef jerky, Jelly Belly jelly beans, and tons of personal care items like wet wipes, deodorant, bug repellent, sun screen, and more!
