With just two days left, Hot Air continues to surge! Our latest count brings their total to $13,005.70 in care package! We're absolutely stunned with the great success of this blogger competition-further noted by EVERY team's standing on our score board.
The Anti-Jihadists continue their strong rally and remain in second with $5,099.21. And in a remarkable comeback, Ron Winter's Greyhawks team is now in third with $1,574.64 for care packages. Our new teams, FreeRepublic.com and Family Security Matters, are in fourth and fifth with $274.95 and $224.98, respectively. And, Team COINS rounds up the list in sixth with $124.98 for care packages. The latest roster and standings can be seen here.
Thank you for pushing this great event and encouraging your readers to sponsor care packages to the troops! We have been quite impressed with all the terrific postings we've seen-please keep up the great work and help us finish strong!
Most important-this competition is not over! We're awarding prizes to the top three finishing teams and we're also going to announce a special prize for the team that brings in the most contributions for care packages in any single day. Any team can still win that special prize, so let's keep pushing!
And again, please let me know if you have any questions or need any additional information. Thank you again!

We joined late to this great event, but Captain Syncro and crew have us on the board!
We will join Melanie Morgan Thursday, June 25 for MAF’s second annual TROOPATHON, webcast LIVE from the Ronald Reagan Presidential Libray!
Please join us there if you can.
Also, if you can sponsor a Care Package to our Troops please visit:
And our FreeRepublic.com Blogger Team will get credit for it.
Captn Syncro thanks you and I as First Mate thanks ye too,
I just clicked through the process for the 99.99 deal...If I can do it everyone can!!!
Let’s Go FReepers!!!!!!!!!!!
I very much support the military, although I wasn’t a soldier...and I bought a $50 package...
Quick question. Why doesn’t the military supply the men and women with the needed supplies? We spend literally trillions on the military, why can’t they find sunscreen or brownies for those serving?
I pay nearly 50% of my check in taxes...state, federal, etc. why can’t they get the personnel what they need?
Thank you very much!
I served in the Navy during Vietnam and can assure you that our military is very well cared for, but we always enjoyed those cards and care packages from home. Even and especially if from strangers. Gives you a great feeling to know how much you are loved and appreciated.
Thank you very much, FlashBack!!
Woo hoo!! Way to go, FlashBack!!
E-mailing the crew to get in on this too!
I just did a $50.00, but how do they know to credit the FR blogger team?
Never mind, I figured it out. :-)
Thank you very much, RikaStrom!!
It’s the “rname=bcom500hts” code on the link:
Thank you for the opportunity and God Bless!
Thank you very much, mckenzie7!!
While the FReepathon isn’t for the troops, it keeps FR a float and I’m sure the troops appreciate FR, one of the few places where they are really appreciated.
Thanks and Good work for representing FR.
It’ll be great to see you again in DC!
In addition to all of the major conservative talk show hosts, celebrities are lining up for Move America Forwards Troopathon. Just as a sample of some of the great talent we are lining up, we have: country western megastar Charlie Daniels, TV game show host Pat Sajak, and actors John OHurley, Dale Dye, Jerry Heleva, also known as Saddam Hussein, and Love Boar Captain Gavin McLeod.
They all want to help get care package to our troops serving overseas, by signing on to our troopathon. But to be a success, we need more than celebrities. We need you to join in and help us achieve our goal of the biggest care package drive for our troops is history beating our record from last year.
While we here at home can enjoy our freedom and go swimming this summer or sit inside our air-conditioned homes, our uniformed men and women continue to march in the heat and fight for freedom. The temperature in Iraq today is forecast at 107 degrees, and by Tuesday that will rise to 113 degrees. Imagine packing all of a soldiers gear in such stifling heat and you may get an idea of why the care packages with Gatorade are so important to our troops.

Painted Hills Beef Jerky
