Most important-this competition is not over!

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!!

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
Planters Trail Mix
Ocean Spray Craisins Trail Mix
| Candy Diplomacy Jelly Belly Jelly Beans
For The Troops CDs
Hot Apple Cider
Most importantly, each care package comes with YOUR letter expressing support for the troops, encouraging them to keep up the good work! Please sponsor one today

Carrie is a great last-minute addition to a project that already includes such luminaries at Rush Limbaugh, Kelsey Grammer, and Dennis Miller. But the real stars are our proud men and women in uniform, and the real force behind the effort is the critical mass of grateful Americans capable of coming together to sending the largest shipment of care packages to our troops in history.
