“Both Kelsey Grammer and Gary Sinise have displayed a long history of support for our troops. They have been active with the USO throughout the years and their participation in our telethon is further example of what great patriots these two men are,” said Melanie Morgan, co-host of “Honor Their Service”. “We are honored to have them on our Troopathon.”

Gary Sinise is most famous for his portrayal of Lt. Dan in the movie “Forest Gump.” He has directed and starred in many movie and currently is the star of CSI:NY.

About the Project:

On June 25th, 2009, Move America Forward, the nation’s largest grassroots pro-troop organization, will be hosting its 2nd annual “Troopathon”. The event will be hosted by Melanie Morgan, co-host of the nationally syndicated radio show “America’s Morning News”, and Andrew Breitbart, who runs Breitbart.TV, and the “Big Hollywood” blog.

The goal of the project is to send care packages to troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. During the 8-hour event that will be broadcast on the internet, radio and TV viewers are encouraged to sponsor care packages for the troops as the guests and hosts discuss various topics related to supporting our troops.
