Pro-Troop Group Announces Third Annual Drive
to Support Military Servicemen and Women

Sacramento, Calif. - Move America Forward, the nation’s largest grassroots pro-troop organization is announcing the third annual “Troopathon” which is set to take place July 1st live from the Richard M. Nixon Presidential Library in Yorba Linda, California. The Troopathon is a once-a-year fundraiser held by the group and consists of an 8 hour live video broadcast over the web and radio.

This 8 hour live broadcast is hosted by Melanie Morgan, talk radio veteran and pro-troop advocate with co-hosts including Mark Williams, also a talk radio host, and the conservative social media giant Andrew Breitbart . The group invites well known celebrities to come on the show and talk about their support for the troops, the sacrifices they make for our country, and encourage the audience to make donations throughout the show to support men and women deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan. The overall goal of the show is to raise money to send care packages.

In the 2 years since the Move America Forward began holding these events they have received participation from such well known celebrities as Jon Voight, Gary SInise, Kelsey Grammer, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, John Ondrasik of the band Five for Fighting and many others including letters of support sent by Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush. Also participating are leading experts on security policy and journalists such as John Bolton, Andy McCarthy, Frank Gaffney, Robert Spencer and others. These important guests have been invited back and are expected to participate again, but the group is also expanding it’s list of famous hosts who want to help support the troops.

The innovative fundraising event is styled after a typical TV telethon and over the first 2 years that the event has been held, the organization has raised over $2 million to send support to troops overseas. This year the group is hoping to break their previously set record of $1.3 million raised on a single night.

An email from Melanie Morgan a earlier in this month:

Sorry for the mass email but if you are getting my little missive it’s because I need your help in getting the word out about Troopathon 2010.  Our live telethon web broadcast is coming up July 1st, and I’m excited to once again  Co-host this amazing effort to do something concrete and real in support of our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.


For the 3rd year in a row, my friends in talk radio (Rush, Sean, Mark, Laura and many others) as well as Hollywood (Jon Voight, Kelsey Grammer, and Gary Sinese) and Andrew Breitbart from his zillion websites, are joining together to attempt another record-breaking effort to send the largest number of care packages to our servicemen and women in Iraq and Afghanistan.

We are broadcasting live on the web at July 1st from 1 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. PDT at the Nixon Library in Yorba Linda, California.

Thank you Brad Hunstable at for donating the bandwidth and support! (who is a veteran himself.)

 Please take a second (okay, 1:56 seconds) to watch this promo video explaining what we are doing and how people can contribute to our outstanding men and women in the Armed Services who are sweltering right now in 125 degree temperatures.


If you can  - please post to your website, or write about us, talk about us, email others, or tap out morse code – however you can communicate for a very important cause. If you need more information or have questions about the event, contact any of the people listed above in the “to” line. All these fine folks are helping to organize this HUGE event with so many people from all around the world, including live and taped reports from our very own staff in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as the super reporter/blogger Matt Sanchez who is available to do customized reports for anyone on this email from Kandahar in just a couple of days.

 With gratitude,

 Melanie Morgan

Move America Forward Co-Founder
