Welcome to Troopathon 2014, TODAY, June 25, at the Reagan Library

Posted on 06/24/2014 2:13:40 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

America’s best and brightest – our troops – are still in harm’s way! Don’t let them face the enemy alone! We began Troopathon in 2008 with a mission of sending care packages to troops serving overseas in the War on Terror. With over 38,000 troops still in Afghanistan, there remains a huge need for support.

The Troopathon brings together celebrities, actors, musicians, professional athletes, elected officials and military veterans to participate in an 8-hour fundraiser event to benefit deployed troops. Our broadcasts have featured pro-troop celebrities like Gov. Sarah Palin, Gov. Mike Huckabee, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Andrew Breitbart, Gary Sinise, Jon Voight, “Coach K” Mike Krzyzewski, General David Petraeus, Hulk Hogan, Gene Simmons and many more

It’s MoveAmericaForward’s annual Troopathon to raise money for sending care packages to our troops. I believe it started in 2008 and syncro and I have been to nearly every one.

Okay. I’ll send money. Enjoy!

Does Syncro ever have two feet on the ground? He’s always on a road trip or plane to somewhere. :)

Thank you very much! And I know what you mean about Syncro. He’s flying in from the Mississippi TPX McDaniel Tour for this event and then flying right back out again.

From July 1993 to April 1997, I used to live a few hundred feet beneath the Reagan Library. The entrance to the library comes off Madera Road. Down the hill from Madera is the Wood Ranch apartment complex, then Country Club Drive, then the Wood Ranch Golf Course.

I lived in the Wood Ranch complex for nearly four years when I was working at Blue Cross in Woodland Hills.

The library was a wonderful place to visit at sunset when the sun came down near the piece of the Berlin Wall on the railing looking west to the ocean. It was a wonderful view.

When I visited the library in 2007, Reagan was buried very close to that spot.

It must have been very dark. How did you keep the ground water from rushing in?

It was on a large hill. Ground water wasn't a consideration.

But that saved me during the Northridge earthquake of January 1994. The liquefaction zone ran by the bottom of the hill through the golf course, and the clubhouse took a pretty good hit.

I was above that on granite, and I took a shaking, but not much else in the way of damage.

LOL I had a 8 hr layover in Sonoma County then jumped on a plane with our (me and Jim’s) buddy Melanie Morgan.

Finally hitting my room after some time at the library and then dinner.

Hay BuckeyeTexan, thanks for all the help on my traumatic layover in Dallas on the way to MI!

I think my flight was moved to every gate in terminal A before they finally settled on one...

It’s a typo within the email that I copied and pasted from Troopathon.

I bet they don’t even realize they misspelled Troopathon (Troopthon)....so they don’t have a live link on that (part of the) email ;)

Thank you for the heads up. I just saw the link on Drudge and never heard of it, and was going to put a vanity post up to enquirer about it.

Now that I know about it, I’m making a donation.

And here I am at the Troopathon with a couple of my new shipmates:

The young lady on my left served as a quartermaster on the USS Ronald Reagan. She actually drove the ship.

They're part of a group called Pin-Ups For Vets and are also great singers. They were performing "Bugle Boy of Company B" when we arrived a little while ago. And they are great!
