    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.

    The Marine Corps' top general and survivors are gathering to mark 30 years since the deadly Beirut barracks bombing that many consider the opening blast in America's war against terrorists. Marine Corps Commandant Gen. James Amos will speak Wednesday at a memorial bordering Camp Lejeune that honors the deadliest terrorist attack on Americans prior to Sept. 11, 2001.
