A BIG Thank You to our Troops: How You Can Help

Wednesday , 23, October 2013 Leave a comment

Every year, thousands of people have to spend the holidays away from their families while protecting our country. A local radio show does something very cool to show appreciation for this sacrifice made by these amazing men and women. The Big Thank You is a campaign organized by the Bert Show each year that’s goal is to send a letter to EVERY soldier deployed outside of the United States for Thanksgiving Day. What a great way to show gratitude to these brave soldiers!
