This campaign was great - thank you all very much for supporting the troops!

This was a tremendous success! 3 TVs, an Xbox, games, supplies for the ping-pong table, gift cards and food! Lots of food!
Troy had enough he was even able to share with the Marines - that's cross-service cooperation!
Thank you all for your generous contributions!
We've raised almost $2,400 for the troops! I had a quick video chat with Troy and he is really thrilled by all the support. In a touching detail, he lovingly referred to some of his soldiers as "little kids". It emphasized to me that, in fact, some of his soldiers could be as young as 18. Our younger son will be 18 in a few months and his biggest worry is about which college he'll go to... not about hostile fire.
Our son can go into the basement to play Xbox. Troy's "kids" can't.
I'm blown away by the generous response we've gotten to this campaign. I'm sure the troops will be thrilled to know that you are not just thinking about them - not just clicking "like" - but willing to take action.
I think this is a picture of what they're playing on now, so I'm sure you're going to give them a huge morale boost!
