49ers Take Back the Lead in Troop Bowl Competition

49ERS TAKE BACK THE LEAD IN
TROOP BOWL COMPETITION



After 5 solid days of donations, the 49ers fans have shown a lot of generosity for our troops and have taken the lead away from the Ravens! Help the Ravens take back the lead, or help the 49ers increase their lead!

You may have noticed we have switched from using Yards to instead keeping track of donations based on a formula for translating donations into football Touchdowns (7 Points). This is just to make it simple and easier for the fans to follow which team is in the lead!

Whether you happen to be a 49ers fan, Ravens fan, or just a football fan, the whole mission at the end of the day is to support our TROOPS fighting in Afghanistan. They are the real winners in this competition and they deserve our thanks and gratitude.

If you think the Ravens are going to win the big game, vote now by making a donation and help the Ravens come from behind and re-take the lead!

Troops in Far-Flung Province Given MREs for Breakfast Instead of Real Food

There have been rumors circulating through social media and chain e-mails claiming that our troops overseas are no longer receiving hot meals for breakfast or midnight 4th meal. Some claim it’s due to budget cuts, others say it’s logistics, but the rumors are flying that troops are only getting lunch and dinner provided.

“An Internet rumor that American troops in Afghanistan no longer get breakfast has prompted a response from the Pentagon via Twitter.

A chain email says the last-minute deal Congress passed to avoid the so-called “fiscal cliff” also denies breakfast to troops in Afghanistan.

The email garnered enough attention that rumor-debunking site Snopes.com picked up on it and rated the email “partly true” since some bases stopped serving hot breakfasts as they get ready for the drawdown.”

 

If you think our troops deserve better, how about sending a care package filled with GOOD tasting food that’s also portable, like powdered Gatorade or hot cocoa that can easily be mixed in minutes, or cookies and beef jerky that stay safe and delicious for weeks.

Here’s an example of some items a soldier might find in his or her “Breakfast” MRE.

Compare that to what the troops receive in a MAF care package. There’s no comparison, really. The MRE provides nutrition, but no taste, while a care package from home gives a soldier the goodies that taste great, the personal care items that make deployment a little easier, and the morale boost from knowing that someone back home cares and appreciates their service.

Our troops need us more than ever. They don’t complain about situations like this, they simply tough it out, but we know that we can give them better! Sponsor a care package now and give our troops the support they deserve!

If you want to do something to help our troops in Afghanistan who need support, there is a fun and fulfilling way to send support. Take part in our Super Bowl Troop Bowl, it’s a friendly competition we’re doing from now through Super Bowl Sunday to bring support to the troops.
