Hello Firefighting community,
I would like to ask for a moment of your time. Troy Yokum is an Iraq Vet and EMT who is walking 7,000 miles across the United States to raise funds for the families of our American soldiers. He is also working to gain signatures from mayors and governors as he walks to present to thePresident in April in his efforts to create A National Day of the Deployed. Troy was recently in my city, Kansas City and I was so proud to be a part of the fire service community as each city he entered, Kansas City-( where my grandfather was a captain, my father the Chief and Director and a member for 39 years along with my 3 brothers, and cousins) Kansas City KS and Independence MO as they met Troy at various points along his route. He may soon be coming to one of your areas and if so PLEASE get out and support him!! Go to his website www.Drumhike.com and you can see his route and how to donate.. Each day much like each of you, soldiers and their families are willing to sacrifice everthing in service to your fellow Americans.. they like you deserve our support!!!
So please help spread the word, his goal is 5 million dollars for families who have sacrificed so much to insure we are Free.
