Want to be a Part of Something Great?


Introducing our newest sponsor, Wild Turkey, the Real Kentucky Straight Bourbon.
Wild Turkey is wanting to give back to our troops in a big way and we would like your help.  Wild Turkey would like to raise $101,000 for Operation Once in a Lifetime and they are helping by matching any donation up to $50,500.  As of August 30th, 607pm CST, they have raised $27,394, which includes the match and they have created a counter on their Facebook that shows a live up to date total of the money raised for Operation Once in a Lifetime.

When it ends:

Wild Turkey will be matching donation till September 30th, so that gives just over 60 days to reach our goal.

Who it will benefit:

Operation Once in a Lifetime could help hundreds of soldiers and their families with a donation of $101,000 and help us open the Leevon Ritter Support Your Troops Resale Center located near Fort Hood Texas.  This center will allow the public and soldiers to donate their gently used items and when those items are resold all the proceeds will benefit U.S. Soldiers, Veterans and their families, but U.S. Soldiers , Veterans and their families will be able to shop in the store for free for needed items. Read more about SGT. Leevon Ritter who was killed May 22nd 2012.

How you can be a part:

Visit their Facebook donation page and simply make your tax deductible donation there.  After your donation watch the donation amount rise!!  If you do not have a Facebook simply make a donation on our site and check back the next day and see the latest update of how much was raised on our site.
