Military Troops Calendar

In August of 2006, after the death of LCPL Randy Newman, one of our local soldiers who was stationed in Iraq, a handful of people set out on a mission to find a way to support our troops who serve both stateside and overseas. The inspiration resulted in the Military Troops Calendar. It is a tribute to ALL U.S. soldiers who bravely serve and for those who have given their life so that others may have freedom.

A soldier who received copies of the 2008 calendar and is stationed in Iraq recently wrote:

"I wanted to convey my thanks once again for sending me the 50 calendars. I have distributed them to more than 6 separate units in the Army and Air Force to be shared by more than 1000 troops as they are hung in common areas. The Soldiers and Airman have expressed their thanks for the gift of these calendars and I wanted to forward those thanks on to you. You have raised morale a small bit, and every bit counts when you are so far away from home for so long. Again, on behalf of the Airmen and Soldiers serving in the Diyala and Sala ad Din Provinces of Iraq, we salute you, and thank you."

It is humbling and an honor for those of us at Military Troops Calendar, to do what we can to help boost morale and show our support of all the brave men and women who serve in the Armed Forces.
