KDGE's Jessie Jessup Off To Afghanistan
February 12, 2007 at 8:25 AM (PT)
CLEAR CHANNEL Alternative KDGE (102.1 THE EDGE)/DALLAS afternooner JESSIE JESSUP departed SUNDAY (2/11) for AFGHANISTAN with gifts for our troops. JESSIE will be stationed for a week in KABUL with a unit that she cannot divulge.
Last year, she went to BAGHDAD as an embed with the 206th BOD (BROADCAST OPERATIONS DETACHMENT), which runs AFRN radio in IRAQ.
JESSIE told ALL ACCESS, "It is a mission related directly to MWR (morale, welfare & recreation). I am taking goodies to the soldiers in the form of a case of autographed calendars and posters from the DALLAS COWBOYS CHEERLEADERS, 600 DROWNING POOL dog tags, a case of 50 bottles of TABASCOS, hilarious MRE cookbooks, 30 FULLA dolls (MUSLIM BARBIE dolls), soccer balls, and teddy bears for the troops to hand out to the kids in the region. On top of all of that I have also been collecting handmade VALENTINE'S cards for the troops created by hundreds of local school kids."
