TMO RADIO Top 40/Rhythmic WDRE (PARTY 105)/NASSAU-SUFFOLK and The PARTY 105 RADIO NETWORK is teaming up with Congressman STEVE ISRAEL and T-MOBILE to give 60 T-MOBILE phones, which also function as mp3 players, to citizen soldiers of the 69th INFANTRY REGIMENT, known as the Fighting 69th, Congressman ISRAEL will bring the phones with him when he visits the Fighting 69th in AFGHANISTAN in JULY.
"When I asked soldiers what they could use during my first series of visits to the troops, the answer was mission-critical equipment and force protection -- ceramic plates for their vests and armor for their hUMVEES," ISRAEL said. "During my most recent visits, the answer was music players and reminders of home."
"We all know that music is one of the best tonics in life," THE PARTY 105 RADIO NETWORK Pres. JOHN CARACCIOLO said. "With an mp3 player loaded with three hours of music that will transport them back home, these soldiers can find some peace in a place of war."
