EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE in NORTHWEST FLORIDA will be the site of the next JACK DANIELS/USO “TOAST TO THE TROOPS” event on APRIL 15th, as military spouses, USO volunteers and others will assemble thousands of OPERATION USO CARE PACKAGES for troops serving overseas. The 14th “TOAST TO THE TROOPS” stuffing party will continue the tradition of having a “thank you” barbecue for all the volunteers followed by a free base-wide concert headlined by BLACK RIVER ENTERTAINMENT artist CRAIG MORGAN.
Since 2005, the JACK DANIEL DISTILLERY has been collecting personal messages of support in the form of “toasts” to include in USO care packages and has hosted 13 other events at military installations across the country. More than 150,000 care packages have been sent to our troops through the “Toast to the Troops” program.
“I’ve been honored to be part of the ‘TOAST TO THE TROOPS’ program since it began six years ago and it’s always inspiring for me to perform for our troops and their families,” said MORGAN. “I know how much it means to receive a care package out in the field and to know that you are supported. Our troops, their spouses and families sacrifice so much, and I’m glad to get the chance to let them know how much we value their efforts.”
