SMITH was the first ever broadcast journalist from UTAH to embed with the U.S. TROOPS in 2008, and again in 2009. During his visit, SMITH will deliver messages of support along with a U.S. flag that was flown over WASHINGTON D.C. in their honor by UTAH Congressman JIM MATHESON. SMITH will be broadcasting his entire journey live via satellite phone, and updating FACEBOOK to share with the families of those serving over seas.
According to JON SMITH, "I'm proud that we get the rare chance to visit and thank our troops as well as take a small taste of home to them."
