Veterans Day

troopsFor the past several years, Talking Rock members have teamed up with Talking Rock management to collect and mail packages of comfort items to our troops stationed overseas. In 2015, we mailed 75 comfort packages to our troops. This year, we have decided to support our troops closer to home, through Fighter Country Foundation at Luke Air Force Base in Phoenix. Fighter Country Foundation (FCF), is a 501(c) (3), not-for-profit corporation focused on the supporting programs and services at Luke that aid, support and honor Airmen and their families in need. Established in 2006, FCF has made a significant impact on the lives of servicemen and women stationed at Luke. They also support Luke Airmen currently deployed in Iraq, Afghanistan and throughout the world. The foundation also supports the families of any Luke Airmen killed in the line of duty and are proud to have raised more than a million dollars for this effort to date. For more detailed information on Fighter Country Foundation
programs, go to fightercountry.org.
Beginning October 1 and ending on Veteran’s Day, November 11, Talking Rock will once again be collecting items needed by our
troops and their families (see below for list of requested items) Talking Rock will also be hosting a veteran’s golf day on Veteran’s Day. A portion of each green fee being contributed to this project. Talking Rock members and management have continuously demonstrated our support of military personnel. We hope to count on you once again this year. Drop off all donated items at Coop’s coffee shop between October 1 and November 11. Thank You in advance for your support
