Enabling Americans to directly support our troops and their mission--whether deployed in Afghanistan or healing at home.
Welcome, Washington Post readers! Thanks for coming to troops need you. Check below for operations supporting wounded soldiers and Marines at Walter Reed and Bethesda. Please consider donating and tell your friends! Thank you for coming by. Blessings, Lt Col Egland.
Who, When: Founded in early 2007 by Lt Col Eric Egland (Reserve). Col. Eric Egland is a career intelligence officer who served in Iraq twice and previously served in counter-terrorism operations in places like Afghanistan and Pakistan. Listening to hundreds of troops on the front lines, he learned that critical mission needs were unmet, while at home the American people yearned to do more than bumper stickers and care packages. Egland published a call for a new approach in Iraq in mid-2006 and then launched Troops Need You to implement the plan in the book, The Troops Need You, America , which he continues to lead as volunteer president. In 2009, Troops Need You expanded to homefront support operations, delivering what America's healing veterans need for their new mission: healing and moving forward with their lives.
Why: We seek to practically apply the love of Jesus Christ, living out his call to Love thy Neighbor (Mark 12:31).
What: 501c3 charity that enables Americans to directly support the mission of US Soldiers, Marines, Sailors and Airmen
How: Use tax-deductible donations to purchase and deliver the mission-essential supplies they say they need
Where: War Front: Afghanistan, Iraq or elsewhere; Home Front: healing warriors here at home
