Hosted by the non-profit charity Move America Forward, “Troopathon” is a month-long care package drive that ends with an eight-hour web-a-thon broadcast full of familiar personalities and political figures. This year’s broadcast will be on June 27th from the Richard M. Nixon Presidential Library in Yorba Linda, CA.
The event features a star-studded lineup including Senator Ted Cruz, Governor Rick Perry, Mark Levin, Herman Cain, Ambassador John Bolton, Gene Simmons, Gary Sinise, Mike “Coach K” Krzyzewski, Col. Allen West, and Adam Carolla, along with many others.
Breitbart News’s Larry O’Connor will be hosting the event along with Governor Mike Huckabee, Troopathon co-founder Melanie Morgan, and Gold Star mom and troop activist Debbie Lee.
O’Connor interviewed Lee on the “Dennis Miller” radio show on Tuesday. Debbie Lee’s son, Marc Lee, was the first Navy SEAL killed in Iraq. Since then she has “put on Marc’s boots” and taken up the “fight” to help the troops overseas. “I understand the cost of freedom,” she told O’Connor.
Breitbart News will live stream the event beginning at 1:00 p.m. PT this Thursday.
