This month’s release of “CD for the Troops V” puts the number of albums provided to service members, veterans, and military families at one million.
“John Ondrasik’s love for our military families and devotion to the welfare of our men and women in uniform comes through again in this fifth album,” said Amy Palmer, Chief Operating Officer for Operation Homefront, a co-producer on the album series, said in a statement. “All of the talented artists who have lent their voices to ‘CD for the Troops V’ have shown their support for our military in an incredible way.”
Service members or their spouses with valid military ID can order, at no cost, the CD at CDfortheTroops.com. The albums are not available for sale to the public.
“It’s all about the troops and their families”, says Ondrasik, “They are the heart and spine of our nation. As for the CD for the Troops going platinum, it’s a powerful statement of support for those whose sacrifice secures or our freedom.”
