Dr Laura Schlessinger Joins Fundraiser for US Troops

Radio talk show hosts Dr. Laura Schlessinger and Michael Graham have BOTH just joined the 4th annual Troopathon campaign to send the largest single shipment of care packages to U.S. troops in history.


Troopathon is an annual event hosted by Move America Forward, the nation’s largest grassroots, pro-troop, charity organization.

Dr. Laura is one of the most popular radio talk shows in the radio world. She reaches out to a huge and very diverse group of audiences with her mix of relationship and family advice, personal responsibility and a smattering of political opinion. Her unique blending of social and political commentary has hundreds of listeners calling in everyday with problems, and seeking Dr. Laura’s advice.

She reaches an amazing 9 million listeners weekly. Dr. Laura is also an accomplished author, having published 11 books.

Her own son, Deryk Schlessinger joined the United States Army in 2004 and served tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. Dr Laura takes her role as an Army Mom very seriously and she supports the troops 110% that’s why she’s joined Troopathon!

Michael Graham – Boston’s Edgy And Bold Conservative Voice

Michael Graham is a radio talk show host on Boston’s 96.9 and was part of Move America Forward’s delegation to Iraq in 2005 for the “Voices of Soldier’s Tour”. A life-long comedian, he’s appeared on the same comedy stage as Robin Williams and Jerry Seinfeld.

In addition to being a great comedian and talk radio host, Michael Graham has political savvy. He has actually run political campaigns from the state to local level.

He is also a huge supporter of our troops and has helped Move America Forward on several projects. Graham visited Iraq with Move America Forward in 2005 for the “Voices of Soldiers” project and interviewed troops serving out of Camp Liberty.

Michael Graham rejoins his fellow radio vets Martha Zoller who also joined MAF in Iraq, and Melanie Morgan, who led the delegation, on Troopathon IV. Many more pro-troop celebrities are helping support the troops by lending their talent and helping spread awareness about the need to support our troops.

The men and women in America’s armed forces are sacrificing so much to protect America. Temperatures are now in triple digits every day in Iraq an Afghanistan, and June is already looking to be one of the bloodiest months of the year as the Taliban try to reassert their position after taking a beating for the majority of the last year.

Troopathon takes place June 23, 2011 from 1pm - 9pm Pacific Time / 4pm - Midnight Eastern. Visit www.troopathon.org for more info and to watch the show.
