My father served nearly 23 years in the U.S. Air Force so as you might imagine, I have a deep appreciation for the personal sacrifices made by the men and women in our armed forces. Long deployments away from family and friends in difficult and often dangerous conditions make them all heroes in my book.
So I was especially proud to learn that this July, UPS is helping send a little bit of home to the thousands of troops stationed abroad through a partnership with Goodyear and some of our other fellow NASCAR partners and sponsors. It’s being done in collaboration with Support Our Troops®, or SOT, a non-partisan, non-political charity established specifically to help bolster the morale and well-being of active duty troops and their families.
