Holiday Packing Event

160 BOXES PACKED AT THE EVENT!!
More arrived over the weekend, and by the time we are through, MORE THAN 300 boxes will be shipped for the holidays!!!

Our Holiday Packing Event was hosted this year by American Legion Post 273 on beautiful Madeira Beach, Florida. Tampa Bay Troop Support has found a new home by invite from the Legion Commander and the Ladies Auxiliary. We have had three very successful events there, and look forward to many more. I want to give a huge note of thanks to all of those involved in making Tampa Bay Troop Support feel welcomed, and again to those who came out to support our event!

We had our usual packing of goodies, candy, snacks, books, magazines, toiletries, you name it, it was on the tables ready to be shipped! As the day started, there were dozens of volunteers coming in to bring goods and help us pack the boxes. A big thank you to the Ladies Auxiliary for collecting goods and coming out to help, and to the Legion Commander - Jim White - who also gave us $500 in donations toward our shipping! There were also a lot of other companies and groups who helped with donations of goods, shipping, and support as well; MBA, Pinellas County School Board, Freedom Sales & Marketing, Clearwater Threshers, Tampa Bay Rays, Cross Components, Largo Area Historical Society, Silicon Systems, Great Clips Bardmoor, Madeira Beach Brown Boxer, Biff Burger, Kimberly Harker, Melanie Rivera, and many many more.

Welcome Home 1LT Ryan Berg!

Group News

On June 2nd, we got the honor of welcoming home another one of "our guys". 1LT Ryan Berg, commander of the Florida Army National Guard's 856th Quartermaster Support Company and the rest of his unit arrived back after nearly a year in Afghanistan. We were there with family and friends to welcome them home and thank them for their service.  Another surprise was in store as Ryan presented our founder Dave Dabney with a flag for the group on behalf of his company in Afghanistan.  Thank you for your service, Ryan!  We're happy we could send you and your crew a piece of home!

Full Throttle Magazine invited Tampa Bay Troop Support to their 17th Anniversary party at Quaker Steak & Lube.

They also gave us a great booth location on the main area (free!), and the proceeds from the 50/50 raffle too!  As a result we raised well over $300 for the day!! This will ship another 22 boxes over to our troops overseas.
THANK YOU!

A big thanks to our own Lt. "Redneck" Ryan Berg and Full Throttle Magazine's Al "Dew" Swetay for making this happen! We look forward to working with Full Throttle again in future shows. These folks at Full Throttle Magazine are truly great people and tremendous supporters of both our troops, and the biker community.

So I want everyone to go visit the Florida Full Throttle web page, and they are on Facebook too. Let them know how much we appreciate what they did for us! Let them know you heard about their support to our great effort!
