More than 15,000 soldiers from the 82nd Airborne Division will be practicing for the big division pass and review Thursday at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, as part of All-American Week, and the folks from U.S. Army W.T.F.! Moments are trying to make sure they stay on their feet.
“We would like to provide hydration to these soldiers during one of their practice days, which falls on Tuesday and Wednesday, with the division review happening on Thursday,” they wrote on their GoFundMe site.
Donations will buy Gatorade – at $1 each – for as many paratroopers as possible.
“Each dollar that you donate rehydrates a soldier and puts him or her in good spirits for the rest of the day. Why not give back to those that do so much for us?”
It’s hard to argue with that.
The effort has raised $660 so far – the folks at U.S. Army W.T.F.! Moments would like to be able to buy about 2,500 bottles of Gatorade.
