Earlier this year, Move America Forward proudly celebrated its ten year anniversary of supporting our brave men and women of the military and their war on terror. Over the past decade, we have shipped over 315 tons of care packages to our troops serving on the frontlines of Iraq and Afghanistan.
Today, we want to share the journey of a care package to the troops through the eyes of someone who has helped us deliver them to some of the most remote parts of Afghanistan.
While we rightfully praise the heroic actions of the members of our military, the sacrifice and good deeds of our civilian contractors serving in Afghanistan often goes unrecognized and unappreciated. Lacy Castleberry is one of those heroes that is deserving of admiration and thanks. When Move America Forward was having a hard time getting care packages delivered to some of the more desolate Forward Operating Bases in Afghanistan, Lacey volunteered to help find a way to make it happen. Not only was she successful in finding and organizing flights to deliver care packages to the troops on the front lines, but she often escorted the shipments and hand delivered them herself.
