U.S. July 15, 2019 - Thanks to the good will of Americans across our great nation, Support Our Troops® is privileged to be delivering 1,584 pairs of free boot insoles to servicemembers of the Illinois National Guard this week. The logistics of today’s military is performed largely by the National Guard, and Guard units routinely deploy in rotations overseas for about six months at a time as part of overseas U.S. military operations. This delivery of $17,634 worth of free morale and well-being gifts from Americans was gathered through a promotion in which Bayer Healthcare presented a Dr. Scholl’s buy-one give-one opportunity in every Walmart across the country. And boy did folks respond! Isn’t the American Way a great way to live?
