As Republicans, we respect the “call of duty” for the men and women who serve in our Armed Forces both here and abroad. We feel it is our duty to honor them by answering our own “call to duty.”

We will be collecting items to send to those service men and women deployed in dangerous areas overseas. Please help us honor them by contributing an item.
