They're our loved ones...our children, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, husbands and wives. They're soldiers. And from all of us who appreciate the protection and freedoms our military provides, we say THANK YOU!

All summer Star 99.1 & Operation Jersey Cares will be creating care packages to send to our troops overseas. Let a soldier know you care and support their efforts by purchasing and dropping off items that can be included in these packages.

The first drop off is June 7th at the front gates of Six Flags Great Adventure during Celebration 2014.  See the sidebar for a list of needed items.  Continue to check our website often as drop off dates and locations will be added to the Star Calendar throughout the summer.

I just wanted to send a quick thank you for the package we received today here in Afghanistan. I think I speak for my whole company when I say that we greatly appreciate what you do by sending us a piece of home while we are away from home and our families. The box you sent lasted about 30 minutes once all of the Soldiers caught wind that there was mail for them, lol. Believe me I'm not complaining. Anything to help raise the morale of the Soldiers is always a good thing and much appreciated. Again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts and please keep up what y'all do for us.
