Exclusive Interview with 4Troops – and a Twitter Contest for #MilitaryMon


Can’t get enough of 4Troops?  Neither can we!

Fresh off appearances on Fox and Friends Friday and Good Morning America, the group is poised to make a big splash with their self-titled debut album, available everywhere April 20.  Our favorite part?  A portion of proceeds will benefit the USO and other charities that support Troops and veterans.

In honor of #MilitaryMon on Twitter, they’ve put together a contest just for their fans!  From Monday March 22 – Monday March 29, Twitter users can follow @4troops on Twitter and retweet this message: “#militarymon @4troops performing on QVC 3-29-10 from 12-1pm – Tune In! Make Music to Support…the Troops!”  Five users will be chosen at random to win a 4Troops CD & t-shirt set.

No Twitter?  No problem!  The members of 4Troops – Daniel Jens, Meredith Melcher, David Clemo, and Ron Henry (L to R in photo at right) – recently sat down with USO Radio to talk music, the military, and how their group came to be.  Take a moment to learn more about their inspiring story…

USO Radio

In this edition of USO Radio, Jim Mayer and Michael Naranjo are two wounded veterans from Vietnam. But they share more than that. They share the common bond of not only overcoming their injuries, but also excelling and giving back long after they had left the battlefield.

Their stories and more are featured in this special episode of what we are calling USO Radio, featuring Blues Traveler’s Forever Owed. Hear Mayer’s and Naranjo’s story – and more, including an exclusive look at the United Through Reading program – by clicking on the image above.
