Bobo's Big Adventure

That's right! Another Poker Run! This time to get calling cards for our troops! There's nothing like being able to call home for a few minutes, learn that everything is alright or tell the family that their loved one is still alive and well to decompress the stress of continuous missions. When our soldiers, sailors, air force and marines are stressed out, they are not focused on the mission. When they are not focused on the mission, people can be seriously injured or worse. These cards are real morale boosters.

You can make a difference.
