Part 6 of The Troop Drive Has Started - See Contest Prizes!

Part 6 of the Proud Of Our Troops has begun with Taylor Hicks' new CD titled "The Distance." Jewelry Sprout is sponsoring the Proud Of Our Troops drive. We are asking everyone to please support and uplift our troops by sending them the CD from American Idol winner Taylor Hicks. The CD is titled "The Distance." Show your love and thanks to our troops and give them something that will lift their spirits and give them musical enjoyment during their off time. Some of our troops do not receive any mail. It is very sad. Please show you care and join in our drive. Soldiers' Angels, at, is taking care of shipping the CD's to the troops. We appreciate everything that Soldiers' Angels does to help with the Proud Of Our Troops drive!

This CD includes a great song for the military titled "Nineteen." Such a touching tribute to the heroes of our military who gave their lives for our country.

The Proud Of Our Troops drive started in June of 2006. Since then, over 6,000 of Taylor's CD's and books have been sent to soldiers overseas, and also to soldiers who were wounded in active duty and who recuperated in hospitals.

All information on how to send the CD's is below. Thank you very much!


You no longer have to ship each CD separately. Also, you no longer have to pack each cd in a manilla envelope before inserting it in a box. You can put all the cd's in one box. The purpose of individual packing was so that each soldier received a note or letter with the cd. You can still do it that way if you choose, however it is not mandatory.

If you would like to ship the CD's from an online store directly to Soldiers' Angels, that is fine too. and other sites have a free gift card option. Please utilize this feature so you can add a little note for the soldier who receives the CD. It's nice for them to have something to read to go along with their CD.

Please do not send anything else besides CD's. Our drive is only for the "The Distance" CD by Taylor Hicks. We do not want to be responsible for anything sent that is illegal or that other countries might consider offensive material being shipped into their country.

Please do not send homemade CD's or anything that is burned. They are considered bootlegged CD's and are illegal.

Many people have asked if it is okay to send CD's that have been opened. That is fine, as long as there are no scratches on the CD.

You do not need to fill out a customs form, as Soldiers Angels is taking care of all the shipping to our troops.

Proud Of Our Troops Drive Contest!

The Proud Of Our Troops drive is holding a contest from March 10, 2009 to April 10, 2009. Simply purchase the Taylor Hicks CD titled "The Disance" and send the CD to Soldiers' Angels at the above address. Email a copy your CD receipt to and you will be entered in the contest. You can block your address off the receipt if you are not comfortable with sending that part. Enter as many times as you wish. Your name will be entered each time you send a CD to Soldiers' Angels. The prizes are below:

Sterling Silver cuff bracelet signed by Taylor Hicks. Coated over signature with a strong clear finish so that the signature becomes waterproof and the bracelet can be worn. Light silver smudge over a bit of the bracelet, as the bracelet had to be signed twice. The first time was signed in liquid silver but did not show up very well, so the liquid silver was taken off and the bracelet was signed in black instead. Smudge adds some "Taylor charm" to the bracelet! Bracelet donated by Jewelry Sprout.

Barbie as Sandy from Grease. Celebrating 30 years of Grease. Barbie comes with a stand and plays the Grease theme song. Box was never opened. Barbie was donated by the Brooks Atkinson Theatre.

Grease CD donated by the Brooks
Atkinson Theatre.

The contest begins March 10, 2009 and ends April 10, 2009. There will be more troop drive contests after this one with lots of great prizes!
