This week, we’re once again asking you to join us to help Warrior Foundation Freedom Station, a fantastic organization that aims to send ill and injured service members home for Christmas.

Our rather ambitious goal this year (given the pandemic) is to raise $500,000 by 10am Pacific on Friday, November 20.  In spite of the challenges brought-on by the pandemic, we’re confident that with your help--we can do it!  

One of reasons we're involved with Warrior Foundation Freedom Station is due to the presence of a true angel. There's simply no other way to put it--Sandy Lehmkuhler is an angel.

Listen to the Armstrong & Getty Select Cuts Podcast to learn about how Sandy started the Warrior Foundation Freedom Station with one simple idea in mind....
