Text Box: I know many of us have mixed emotions about the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, but one thing I feel we all agree on is SUPPORTING OUR TROOPS!  There are dozens of organizations that you can donate money, items, or volunteer to pack care packages to send to our military personnel.  One person that is doing this on his own is TMCA member, Tim Baltz.  Tim is a fireman living in Franklin, Tennessee.  In the last few months, Tim has personally bought and sent out several thousand Psalm 91 Camo Bandanas to our soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan.  If you see Tim at the show, you might want to thank him.
