Day of the Deployed

As Troy walks across America and back he carries with him several custom Louisville Slugger bats with an inscription that reads “National Day Of the Deployed”. The Bat represents a petition for a National Day for our nations deployed soldiers.

*Soldiers’ Angels started a day to honor deployed heroes and their families on October 26, 2006 called Day of the Deployed. We asked Americans to reaffirm their patriotism and allegiance to our flag and country, and to honor our brave men and women in uniform who are selflessly putting their lives on the line to protect and preserve our way of life and to support the families left behind. Most governors across the nation have signed the proclamation. For more information, please contact DayoftheDeployed@SoldiersAngels.org or contact (218) 779-7271.
