This Man Supports The Troops…With Spam!

| Filed under: Inspiration

spam czar supports the troops

And no, we don't mean the e-mail kind!

82-year-old Don Downer is known as the "Spam czar," because he's sent over 1,400 packages of spam to U.S. troops overseas! Wowsa!

The former Marine Corps sergeant has been honored for his support of the troops, and he's also received HUNDREDS of thank you letters from troops in both Afghanistan and Iraq!

Here's what Don had to say about the responses he gets from troops:

"They take time out from fighting a war to respond. It’s just amazing."

Along with spam, Don also stuffs his care packages with oreos, bags of microwave popcorn, Slim Jims, individually wrapped candies, and other snacks.

Don ALSO sends each troop a personal note atop each can of spam.

How inspiring! Thanks for showing so much love and support to the troops, Don! We KNOW they appreciate it!

    At least he's taking the time to do this for our troops! Instead of being so negative, why don't you get out and do something for them. We need more people like this in our world.
