Military Network Radio with Linda Kreter and Co-host Jason McNamara Presents:
Operation Teammate: MilKids & Sports Teams Unite for Community –
Marques Ogden, former NFL player and now author, and motivational speaker, shares how the inclusion of elite athletes who model great civic behavior and support these children and youth through organized teams and events makes a difference. Athletes give presence beyond the playing field, and illustrations are provided showing this worthy and needed component for military and first responder families. As Marques said on the program, “hearing advice from an elite athlete has significant impact, often beyond that of a parent”.
Pairing military and first responder children with local sports teams (who make them honorary members during separations) gives a unique and unforgettable experience. It’s our pleasure to bring attention to the recognition and connection needs of children who serve. Learn more at www.OperationTeammate.org.
