About Operation Gridiron Airlift
For our troops serving overseas, the simplest gifts from home are always a welcome sight and very much appreciated. And what is more American than a football? Sometimes, just tossing a football around or organizing a friendly game while stationed or deployed overseas can be a welcome diversion, bringing a bit of home to a foreign location. Operation Gridiron Airlift is collecting new as well as used footballs, that are in good condition, that will be sent to our troops serving overseas.
The organizer of Operation Gridiron Airlift is Randy Snow of Kalamazoo, Michigan. He spent 21 years serving in the Michigan Air National Guard and retired as a member of the Battle Creek ANG Base in 2002. Since 2003, he has been covering Indoor and Arena football for various web sites. He has also covered the All American Football League and the Canadian Football League. His work can be found on ArenaFan.com, OurSportsCentral.com and AmericanChronicle.com.
