Thanking the troops, One-woman USO

It's always a good time to give thanks to the troops but for one California woman it's a full-time job.
She runs Operation Gratitude.
Fredricka Whitfield has her incredible story.

    ask the city of new orleans why it has so many deaths that are unsolved, murders ,criminal activity, that they dont care to take care of, why the police cant be trusted, why no politican can be trusted, for what ever reason, you leave the door open for open for dead body counts

    Fredericka, you have already given these folks way too much attention. Ignore them. Maybe then they will just go away. Continue reporting on the breach, but stop showing the films of these losers.

    Thanks!

    The thought that someone can walk right into our white house scare's me to death. How did they get that far, and who else could get in there? Our safety in this country is already being compromised and our military is putting their live's in jeopordy to keep us safe. My son included. Now some wanna be reality star's waltz right up in there just because they want attention. Pleez, go to a network if you want to be on a reality show, there are plenty of them out there.

    How come the USO has not engaged into something like this? The One-woman USO has touched a lot of hearts. The California woman has a great idea without the USO. It should be a good time to always give thanks to the troops. She is running a great Operation of Gratitude.
