STS Funk from the USS Frank Cable wrote and we selected his team for the Jolt Gum adopt a unit program.   The Frank Cable’s sole job is to fix submarines  – fast and well.  Thinking about the submariners deep under water in a nuclear powered sardine can…. anyone who can keep them safe gets our vote!!

So our unit for the month of January to kick off the year is his – on the USS Frank Cable.  They’ve actually got 1,000 sailors under their command, making them the largest command on the island of Guam. In STS Funk’s email he wrote… On the USS Frank Cable AS-40, we spend countless days and nights writing and executing thousands of work packages to ensures the U.S. Submarine fleet is able to continue they’re missions and return home safely.  That’s a job for Jolt Gum!

Thank you to STS Funk and everyone on the Frank Cable.  A couple of hundred packs of Jolt Gum are on their way to you!

The Jolt Adopt a Unit in the Armed Forces Program – April 2014

0

Our adopted unit for April is Havoc!

 

We’re humbled by the dedication and commitment of the servicemen and women across all our Armed Forces – in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard.  As the smallest of thank you’s and in small recognition of the hundreds of thousands of them, we have created the Jolt Gum adopt a unit program. Just tell us what makes your unit special and we’d love to make you the recipient of… a whole lotta free gum! Just email us and let us know a little about you and your unit.

Here’s the first – from Havoc Company courtesy of SFC Pulkinen who wrote us to tell us a little about what they do.

Havoc Company, 2nd Squadron, 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment is a M1A1 Tank Company and has a unique mission of providing an opposing forces for United States Army units who are getting ready to deploy to combat operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. Our Company consists of 60 Soldiers as well as 24 vehicles including eight M1A1 tanks. We replicate different roles such as Afghanistan Military Police, Insurgency operations and enemy mounted forces during Decisive Action rotations. We go to the field to train units two weeks a month, ten months out of the year. We often work long hours during NTC rotations since it is our job to ensure units getting ready for combat are properly trained and ready for deployment.

Want your unit to be the next to receive free gum?  Email us and tell us a little about your unit!

Are you as amazing as a 3rd grader?

Are you as amazing as a third grader? 

Two years ago, six-year-old Ben Hinkle sees our “Support the Troops” edition of Jolt Gum in a store and decides he wants to raise money to send the gum to soldiers overseas for Christmas. On his own, he raises enough money to buy three hundred packs of Jolt Gum for the soldiers. We matched him 1 for 1, so because of Ben’s efforts alone, 600 packs of Jolt Gum were sent to soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan in time for the holidays.

Jolt Gum – Yellow Ribbon Edition

Ben says “I only wanted to help soldiers stay awake and smile, and maybe meet a pen pal! Well, I made TONS of pen pals & have even met some of those soldiers!”

This year, Ben decided he wants to raise money again to send Jolt Gum yellow ribbon packs to soldiers overseas. Ben’s having his 9th birthday party this weekend and actually asked that his friends not bring gifts, but help support his goal of sending TWO THOUSAND packs of Jolt gum overseas. What kid does that?

The kindness, generosity, warmth, maturity and patriotism of this kid is astonishing. This past summer Ben decided he wanted to go to the war memorials in DC with his mom and grandparents (his grandfather is a vet) to salute the soldiers who fought and died for our country. The impact this one kid has had on the soldiers overseas can’t be overstated. Several soldiers have gone way out of their way to meet Ben.

We’re of course matching Ben 1-for-1 again this year. And sending him a small birthday present (shhh!) since he’s turning all the presents he was going to get into donations for the troops overseas. If you’d like to support Ben, you can paypal his mom whatever amount you like. Her paypal account is: brejoben at yahoo.com. If for some reason, you prefer US Post, you can send a check to his mom, Brenda Hinkle. Rt 1 Box 52L-1, Lost Creek, WV 26385.He’s not old enough to Chew More, but he sure is doing more.
