Backpack Brigade: Operation Homefront

Frequent Flyer B

This episode of Red Belly Radio was recorded in Dallas and in Denver and it is about a triple header of events. Denver launched some new non-stop service; we opened up a new Provisioning base in Denver; and we handed off a bunch of backpacks and school supplies to some great kids who have a parent service in Iraq or Afghanistan.

I interview Angela from Operation Homefront ( about her organization and what this means to these kids. Also, have you ever wonder what Provisioning does? Well Chuck Martin, the Provisioning manager in Denver, gives us the official answer.
