    Liberty Creek Vineyards Launches "Tunes for Troops" Program - The comforts of home = country music

    Liberty Creek Vineyards is bringing country music and a reminder of the comforts of home to U.S. military members serving overseas through "Tunes for Troops," a program run in conjunction with Operation Gratitude. A donation from Liberty Creek will enable Operation Gratitude to include country music compilation CDs in their care packages. Liberty Creek kicked off this patriotic program May 1 and it will run through July 31, 2013.

    Consumers can show their support by visiting LibertyCreekWine.com and entering the unique code found on specially tagged bottles of Liberty Creek Wine. Liberty Creek will express its appreciation by donating $1 per code to Operation Gratitude, up to $10,000. Operation Gratitude will use this donation to provide the special country music compilation CDs for our troops.

    Our troops need reminders of home, and this is a beautiful way to do it! What's more American than country music? Plus, you get to sip on some vino.

    "At Liberty Creek Vineyards, we are very proud of our American roots, and we are privileged to be able to honor the troops who are out there defending our country," says Michael Shastid, Brand Marketing Specialist, Liberty Creek Vineyards. "Operation Gratitude's unending support for U.S. troops over the years has been remarkable, and this partnership has provided the perfect opportunity for us to express our thanks."

    Operation Gratitude sends care packages and letters personally addressed to U.S. Service Members and wounded warriors, and believes music makes the packages even more meaningful.

    "Music can be a powerful motivator, and we have seen first-hand how it can boost morale and lift the spirits of our service men and women," says Carolyn Blashek, Founder of Operation Gratitude. "We are grateful for Liberty Creek’s support of 'Tunes for Troops' as we seek to provide some degree of comfort to those troops who are far from home."

    Amen to that.
