COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – An 18 year-old Army cadet from Tennessee Technical University founded an organization that provides entertainment to troops.
Cadet Kaylee Marie Radzyminski’s Tunes 4 Troops Campaign has received recognition numerous times.
Radzyminski says it’s important to support U.S. troops and created the Tunes 4 Troops Campaign as a way of saying thanks to the men and women serving our country. The campaign sends donated CDs, DVDs and audio books to American troops serving in combat zones. Since 2005, Kaylee Marie and her volunteers have sent 600,000 donated discs abroad.
“I wanted to show that kids are ambitious, and have a strong sense of pride,” Radzyminski said. “I started Tunes 4 the Troops to let the service members around the world know who they are serving and fighting for. I have a future to look forward to because of sacrifices made for me and all other Americans.”
“I know I am just one girl, but I have a voice, and I will use it to say thank you to all who are serving in the Armed Forces of the United States.”
Radzyminski was awarded a 4-year scholarship to Tennessee Tech and began school this Fall. Learn more about her campaign at http://www.tunes4thetroops.com.
