Hundreds of midstaters gathered at the State Capitol to honor military service members for the 11th annual “Rally for the Troops.”
The rally gives people a chance to show their thanks for everything the men and women in the military do to keep our country safe.
Governor Corbett says the sacrifices made by our troops should not go unrecognized.
“Let me just say on behalf of all Pennsylvanians, thank you,” he announced during the rally. “Thank you to the veterans, thank you to our troops in the field. Thank you to the families for your sacrifice. You all have kept us safe, you’ve kept us free, and you have made us very proud.”
Giant Foods also presented a check for more than $450,000 to the USO to help the organization’s efforts all across the globe.
