Award-winning country music darling, Gretchen Wilson, kicked off her cowboy boots and slipped into a pair of combat boots to show her gratitude for our armed forces. It's all part of the Boot Campaign's 'get YOUR boots on' mission. By posing in her combat boots, Wilson is saying 'thank you' for the hard work and sacrifices made by the men and women in the U.S. Military. Wilson joins a growing chorus of celebrities, professional athletes, politicians, business leaders and Americans who are getting THEIR boots on for our troops.
"This is such a simple and really effective campaign to bring attention to men and women who serve our country all over the world to protect our freedom, and I am very proud to be a part of it," says Gretchen Wilson.

THE BOOT CAMPAIGN
The Boot Campaign is a grassroots initiative started by five women from Texas
known as the Boot Girls. The Boot Campaign provides an easy and tangible way for Americans to show support for our troops (both past and present) that's practical and directly benefits our military who are returning home from active duty. Proceeds from boot sales are donated to partner charities, including the Lone Survivor
Foundation, which assist returning veterans dealing with Post Traumatic Stress
Disorder (PTSD) and varying degrees of physical injuries.
What better way to say thank you to our returning troops than by sporting a pair of boots just like theirs? So join thousands of fellow Americans and get YOUR boots ON! In return you get a personal thank-you card for your donation in the form of boots that you can proudly wear any day of the week and for every occasion!
