What does a deployed soldier do when told his replacement helmet will arrive in TWO MONTHS, and he has to go on a mission NOW?

Today we talk with Jake Jones, Director of Donor Development and Strategic Engagement for TroopsDirect.org.

Their motto is "When our troops request it, Troops Direct supplies it, plain and simple."

Jake and his organization step into the gap to get critical equipment to those in harm's way. Supplies are delivered in 10 days, not the multiple month wait created by the large and beaureaucratic military organizations.

To support these efforts, go to http://www.troopsdirect.org

Bill Hart is a coach at Building Champions in Lake Oswego Oregon. He is also the author of the book "White Collar Warrior: Lessons for Sales Professionals from America's Military Elite."
