During the event, a PODS® container will be positioned in the hotel parking lot to safely and securely store the donated items and letters. The public is encouraged to drop off the following necessities to help support the military servicemen and women during their deployments:
“PODS Las Vegas is proud to be a part of this event to assist our servicemen and women in their effort to defend our freedom and our country,” said Hector Reyes, general manager of PODS Las Vegas. “We are honored to provide our moving and storage services for this event so that when our troops are overseas they will know that they are not forgotten.”
The public will also have a chance to meet service members of the military who are stationed at Nellis Air Force Base and “adopt” them by giving their support and encouragement throughout their military journeys.
“Our servicemen and women sacrifice a lot to keep our country safe. It is great to know that we are not forgotten when we are away from home,” said Staff Sgt. Brian Pyles of Nellis Air Force Base. “We thank PODS Las Vegas for donating their services and their support of our troops.”
PODS Las Vegas is proud to partner with Las Vegas Beasley Broadcast radio stations for the Adopt a Serviceman 2013 event.

About Adopt a Serviceman
Adopt a Serviceman links military men and women who are stationed away from home or about to be deployed with civilian families or individuals who wish to become pen-pals. Approximately 85 percent of the American population is touched by the military and whether or not you support their missions, they need to know that they are thought about, cared for and loved by their friends, families and communities at home. Adoptaserviceman.com helps to bridge the gap between civilians and military personnel by facilitating on-going relationships through the simple act of keeping in touch. From the initial introductions to providing guidance on what to send to your adopted serviceman, adoptaserviceman.com will support you in supporting them.
