Tents for Troops T4T logoTents for Troops (T4T), the Castle Rock, Wash.-based nonprofit organization that  aims to provide free camping for active-duty military members, announced that it has added 35 more RV parks to its network.

The new parks range from California to New Hampshire, and include parks in Missouri, Alabama, Tennessee, Florida, New Mexico, Texas, Arizona, Washington, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Illinois, Minnesota and Nebraska, according to the announcement from Charlie Curry, founder of T4T.

“We have some great new volunteers and ambassadors helping us out this year.   Brian and C. Beamon have been huge supporters out west, and Staff Sgt, Chad Franz, an active-duty U.S. Marine from New Hampshire who’s been a great help as well,” Curry said.

In addition to the new parks, T4T will soon be launching a completely overhauled website to greatly increase its capacity and become far more user friendly.  Matthew Pagel of Wisconsin and Todd Engkraf of Washington have been instumental to maiking this change happpen, Curry said..

“We expect to begin testing the website within a week. The updated website will incorporate Google Maps and give us the ability to list our Canadian parks as well,” Curry said.

“Special thanks also goes out to Matt Miller at Newmar for his generous year-end donation,” Curry continued. “I think Matt and his staff at Newmar feel as strongly about our troops as I do and it is great to have that type of support. Newmar also paid for the Tents for Troops booth at the RVIA (Recreation Vehicle Industry Association) show in Louisville this past December where we were joined by retired Vice Adm. Kenneth Floyd and his beautiful wife Debbie. We’re on a roll here, we have some remarkable volunteers and I think 2016 will be the best year ever for Tents for Troops,” Curry said.
