On this Veteran’s Day, I just wanted to express my gratitude and appreciation for the all the veterans who are a part of www.getupnationpodcast.com and www.unitedpatriotmissions.org. Your service continues to this day, and I’m honored to serve alongside you in these organizations.
I also want to express my profound respect and gratitude to Lisa Thompson who has allowed United Patriot Missions to serve a family facing pediatric cancer in honor of her son Dan, who sacrificed his life for our freedom in Afghanistan during February 2009. I had the privilege of knowing Dan and strive to honor his memory by helping and supporting Isaac Strong during United Patriot Missions’ Mission 1.

To those who have served selflessly, are serving selflessly, and will serve selflessly, it is an honor to keep your company and to deploy your continued service in missions that create an America worthy of our fallen.

Just wanted to thank Aaron Kim, Inventor and CEO of www.blitzball.com for donating some Blitz Balls, bats, and an ultra-rare Silver Blitzball to Isaac Strong who is battling pediatric cancer. Less than 1 out of 1000 Blitzballs are silver. They were created to celebrate Blitzball’s 10th anniversary and are certainly an amazing collector’s item!
Blitzball was selected by Mensjournal.com as the 2012 Gear of the Year award winner (https://bit.ly/2AZSM97). Blitzball became “an internet sensation with over 2 million YouTube views along with being featured on other well-known media outlets such as the ESPN TV network, ESPN Magazine, Huffington Post, Bleacher Report, and Popular Science Magazine. With its sales almost doubling in each of the last two years, Blitzball is rapidly becoming a fixture in backyards everywhere (https://bit.ly/2qDClsX).”
Men’s Journal described why Blitzball won their award by saying “Blitzball’s solid surface, composed of 72 sides, cuts down on wind resistance, allowing the sub-one-ounce plastic ball to maintain velocity and spin furiously. Anyone can use it to master a beastly curveball or slider without risking a Tommy John injury.”
At United Patriot Missions, I can personally validate the following quote from the Journal Sentinel article available at https://bit.ly/2qDClsX about CEO Aaron Kim. “While much of the Blitzball’s success can be attributed to the product itself, it’s Kim’s personal connection to Blitzball fans and customers that really makes the business special…. ‘All customers and fans on our Blitzball page are special to me and if I can do anything extra for them, I will,’ said Kim, who gives away over $2,000 in video contest prizes each year in addition to providing bonus balls for Blitzball customers who also support the company on Facebook.”
United Patriot Missions is honored Aaron took the time out of his busy schedule to ensure Isaac and his family are able to have some fun family time playing Blitzball and making lasting family memories.

My deep thanks and appreciation to the amazing Chris Strub,
When my team learned Isaac Strong’s brother Tyler had an interest in becoming a You Tuber, we wanted to make sure Isaac’s siblings also received positive support during our outreach to the Johnson Family as they deal with the challenges associated with pediatric cancer. So often during cancer treatment, siblings have to take a back seat to attention, treatments, and time. Today we wanted to do something to make Tyler feel important and special. Aiden, we’re working on something for you too!
So, Tyler, please see these 3 videos from some of the most amazing social media stars out there! They took time out of their extremely busy schedules to make these videos just for you. They are not only amazing people who are doing amazing things with technology, they can also serve as amazing examples for you to follow as you seek to launch your You Tube career. Information about them and their website links are included in the following posts, so you can learn from the very best how to do great things on social media. Congrats, Tyler!
