The seven-hour, patriotic extravaganza was presented as a partnership between Newsmax TV and Move America Forward, the nation's largest pro-troop grassroots organization, and will feature movie stars and TV personalities, elected officials, pro athletes, musicians and talk radio hosts.

"All Americans can agree that our troops deserve our love and support and the cause we come together to support is incredibly important," said Melanie Morgan, co-host and executive producer of "Troopathon 11."

"With thousands of troops still on the ground in Afghanistan, we cannot forget their continued service and sacrifice. Troopathon remains steadfast in our commitment to supporting our troops in harm's way."

Morgan was joined by "Newsmax Now" anchor John Bachman and Rita Cosby, the Emmy-winning journalist who hosts "The Rita Cosby Show" on WABC Radio and is a special correspondent for the newsmagazine "Inside Edition."

"Melanie and the Troopathon team are once again doing a tremendous service for America's servicemen and women,” Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy said in a statement. “They haven't forgotten those who are sacrificing to keep us safe and we are proud to share their incredible work with our audience."

Troopathon brings together an amazing array of guests from every type of industry. Some of this year's guests include Dean Cain, Joe Mantegna, Rich Little, Tony Orlando, Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingraham, Eric Bolling, Wayne Allyn Root, Nancy Grace, Charlie Daniels, Monica Crowley, Mike Krzyzewski, Chuck Woolery, Gina Loudon, Willie Robertson, Mike Rowe, Chef Robert Irvine, Tomaczek Bednarek, and Jack Posobiec.

The first Troopathon in 2008 raised an unprecedented $1.2 million in care packages for the troops. Through 2017, Troopathon events have raised more than $5.25 million in sponsorships, enabling the group to send over 360 tons (that's right, tons!) of care packages to troops overseas.

These packages are put together with love and include letters of support, along with food favorites like Rogers Family gourmet coffee, Oreo cookies, beef jerky, Gatorade, Planters nuts, and other gourmet treats. Also in the packages are personal care items such as towels, lip balm, deodorant, sun block, and many other useful items often requested by the troops.

With compelling original shows such as "The Jesse Lee Peterson Show," "Newsmax Now," "America Talks Live," "The Wayne Allyn Root Show," "The Brett Winterble Show," "The Howie Carr Show," "The Joe Walsh Show," "The Joe Pags Show," and "The Schnitt Show," Newsmax TV has become the nation's must-watch news, lifestyle, and information channel.
