Troops Find Gratitude, Entertainment at 500
Sirois' company [Checker's/Rally's] is an "America Supports You" corporate team member and an "Operation Gratitude" corporate sponsor. America Supports You is a Defense Department program that highlights grassroots and corporate support of the nation's servicemembers. Indianapolis Motor Speedway joined the organization last year. Operation Gratitude is a California-based grassroots troop-support organization that has sent more than 125,000 packages since its creation in March 2003.
