Camp Pendleton Living

So what’s Troopster’s connection with Camp Pendleton? Troopster Chief Outreach Officer, Chipp Naylon, served as a Marine aboard Camp Pendleton, deploying as an infantry officer with 1st Battalion, 5th Marines.  With his knowledge of Camp Pendleton and Troopster’s overarching mission of helping military families, we figured we’d pass on some of our base knowledge. Specifically, we hope to educate military families by providing a one-stop shop for everything you need to know about Camp Pendleton.

USS Little Rock & Troopster

On December 16th, 2017, the US Navy’s newest vessel, the littoral combat ship (LCS) USS Little Rock was formally commissioned in Buffalo, NY.  Troopster, a veteran-owned business that lets friends and families of deployed service members buy military care packs and personalize them with notes and photos from home on its website, served as an official sponsor for the event.  As a sponsor, Troopster helped underwrite the costs of a week’s worth of commissioning festivities.  

Best Military Blog

As veterans with multiple combat and non-combat deployments, we here at Troopster know that supporting loved ones overseas can be a complex and ever-changing process.  To help people through the process and stay on top of any changes, we decided to incorporate a military blog into our website.  This way, if we learn about anything that impacts friend and family support to troops overseas, we can keep you posted!

Want to Give Back on Memorial Day?

It’s easy to get caught up in the delicious barbeques and beginning of summer festivities associated with Memorial Day.  But, it’s also important to reflect on the sacrifices this holiday commemorates.  While Veterans Day honors all individuals who have served, Memorial Day honors those who have given the last full measure of devotion, dying in service to this great nation.

What is an FPO Address?
