During the pilot: Season 1 - Episode 1: It was revealed that Finn's dad was Killed In Action during the Gulf War on terrorism.
Did you know that the Ohio National Guard has a unit from the Lima Ohio area deploying to the gulf this fall. Glee is based in a High School in Lima, OH. As a fan of our Military Personnel serving our country and Glee, it makes sense to me that the one type of show they can do is a Military Appreciation/Patriotic themed show.
Think about it Glee can do this show during November or early December including the students of the Glee club & other students writing letters, signing and personalizing some of our cards, and/or collecting items for care packages. They can send all letters, cards, and items collected to the unit from Lima and if sent by the second week in December they can be in the Gulf by Christmas or New Years.
Any episode would be awesome to do this because our troops are still over there and need our continued support.
Songs that could be included:
Star Spangled Banner, God Bless America, Proud to be an American, Just a Dream, Letters from Home, American Soldier and Traveling Soldier to name a few. If they need a dance number look no further than Candy Man by Christina Aguilera.
Visit Glee's website and ask them to do this show and make a difference for our troops!

Think about this for a minute:
10 minutes VS 24/7/365
10 minutes to write a letter to say hi and we are thinking about you, versus, the 24/7/365 life and death situations these men and women are going through everyday to defend the freedoms we enjoy.
During an hour long TV show there are between 16 and 20 minutes of commercials.
Think about this, if each one of us would take just 17 minutes a month to write a note to our troops, no serviceman or woman would ever go without receiving a piece of mail to let them know they are being thought of.
How do I know there are 16 -20 minutes of commercials? I work at night and sometimes I miss my favorite TV show Grey’s Anatomy, when I get home I watch it online and according to the timeline it is between 43-45 minutes long and there are 2 minutes of commercials online.
