Pollard can't say where her son, Rusty, is deployed. But she said she's been heartened and moved by the big response.
In addition to the shirts, she's asking for notes of encouragement for deployed soldiers. She plans to place one in each shirt pocket.
“It’s just something small so we can do to brighten their day a little bit and give them something to laugh about,” Pollard told The Blaze. “These boys wouldn’t normally wear these shirts out in public, but it’s something fun for them.”
As of earlier this week, Pollard had already collected about 150 shirts.
If she gets more than the 300 she needs for her son and his unit, she plans to send them out out to other Army units.
