American Family Association Helps Fill Military Families’ Gas Tanks at Special Fort Campbell Event
‘Operation Tank Full of Love’ on Saturday, Sept. 21, Will Minister Financially and Spiritually to America’s Military Families
TUPELO, Miss.—American Family Association (AFA, www.afa.net) knows the value military families are to America’s heritage, strength and freedom.
Now, AFA and American Family Radio (AFR, www.afr.net) are partnering with Eric Horner Ministries, once again, for an outreach to military families. “Operation Tank Full of Love” is a way for Americans to thank those who serve our country by providing them with the gift of a free tank of gasoline at a truck stop just outside Fort Campbell, Kentucky, on Saturday, Sept. 21.
“This may seem like a small gesture,” said AFA President Tim Wildmon, “but it’s more than just a free tank of gas. A team of volunteers will be on hand to pray with every soldier and his or her family Bibles and Christian literature will also be provided so these families know that God loves them very much.”
Through “Operation Tank Full of Love,” the body of Christ can also be the hands and feet of Jesus to those who defend our freedom. Since its inception in 2010, more than 12,000 soldiers have received gifts of free gasoline and the gospel, as God’s people have provided almost $300,000 in donations.
Those interested may make tax-deductible gifts specifically for the “Operation Tank Full of Love” initiative on Sept. 21 or may serve as a volunteer or prayer partner. These volunteers come from a 100-mile radius and have even traveled from states as far away as Florida, Texas and the Carolinas to show their appreciation and support for America’s military families.

The soldiers serving at Fort Campbell deploy all over the world and are able to take the love and appreciation they experience at “Operation Tank Full of Love” with them wherever they may go.
“Let’s support our soldiers by offering to cover the cost of a tank of gas for them and their family,” Wildmon added. “We hope many Americans will prayerfully consider being a part of ‘Operation Tank Full of Love’ and, most importantly, we hope all will remember to pray for those who serve daily. We owe them a great debt of gratitude. This is a great and simple way to do something that contributes to the overall wellness of our military families, both financially and spiritually. And it’s a source of encouragement to them as they carry out their calling of ensuring liberty.”
