MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMOT)  --  A Tennessee based organization has sent more than $2 million worth of care packages to American troops deployed overseas.

Memphis based Operation Troop Aid is the brainchild of 21-year Navy veteran Mark Wood. Wood was serving on the U.S.S. Enterprise on 9-11. He was inspired to do something more for service men and women following a visit to the ship by country music great Garth Brooks.

Woods says the care packages Troop Aid sends include a variety of items.
