Eagles Cheerleaders To Cheer Up Troops in Iraq

The Philadelphia Eagles cheerleaders are true American heroines. Not only are they saving the environment one bikini at a time, the gorgeous gals will soon be shipping out to entertain our fighting forces overseas.

Eagles Cheerleaders heading to Iraq

(The fab five who are heading to the Middle East)

CBS 3 in Philadelphia rah-rahs the news that five Eagles girls have been selected to travel to Iraq, where they’ll tantalize the troops with a specially- produced routine. (To find out what it is, go to your nearest Army recruiting center. They’d love to have you!)

In addition to packing their pom-poms, the Eagles gals will also be bringing along over 1,000 letters from Philly-area students showing support for those serving our nation. (The Eagles are also giving fans an opportunity to leave their own well-wishes to the troops on the team’s website.)

The ladies are scheduled to leave for their 12-day trip on Sunday. And for one cheerleader, it will be more than just a normal meet & greet.

Rachel Washburn is an ROTC cadet & will be heading for Airborne school this summer. And the upcoming tour will give her a taste of what to expect in the armed forces:

“This a dream come true to be able to go to Iraq and really give something back to the troops, a family that I am going to be part of in a couple of years, I am just so glad to experience it from this end.”

Protecting Mother Earth, protecting our country - is there anything these fabulous Philly females can’t do?
