First there was the Ice Bucket Challenge. Now there’s the USO’s #Flex4Forces.

The new cause-driven social media campaign calls on Americans to “show their strength as a Force Behind the Forces by striking a biceps flex in support of our nation’s military,” the USO’s website reads. More than a few country stars have gotten in on the action, Phil Vassar, Garth Brooks and Tim McGraw among them. Phil has gone so far as to donate 15% of the sales from his new album to the cause. Check out some of the highlights below.

The USO has served the men and women of the U.S. Military for more than 75 years. The congressionally charted, private organization relies solely on support from individuals, organizations and corporations for its activities. Show your support by donating here.
