A group of Indiana soldiers serving in Afghanistan were the special guest VIP's of a charity event hosted by former NFL quarterback Jim McMahon Thursday night.

McMahon, some of his former player friends and celebrities talked live to the Hoosier soldiers via a satellite link made possible by Fox59. The Indiana National Guardsmen and women were happy to field a few questions because they knew the money raised from the room full of VIP's was going to help wounded soldiers, marines and their families.

"Is there anything you need we can get care packages out to you anything like that?"

"We can't have any alcohol so if you drink a beer for us that would be great just be sure you tip your wait staff," a soldier responded.

"I have always had a fondness for the military and I have been working with them for 25 years now and it's been great," said McMahon.
