WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — WPTV anchor Mike Trim has received a truly high honor for his brave and dedicated service to our country.
Trim, a U.S. Navy veteran, has been appointed to the Board of Directors for Forgotten Soldiers Outreach, a Palm Beach County organization that's been sending monthly care packages to deployed U.S. service members since 2003 to ensure they're supported from the homefront.
Trim enlisted in the U.S. Navy after graduating high school. He served four years aboard the USS McFaul as an information systems technician, a deployment that took him to the Mediterranean and Adriatic Seas.
Trim later graduated from Temple University in Philadelphia with a broadcast journalism degree. He started his television career in 2005 in New York and later Pennsylvania, and moved to South Florida to begin working at WPTV in 2010.
For the last two years, Trim has serves as emcee for Forgotten Soldiers Outreach annual Hero’s Toast Fundraiser, and has participated in packing events with his son, Braden.
"I’m honored to be selected to the Board of Directors," Trim said. "As a Navy veteran, I know all too well the importance of receiving a care package while deployed. This is a way I can give back to the servicemen and women that continue to keep our country safe."
Trim joins fellow WPTV anchor Jay Cashmere on the Board of Directors.
