MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Sgt. Push-Up made his way back to Alabama this time spreading a message to children about germs.

Sgt. Push-Up, an Iraq war veteran whose real name is Patrick Parker, held a book giveaway at Montgomery Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics on Wednesday for his new book, “Sgt. Push-Up talks to kids about germs.”

“So with this book, it helps reinforce what children already know, washing their hands, keeping their friends safe, making sure that they clean their areas, keep their hands away from their face, all the things that the CDC is telling us to do,” Sgt. Push-Up said of the book.

As always, he continued sharing his message by doing push-ups. For every book donated he pledged to do 20 pushups.

“So, you donate 1000 books, and me and a friend going to give you 10,000 push-ups,” Sgt. Push-Up added.

Even Dr. David Stanley and Dr. Frank Litchfield joined in on the push up action.
