Programs: . Providing a means for the American public to support and serve our troops deployed overseas, their families, military personnel at home and our veterans without impacting resources . A major part of this support being to coordinate the public, our volunteers, corporations, other organizations and the media in an interdependent effort to create Civilian Rations(R), individual baggies each coontaining a personal note and some goodies from home that they miss. . With OI nothing is wasted, and items that do not meet OI shipping standards are given to military families and our veterans. Such donations represent 40% of OI's total distribution. Our current monthly reach is equivalent to 30,000 C-rats delivered. . Ongoing national and grassroots activity through our 15 distribution centers nationwide.

Operation Interdependence provides a unique and efficient Civilian-to-Military Delivery System(R)delivering care from civilians at home in the form of C-rats, individual baggies each containing a personal note and some goodies from home that they miss. OI volunteers pack and ship 50 C-rats per 12 inch cube box, enough for an entire platoon with no one left out. Enough C-rats are sent so that at mail call everyone in the unit gets a package. For many, it''s the only communication from home they receive. For the civilians at home OI provids a means to communicate their support to the troops efficiently, working with the military delivery system, so the public has a means to communicate their thoughts and well wishes to those deployed overseas on their behalf.
