I recently had a death in the family and my bride and I had to fly to California last second to be with my family. I called Operation Second Chance (OSC) and they took care of my flights with no questions asked. I felt horrible because it was a last minute flight. But Cindy told me not to worry about it and for us to go be with my family. It was also pretty late at night when I called. Cindy and OSC are absolutely amazing! I met Cindy when they were just starting out and to be honest, I do t know where I'd be without her. She has been there for me more times than I can count. Thank you so, so much Ci day and OSC!!!

I can not begin to express my thanks to OSC! While I am employed, I am currently out of work for treatment. I am just amazed at their quick response and professionalism. As a father of two disabled kids just making it by, I was not prepared for this hardship even after using credit and our little retirement savings we had. I am grateful that I am able to get the mental health treatment I need, without having to risk loosing our power or water or getting foreclosed. We have always been good with managing our finances, but life comes at you fast and Operation Second Chance is amazing!

Thank you
Cooley Family

I've been working with Operation Second Chance for over 3 years now. This is an incredible organization. Out of all the Wounded Warrior Orgs that I have been a part of OSC hands down has done more for me and my family then any other. Its been a complete blessing to have been lucky enough to be involved with them. They have been there for me at every corner ready and able to provide assistance. If they didn't have the answer or know how to fix something they got me in touch with people who could. There Montana chapter is phenomenal as well. They treat their warriors like a family! Just an all-around amazing organization being ran by amazing people.

I am a veteran and was having some issues taking care of a behind mortgage payment, I spoke with Operation Second Chance and they were not only able to help me, they also sent the check out the next day. They really helped me and my family out.

I'm writing this review on behalf of a veteran who has cancer. He is so grateful for his gift cards he will use to catch up on bills and visit his elderly mother on her birthday. He greatly appreciates Operation Second Chance support in his time of need! Great organization!

Girl Scout Troop 1369 volunteers at events to help Operation Second Chance help military families. Recently, we hosted a military card making table at Second Chance Auto Show in Germantown. We host military card making tables at local events and our school. With the help of OSC these cards and our donated cookies will find soldiers and vets in need of well wishes and love.

The troop leader's husband earned 2 Purple Hearts, 1 Silver Star and 2 Bronze Stars. OSC along with the Rehoboth Beach Community put together an amazing no cost 5 day vacation for the family. The family had no clue that they'd be treated like royalty and have everything at their finger tips such as help and understanding with the needs of the MS stricken veteran and the passing of the wife's mother only two days prior to the trip. Most vacations are stressful with prepping and praying that everything goes as planned. Knowing that there were people in the Rehoboth Community ready to assist with the family bumps took boulders off of their shoulders.

We appreciate and welcome OSC moving into our Germantown community!!

We had fell behind with our electric and our mortgage knowing we had very little money this month. After placing a phone call I was told it would be roughly two weeks, they were wrong! After close to just 1 week our past due electric bill was paid and a check in the mail for our mortgage. Knowing how much Operation Second Chance helped our family is amazing; the time we needed someone the most this organization came through. We are truly blessed and grateful!

Operation Second Chance is an organization like no other, reason being is that from the Cordinator in Fredericksburg VA Sara, to the top Cindy, do not only provide assistance and cordinate events but will also listen to what you have to say and become apart of your life, it is a family within an organization who expect nothing else then to see a smile on you and your families face. We are beyond bless to be apart of such an extraordinary organization.

After my husband was wounded, our world completely fell apart. OSC was there to help put the pieces back together and to be a support in any way they could.... Financially, physically, and even emotionally. We are forever grateful to Cindy and OSC. Thank you for being a light during a very dark time.
