What a wonderful organization filled with high energy patriots. I have been faithfully conducting fundraisers for OSC for the past six years with the full knowledge that they will ensure that all the money we raise goes towards support our nation's heroes and their families.

We all love you Cindy McGrew!

Operation second chance is the best truest to it's name of any organization.They help injured soldiers as soon as they are injured and go to walter reed. They keep families fly out and visit the injured soldier to building a house for them. They take them out to games and fishing And hunting. They truly help hundreds of soldiers that have been injured with no legs or blind in one eye as a sniper. The president Cindy mcgrew was going for ten years every day to walter reed. They deserve to win the best organization.

I have had the privilege of meeting OSC's founder, Cindy McGrew who exemplifies the spirit of volunteerism. She left a success career to begin this foundation after being moved by the soldiers in Walter Reed. She is not afraid to get her hands dirty and helps at every level; she is not a mere figurehead and face of this organization. Her love for these brave men and women is evident and her passion to help them is abundant.

My husband is a wounded warrior, therefore I have the opportunity to come in contact with many non-profits.
Operation Second Chance is one of the few non-profits that have impressed me this much. I went to them and asked for help with a situation and the next day my need was met ! Amazing organization.

Good Morning,

I want to thank Operation Second Chance for giving me the tickets to the Wizards Game. My family loved every minute of it. Tickets to watch a game in an NBA suite was a chance I probably wouldn't of had, if it wasn't for all the wonderful things that you all do! You all are awesome!!!!

V/r,

Operation Second Chance is an Amazing organization that has far exceeded my expectations for support. I was injured in Afghanistan in July of 2013. I sustained several injuries, one of which was significant vision loss in my right eye due to shrapnel from a rocket hitting my face. OSC has covered the cost for a back up camera and installation in my new truck. In turn this has given me the opportunity to be a safer driver not only for myself but people around me. Since I cant see well enough out of my right eye, there are much more blind spots while backing up or switching lanes. This back-up camera covers those blind spots. Now I have great confidence in my ability to drive safely! Thank you OSC and all of the donors for making this possible!

Operation Second Chance is a wonderful organization and resource for our beloved men and women of uniform who have sacrificed so much. Many nonprofits in my opinion waste so much time and precious resources and fail not to touch the core need, this organization understands that need and delivers. I can clearly testify from many angles of observation of OSC events that a smile from a hero is badge of honor for the organization. God-speed Operation Second Chance!

Operation Second Chance is pretty phenomenal...I really appreciate the camaraderie I feel when hanging with some of the other Warriors and their families. I also understand that I wouldn't have met a lot of great people including the staff . My wife and I really appreciated some of the events that we have been to attend, it gave us a chance to do something that we may have never done otherwise.

I've had the privilege to be involved with several events with Operation Second Chance. Their helpful volunteers go to the extreme to provide support for injured prior service members. They offer an opportunity for these individuals to enjoy being able to regain the lost feeling of comradery. Meeting with the individuals being provided support has been an en-lighting experience for myself. I got to see first hand, the smiles and genuine feelings of happiness these young men were able share when we met. The brothership is a bond we all will share forever. OSC is an organizaton I will always support any way possible.
