I reached out to Operation Troop Appreciation (OTA)for an item our unit needed but had trouble getting the funds to purchase. After receiving my request OTA quickly filled the order. Their service not only helped our unit but allowed us to better train/educate others.

We are a unit in southwest Asia, who have received outstanding support from OTA! No hesitation in recommending this organization - if you can provide your support, it will definitely be passed to the troops over here!

I wish I could guve them 10 stars! Most support non profits only send boxes of goodies, but this organization sent items we requested. Because of there amazing support and going way above and beyond, my unit deemed me the care package master because it wasn't the normal food items. They sent a bunch of cool gear we requested. OTA ROCKS!

I am truly honored to be a volunteer at Operation Troop Appreciation. All of the volunteers work as a true team. I love working with the Welcome Home Program to make our Veterans homes as great as our vets are to us.

Absolutely incredible support to deployed military members. While every care package/letter received is great, a lot of the guys don't have families back home helping them get through this. Operation Troop Appreciation meets specific needs identified by the military member. At some camps you can get just about everything needed, at others--many everyday items are in short supply or never available. OTA goes out of their way to hunt it down and get it to us. That kind of personalized support is something you'd normally only get from family. For many, it is the little things that go a long way toward making the time away from home bearable. Thank you and please keep up the great work--your Operation is definitely Appreciated by the Troops!

This review is in regards to my experience with Operation Troop Appreciation.
I am a First Sergeant for a large unit here in Afghanistan. I reached out to these great folks through the internet because I wanted to provide my unit goodies that can appreciate while deployed. They sent out great boxes of things to include Little Debbie Snack cakes, popcorn, candy, beef jerkey and other great items the folks enjoyed. They are a great company that included pics and cards as well. The guys/gals loved it and I sent them pics of them opening their boxes. What a great company, if I could give them 6 starts I would.
Thanks for your support of us Airman deployed in Afghanistan !
God Bless

Operation Troop Appreciation has served our unit, of over 350 personnel. The generous supports have mailed many care packages and letters of encouragement to all of us. We greatly appreciate all of the support they have given us. The kind gestures from all of their volunteers are greatly appreciated and we look forward to their continued support during the remainder of our time here.. From all of us serving overseas we thank you so very much.
