My daughter Debbie and I became involved with OTA some time ago. We started to help gather requests for items needed for whole families or single vets that we call Welcome Home Kits. and the rest is history. We'll be there any time there is another need of anyone who needs anything. It 's just some thing I'll always love doing . It's an honor to be able to do anything that's needed Marlene

With limited supplies and the thought of how you will be able to acquire simple materials is the normal struggle of a deployed troop. Having great organizations like OTA, who not only go out of their way to find ways to make troops life easier by providing requested items and assisting you throughout the process. Amanda being the Director reached out to me and acquired all the information she needed to make our request the best to her ability. Not only did she receive all the information she needed but maintained an open communication with me to assure everything went well through the process and we received everything. Thank you OTA for all you do and its greatly appreciated.

So happy to support an organization that supports our troops. I was proud to choose Operation Troop Appreciation to be our designated charity in lieu of flowers when my husband, a Vietnam Vet, passed away this year. In his memory, our family wanted to see our troops honored in a way that many Vietnam vets were not upon their return.

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!
