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.

Remembering those who care for those who served. Operation Second Chance is an outstanding organization that recognizes the service of family members who are caring for our wounded warriors. I love them and they have helped us have some much needed R and R.

I love the fact that OSC sees that the veterans and their families NEED to be able to come together. Being able to participate in activities with other soldiers and their families is huge during and after treatment. Thank you for bringing us together!

I love Operation Second Chance. When I look for nonprofits to donate my time and money, I look for an organization that works as hard for my money as I do. OSC does amazing work with a low overhead. Our nations service members gave so much and they deserve so much more then we give them! THANK YOU Operation Second Chance for helping our veterans!

Operation Second Chance was a life line for my family and myself in order to catch up on our past due bills as well as to prevent us from falling severely behind again while waiting on the VA to release payment to me and my wife. Times have been very hard when my wife’s military career was brought to an abrupt end through medical retirement from the U.S. Army with a VA disability rating of 90% after 14 years of faithful, dedicated and loyal service. When she retired she did not receive her first VA payment for about 6 months which during that time made us a single income family. As for me I have a 100% permanent and total VA disability rating from my service to my country in Iraq. I served on a Military Transition Team for the 4/1 Iraqi Army Quick Reactionary Force and we spent our time taking care of bad guys from Baghdad to Kurdistan and along the Iranian border. My primary job on our team was to serve as the team’s medic caring for over 3200 IA Soldiers and Leaders, my 10 man team as well both enemy and friendly civilian casualties. This grant was absolutely a necessity because our pay was reduced and savings depleted to compensate just to grocery shop. This grant will brought us current with our most vital bills and that is ensuring that my family has a roof over its head, a functional house and food to eat. The level of concern for me the individual that I received was phenomenal, I felt like I proud American Soldier and that someone cared about that feeling. I will always be grateful for the assistance ad love me and my family felt. Thank you so much for what you are doing for the families of our service men and women, because that is who we have given so much for and some gave all for. Again, thank you in advance for your assistance and just for your existence.
