Thousands of men and women in the military have received a "not-so-big" piece of fabric made into a Bandana with the Holy Scripture, Psalm 91 printed on it. This Bandana can be used for so many things, such as a sweat rag, wash cloth, a tourniquet, sand mask, and especially a reminder of a promise from God how He protects us from the storms of life. All of this due to a special lady answering God's call. What peace and comfort this gives these service men and women as well as any/all who read and believe. From the letters, emails, etc. received by the Bandana Operation it makes one weep with joy when hearing what these have meant to them

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Not only enjoying fellowship with others as we fold and prepare the Bandanas for shipping, also reading the letters and responses from those having received them.

I gave a psalm 91 bandana to a friend who was deploying to a dangerous area in Irag. At a family dinner given for him upon his return home a year later, he pulled out the bandana from his pocket. He passed it around the table and asked everyone to look at it. When it returned to him, with a crack in his voice, he told his family members the significance of the bandana. He said that he had it with him 24/7 (except the shower!) the entire time he was deployed. Obviously this simple piece of material with God's word printed on it gave him a great sense of peace and safety each time he was in harm's way. With tears in her eyes, his mother related this story to me. The deployed chaplains say that the minute their boxes of bandanas are opened, they vanish in a minute. This group is doing a wonderful thing for our military men and women. Every bandana which is sent out, is paid for by DONATIONS.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I have been shown--beyond a shadow of a doubt-that this is a "God Thing!" How else would an organization distribute over 100,000 bandanas without any $$$$ except those received through donations???

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Dedicated to the cause.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Get a bandana into the hand of every deployed man and woman in each branch of the military.

We had that 10 million bucks mentioned on the left hand side of this page!!! (:

My husband and I lived in Fayetteville, NC for several years and knew Mary Gray personally and consider her a good friend. This project is amazing. We have donated funds and also worked folding and getting the bandanas ready for shipping. Our Air Force son has one and it is comforting to know that the bandana goes with him on his many tours of duty. God's Word is powerful, and it is a privilege to get these into the hands of our military.

Operation Bandanas is the best mission project to involve all ages of our church. Our church is partnering with Mary Gray and we all enjoy folding, packaging and getting Psalm 91 Bandanas ready for mailing. In less than six months our small church has purchased and mailed nearly 1000 of these bandanas to our military men and women in Afghanistan. They are distributed by Chaplains and the most recent was sent to a chapel being built there. It is most rewarding to get an email from an airman and then one from his wife telling us that "he will keep the bandana with him wherever he goes" and what a difference one church can make in the lives of those who are in harms way to protect our freedoms. Psalm 91 Bandana is a small but powerful way to show our love and pray for each receipient. Operation Bandanas is a mission project that everyone can participate in and many thanks to Mary Gray who began this ministry in 2006.

Operation Bandanas is an amazing ministry to our troops. I had the opportunity to interview Mary Gray on my blog talk radio show. She shared the many testimonies of the service men and women who had received the bandanas with Scripture on it. I was so blessed to hear stories of men and women who wore the bandanas while they were in combat, or they put it in one of their pockets, or tied them around their arms. They told of being comforted by the Scripture verses and knowing they were loved and in people's prayers. I pray the Lord continues to bless and grow this ministry.

finances and volunteers to send more bandanas.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I hope this ministry flourishes.

My wife and I go to our church twice a month to fold and pack bandannas, that are going to various chaplains of units that are due to deploy. These bandannas are created for the use of all branches of the military. The unit of our church is made up of many different volunteers and we receive no compensation and or charge no compensation. The bandannas are paid for by donations from not only our church members but members of the community as well. Eddie hollingsworth

They were willing to send us a box of Psalm 91 bandanas while we're in E. Afghanistan. I distributed them to our Warriors in 7 different locations. The bandanas encouraged them and gave them the faith needed to finish the mission well.

Operation Bandanas is a very meaningful ministry showing love, support, prayers, appreciation to our Military who are deployed in harm's way by providing each soldier with a Psalm 91 bandana as they deploy. Our troops are finding their bandanas to be very useful tools in the sands of the deserts, as sweat bands in the heat, as tourniquets in emergencies, as a gift of love and support from loved ones in the states, and a reminder of God's presence wherever they find themselves. I can't think of a better way to show our love and support for our troops, as well as, place the Word of God for strength and power for our troops while serving. Support our troops!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

testamonies from our chaplins and troops. Someone once said, "If you see God at work, join Him", and I feel this ministry is God at work, and I wanted to be a part of that work.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

continue on the same path that this team is doing today. A job well done!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

supporting our troops with love, prayers, and bandanas. Then hearing the wonderful terstamonies of what these bandanas mean to our troops.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

are a team of Christian workers that give 100% of love and prayers to this ministry for our troops and our Lord.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

make sure that every soldier, support staff, and native of Iraq and Afghanistan could have a Psalm 91 bandana. Even family members could carry a bandana.

Ways to make it better...

I had the means to give more and if I had more ways of getting the information to the people of the USA.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

more people learning of the ministry and donating to the cause.

One thing I'd also say is that...

our God works in mysterious ways and His Word never goes out void. All things are possible with God, He is in control, and I believe, He is guiding Operation Bandanas.

I contacted Mary when my son found out he was going to be deployed to Iraq on Christmas Eve '07 and asked for a Psalm 91 bandana for his to carry with him. She quickly sent me one to pack and send with him on his way. While in Baghdad, Iraq, he and another soldier switched post and during the night, the other soldier was shot and killed. My son had this bandana in his pocket and I feel sure that helped him to be safe. She runs an awesome organization and I recommend this to all soldiers or families of soldiers who are being deployed. She is an amazing lady!!

Thanks to Operation Bandanas, the wives of 25 deploying Chaplains from Ft. Carson, CO received a Psalm 91 BDU handkerchief. Each of their Chaplain husbands also received a bandana. Mary Gray graciously donated these to our group when I was planning a "Deployment 101 -A Spiritual Perspective Workshop". The handkerchiefs are being used as a type of prayer cloth for these couples.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the lives of Chaplain Spouses and how it has made deployment more manageable.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The graciousness of Mary Gray and her motivation/calling to serve Chaplains and their spouses.
