My son was in Iraq in 2006 and again in 2008 with USMC. When he deployed in '08, a friend of mine sent us a Bandana with the 91st Psalm on it....John folded it and put it between his heart and his flak jacket and wore it every day on missions. When he came home it smelled sooooo bad! (He was there Feb-Sept) I washed it, ironed it and had it framed for him for Christmas! He cried when he opened it and now has it hanging in his new home! Now, whenever I know of a soldier being deployed, I try to get a Bandana in his/her hand. It is a wonderful "witnessing" tool, I have had so many letters from soldiers thanking me. I know there have been seeds sown and God is watering, nurturing!! This is an amazing Ministry!!

The Great!

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

Whenever I order Bandanas, whether it is one or enough for a Platoon, they arrive very quickly!!

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

Mary Gray is the person I correspond with, she is very professional and prompt. Also, I have friends who meet and fold these Bandanas, package them to be sent to soldiers.

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

Put one of these Bandanas in every Military personnel!!

I wanted to write and tell you what a blessing Operation Bandanas has been to my soldiers. I have given away hundreds of these to U.S. servicemembers across Afghanistan. They become a precious, cherished gift of hope, comfort, and love. Servicemembers often put them in their helmets to absorb the perspiration of the desert heat and symbolically remind them of God's protection over them. Sometimes they simply put them in their pocket and then use them when needed. Other times, when a soldier I am counseling will begin crying, I will present them with one of these to wipe their tears away. What a blessing to be reminded of God's protection over your life every time you pull it out. The Psalm 91 bandana is a very relevant way for every servicemember to take the comforting, Holy words of the Bible with them wherever they go. Mary Gray and her staff are kind, courteous, and caring professionals. They are the best--God bless them. Chaplian Eric Bundrick, US Army Afghanistan

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.

they start making "multi-cam" bandanas, the new uniform for Afghanistan.

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

raising funds.

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