Operation Bandana provides spiritual encouragement to our soldiers in the field. These young soldiers are making great sacrifices for the cause of freedom and are reminded each time they use this mutlti-useful item that God is there to uphold them. The children and adults of our church had the opportunity to color and write encouraging words on cards to be included with the bandana making the soldiers feel that those at home are supporting them. This small gift carries an
impacting message to members of all our armed forces.

The Great!

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

My son in law was given a bandana which he carried throughout his tour, where he accepted Christ as his savior.

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

I would make them available to those in Foreign Services as well.

Operation Bandanas is an amazing organization for our military. I feel the bandanas give our military a form of comfort knowing our Lord is watching over them and protecting them. My son, Joshua, is a Marine who deployed in 2009. Before deploying I made a copy of Psalm 91 for him to put in his wallet, little did I know what would happen next. He was deployed from March-Sept, he had a son born during his deployment. He and his family came home for Christmas that year and he presented me with his Psalm 91 bandana. He told me it had his sweat and dirt from Iraq in it, he did not wash it because he knew I would want it just like it was. I had it framed and it now hangs in my living room. I am very proud of our military and pray the Lords umbrella of protection over them. I know there are men and women who have come to know the Lord through the bandanas and Praise God for every soul saved!!!! I am honored to be a part of Operation Bandanas through my donations.

Mary Gray is doing an amazing job. She goes above and beyond. I wish I could donate more money and put more bandanas in our military's hands.

We are thankful we came across Operation Bandana on line last Fall. We have a son heading to Afghanistan in 4 weeks so we purchased enough bandanas for his platoon. We believe the greatest gift we can give to those who serve in harms way is the Word of God. Operation Bandana has made this easy to do by having Psalm 91 written on the bandanas as a daily reminder to our soldiers that God loves them and that he is hiding them under His wing. Operation Bandana also makes it easy for those in the community to show appreciation to those who serve our county. Donations are necessary to cover the cost and shipping of the bandanas and giving, on-line through pay pal, makes it easy to say thanks. A special thanks to Mary Gray for helping the West Point Prayer and Share group in Dallas be able to make a difference in the lives of our own sons and daughters and those they lead.

Operation Bandanas, begun in Fayetteville NC is truly a great non-profit organization dedicated to providing ministry and encouragement to soldiers in our armed forces. A simple Psalm 91 bandana has uplifted many and serves as continual encouragement to many. Mary Gray is a tireless person, led by God's spirit to be a blessing to soldiers and all members of our armed forces. This gruop does wonderful work!!

The Great!

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

the lives of soldiers per their stories, and in the lives of the members that work in the non-profit. I have seen donors go beyond their first impulse when they see the work.

Ways to make it better...

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

continue the path this relatively new organization has charted, and seek to build it even faster.

More feedback...

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

the great people one gets to work with.

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

wonderful people who see the huge sacrifice our military makes and would like to do something in return that is more personal, meaningful, and long lasting.

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

equip all military personnel with a bandana, and move on to other ministries. This is a God led team.

Ways to make it better...

I could have stayed in NC and continued to work with this group.

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

This organizaton desires to place a Bandana in the hands and hearts of every deployed military person. The vision is to equip another 150,000 soldiers with a Psalm 91 Bandana. A few larger donors are needed.

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

Mary Gray will be the receipient of many blessings, God's good and faithful servant.

Operation Bandanas is an EXCEPTIONAL non-profit organization. Not only are they finding a way to support our troops, but they are doing it with a wonderful spiritual message that our men & women in harms way need to hear. These bandanas provide our heroes with much more than just a piece of fabric. They give them spiritual food, a shield of protection, a cloth to wipe their brow, and much more. These bandanas have touched so many lives & I know they will do amazing things for so many more!

The Great!

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

Ways to make it better...

they could get SO much money & not have to worry about it again!

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

getting the word out to raise as much money as possible.

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

it is my honor to have been associated with this wonderful non-profit. I would encourage everyone to give whatever they can - time, money, prayers, etc
