Operation Bandana has been such a blessing to so many, to numerous to count. I pray that you will continue this great gift of love for many years to come. What a wonderful way to let those who serve us with such great sacrifice know that we appreciate what they do.

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.

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.

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!!

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!
