Girl Scout Troop 1369 volunteers at events to help Operation Second Chance help military families. Recently, we hosted a military card making table at Second Chance Auto Show in Germantown. We host military card making tables at local events and our school. With the help of OSC these cards and our donated cookies will find soldiers and vets in need of well wishes and love.

The troop leader's husband earned 2 Purple Hearts, 1 Silver Star and 2 Bronze Stars. OSC along with the Rehoboth Beach Community put together an amazing no cost 5 day vacation for the family. The family had no clue that they'd be treated like royalty and have everything at their finger tips such as help and understanding with the needs of the MS stricken veteran and the passing of the wife's mother only two days prior to the trip. Most vacations are stressful with prepping and praying that everything goes as planned. Knowing that there were people in the Rehoboth Community ready to assist with the family bumps took boulders off of their shoulders.

We appreciate and welcome OSC moving into our Germantown community!!

Operation second chance is the best truest to it's name of any organization.They help injured soldiers as soon as they are injured and go to walter reed. They keep families fly out and visit the injured soldier to building a house for them. They take them out to games and fishing And hunting. They truly help hundreds of soldiers that have been injured with no legs or blind in one eye as a sniper. The president Cindy mcgrew was going for ten years every day to walter reed. They deserve to win the best organization.

Operation Second Chance is a wonderful organization and resource for our beloved men and women of uniform who have sacrificed so much. Many nonprofits in my opinion waste so much time and precious resources and fail not to touch the core need, this organization understands that need and delivers. I can clearly testify from many angles of observation of OSC events that a smile from a hero is badge of honor for the organization. God-speed Operation Second Chance!

The story of Operation Second Chance is one of selfless service. Its founder gave up a lucrative job in the financial industry. Now, a large network of volunteers from Florida to Montana work together to provide great outings for our Wounded Warriors. Our overhead costs are low so that just over 90 cents of every dollar donated actually goes to help our Wounded Warriors. I have worked with this organization for about five years and help to conduct fishing expeditions here in the Highland Lakes of central Texas as well as hiking and camping in the Big Bend National Park. Operation Second Chance has blessed the lives of many Warriors - one at a time with care, respect and a chance to get out of the hospital environment and relax and enjoy the great outdoors.

A group of corporations had the privilege of assisting Operation Second Chance by organizing a Sporting Clays Shoot in the Tampa/Bradenton/Sarasota area to raise funds for OSC. Our group - Operation Second Chance Florida Fun Shoot - worked with several OSC volunteers who were not only excited about what they were doing to help our veterans, but spent a great deal of time and effort helping us help them. Our 1st annual shoot was a great success in large part due to the OSC volunteers that just did what they do - help in any way they can. The OSC's office in Washington helped by putting the word out and again just doing what they do, which is give back to our veterans by keeping their overhead so low that they are able to return 90% of the funds raised directly to assist veterans. I can't say enough about how good the OSC folks are to our vets - and that isn't just my opinion; I heard that directly from the vets that attended the shoot and participated with our sponsors. Top notch organization.

I began volunteering for Operation Second Chance (OSC) in 2010. Since then I have always been impressed with the organization's ability to provide too-notch, personal care for our wounded veterans and their families. OSC operates on minimal overhead and provides over 90% of its donated funds directly to veteran support.
