I have had the privilege of meeting OSC's founder, Cindy McGrew who exemplifies the spirit of volunteerism. She left a success career to begin this foundation after being moved by the soldiers in Walter Reed. She is not afraid to get her hands dirty and helps at every level; she is not a mere figurehead and face of this organization. Her love for these brave men and women is evident and her passion to help them is abundant.

I've had the privilege to be involved with several events with Operation Second Chance. Their helpful volunteers go to the extreme to provide support for injured prior service members. They offer an opportunity for these individuals to enjoy being able to regain the lost feeling of comradery. Meeting with the individuals being provided support has been an en-lighting experience for myself. I got to see first hand, the smiles and genuine feelings of happiness these young men were able share when we met. The brothership is a bond we all will share forever. OSC is an organizaton I will always support any way possible.

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

not change a thing.

I raised funds for OSC this year as part of Ride Allegheny, a bike ride that raises money exclusively for OSC every year. I looked into the organization to know what I was asking of my family and friends and I can say I felt so good working on behalf of Cindy and OSC. It is efficient, small, local and truly impactful. I spent time with Cindy and met some veterans with her on the ride this year and was so proud to have helped her cause. I recommend her work 100% and can't wait to help again next year with this worthy, important mission.
