OSC was there for our family when we needed it the most. We were in need of financial assistance for our car repair and OSC stepped in to help us out. Caring for my wounded warrior and our family is my job these days, and it's nice to know that OSC cares for my family too. Thanks again.

Operation Second Chance is an amazing organization. I am going through a rough time in my life financially. I need some help and Operation Second Chance was there to help me out. They were very helpful and very nice every time I called to ask questions. They were able to help me out in a matter of days due to my circumstances. I am very blessed to have them help me out in a time of need. Thank you Operation Second chance for the help.

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.

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.
