My husband and I have had the opportunity to work with the devoted OTA in collecting signatures for Holiday cards and packing for individual "Wish Lists" for the troops. OTA works continuouly to provide for the troops, not just once a year at the Holidays. OTA is continually looking at various ways to raise funds to provide for the troops that sacrifice so much to keep us free. An honor to work with OTA!

The company that I work for discovered OTA as a great way for us to be able to support our troops overseas. They locate a troop for us that needs items from home, and we gather those items and send them overseas. OTA provides guidance on most requested items, what we can and cannot ship, thank you notes from the troops and pictures of the troops receiving our packages. It is a win-win situation for both the troops and the associates at my office. OTA provides us with a way to show our appreciation for those who are defending our freedom and putting their lives on the line every day. OTA truly makes this a heartwarming experience for us and the troops.

seeing the happiness on the faces of the troops when they open our packages. OTA encourages the troops to send pictures to us. It is an overwhelming feeling to see the looks on their faces when they receive some of the basic hygiene items or snacks.

I have volunteered with OTA for a few years now. It is a wonderful feeling knowing you are sending a little piece of home to the Soldiers who so bravely give so much for all of us back home. Not only does OTA send personal items, OTA also sends cards to the soldiers. Collecting the signatures, wishes and blessings from so many people here at home to send to the Soldiers Marines and Saliors to hopefully brighten their day. Reading the letters of thankfulness from all the service men and women and happiness that OTA has been able to share. The hard work and dedication that Kristen and Monica have to this organization is because of their dedication to the troops serving so far away,,, This is truly a special Organization to be a part of.

My family and I have been long time volunteers for OTA. It is not only rewarding for the troops but for ourselves too. OTA is a wonderful organization to be a part of. OTA fulfills wishes to our deployed troops. Just reading the thank you letters and seeing the pictures of all the grateful soldiers warms your heart. Since volunteeing with OTA I have made new friends who have joined our packing parties or donation drives. It is truly a non profit organization because not one person gets paid. We are all there for the same reason to provide moral support and bring a little of home to all those overseas.

I have volunteered with OTA on many occasions, and I cannot think of more dedicated individuals. It was and is an honor for me anytime that I can work with them.
It makes me both proud and humble to be a part of serving those who serve for us. Our brave men and women fighting overseas give
so much for each of us. They make it possible for us to enjoy and even take for granted the small creature comforts they we have. I think it's wonderful that OTA tries to bring some of those very same items to our deployed service members! It is but one small way for us to say "thank-you" and give to those who give it all.
All one has to do is visit their site to see the letters and photos of our troops to see what a fabulous job this organization pulls off!

I have helped as a volunteer on a few occasions and cannot be more proud to associate with this organization. Brave men and women give so much to this country, and with just a little effort we can show them how much we appreciate the sacrifices that they make. This organiation allows us the opportunity to do just that!

To watch the work and personal effort of the few that started this organization, to the many that are now involved is truly amazing. Along the way names and faces continue to be so important to the organizers. I can't believe that they know who I am! It makes me proud to support this group because it is a hands on "operatiom" and the work that they do is so important to our troops.

I have volunteered for 5 years with OTA. The board and its volunteers have worked tirelessly to raise money and grant wishes to as many troops as possible. My nephew and his troop were recipients of OTA's kind and generous donations of Under Armor, sports equipment and various other wish list items. These brave men and women need our love and support every day. As long as we have troops overseas, OTA will do all it can to ease the discomfort of as many men and women as possible.

I know first hand how much this organization does for our troops as they have sent care packages to the WV 201st FA during thier first deployment in Iraq. My husband is a member of the 201st and they are now deployed in Kuwait. Once again OTA will show their love and support with more care packages. Thank you OTA for all you do for all of our military!

I first learned of this program at one of my Rotary meetings last year. I immediately knew this was a great organization, expecially because they send over SPECIFIC items a Unit, Battalion, or other troops need. I think that is an amazing feat to undertake, and OTA has done a stellar job at doing so. Kudos to Kristen and her team! Thank you for all you do!
