As an army wife, During my husbands first deployment, I had the honor to volunteer and help make and send care packages. So much work, thought, and dedication goes into what some people think is just a box but Is really a morale booster. What most people take for granted OTA knows that the soldiers need those items. My husband received care packages while he was over in Afghanistan and they really helped him. From necessities to things that can help pass time. Both him and I were very appreciative to have been blessed with OTA. What the people at OTA do is amazing and I am so happy I was able to help with the cause.

Operation Troop Appreciation is a an organization whose goal is to make the lives of America's service men and women a bit more bearable while deployed. They organize events in the local Pittsburgh area which meet two objectives, to make sure the community keeps service members in the fronts of their minds and to raise money to provide goods for the troops. These successful and fun events, along with the strong business alliances they have made, allows OTA to maximize their ability to provide for America's fighting men and women. Despite their strong ties to the Pittsburgh community, OTA provides for service members from all over the Nation. Visit their website and read the testimonials from those they have helped. OTA is bright and shinning example of the American spirit. They are to be honored.

When it comes to supporting our Troops whom but their lives on the line each and every day,,,well this is where OTA comes in. This organization has done wonderful things for our Military,whom are far away from home. They send them care packages and our Military really appreciates your dedication to them. Keep up the good work because you guys make a BIG difference to our Troops! Putting numerous smiles on their faces and knowing that they have tons of people back home that care and pray for their save return. The good Lord blessed me 2 times in the past 3 years getting my Son back safe after 2 separate 12 month tours. Keep up the good work OTA~!

I have had the great opportunity to work with Operation Troop Appreciation for the last 3 years. Kristen and Monica are wonderfully nice people. I commend them both on their dedication to this program. For two of the three years, I would take collections from my church and/or my mother's AARP to the Armory. My kids would accompany me. For them (and me) the experience was wonderful. There were military personnel who would explain the different vehicles and what their functions are. Kristen and Monica and other volunteers would help unload the items and explain where it would be sent. On two occasions I requsted a speaker come to an assembly to speak and both times OTA came through. Those involved with OTA are very dedicated not only to the program, but the military it supports and the United States of America. They are truly blessed.

I have participated in several OTA events because as a parent of a soldier I understand first hand the importance and value of what OTA does for our service men and women. I know how much our son valued the support that OTA provided his fellow soldiers. The unselfish men and women of this organization care deeply about those that put themselves in harms way for all of us. They have earned the support of us all.

I became aware of OTA though friends who put a great effort in collecting items and gifts for our troops through a yearly grand picinic given at their home. Many people attend bringing items and gifts for our troops,also cash donations to support OTA's efforts. Besides everyone having a good time, and getting the opportunity to help our troops; this picinic keeps us all aware of the great sacrifice our troops endure, and reminds us how important it is that we support them, and give them our encouragement throughout the year.

OTA is an amazing organization that has done so much to support the troops overseas. I am truly inspired by their great work and the amount of soldiers they have assisted over the years. We need groups like this one who is non-political and 100% behind the men and women who are serving this great county of ours. They supplies and wish list items really make a difference to those brave people.

Thanks OTA forall that you do!
