So happy to support an organization that supports our troops. I was proud to choose Operation Troop Appreciation to be our designated charity in lieu of flowers when my husband, a Vietnam Vet, passed away this year. In his memory, our family wanted to see our troops honored in a way that many Vietnam vets were not upon their return.
Every year for his birthday, my oldest son and I chose an organization to collect for in leiu of presents. This passed year we did Operation Troop Appreciation and it was the most precious experience for our whole family. We look forward to donating to them again this year!!
This organization goes above and beyond to provide necessities for our troops overseas! I have been donating items to OTA for over 5 years to help bring smiles to soldiers' faces. When thank you notes and pictures from the soldiers are posted on OTA's Facebook page, it lets all of us know that what is being done is a great morale booster for them. OTA is a wonderful organization!
I have been donating to OTA for several years. They are a great organization with little overhead due to all of their volunteers. They work hard to get necessary items to our troops who are grateful for the support. They make sure that we see all the thank you notes from the troops. I would highly recommend this organization!
I have been donating money and goods to ota since my son came home from the marines after doing 2 tours in Iraq. I would send him and his guys boxes and boxes of stuff every month. he said they appreciated it so much. after he came home and told me so many of the guys didn't get packages from their family and the things I sent meant a lot to these men. in 2007, when he came home, I wanted to continue to send things they needed or wanted and someone told me about ota. I do what I can and know that all the money goes to fill the wishlists of our troops.
I made my first donation to this organization just the other day and I was so impressed with the organization this group had. The volunteer was very kind and very informative. It was an honor to donate to an organization that takes care of our troops. God Bless you all !! I will be making many more donations in the near future !!!
5 Stars all the way!! It’s an honor to help support such a great organization. OTA has helped so many of our troops in far away places where they can’t or don’t get some of the essential items that we enjoy here at home. My son has been deployed 3 times for a total of 38 months and my wife and I both know what it’s like to have a loved one far away and wanting them to have what they need. OTA steps to the plate here and really comes through for our soldiers. It was a comfort to know we had someone like OTA to turn to and that cares so much for all of our soliders. Thanks OTA - we love you!!
Operation Troop Appreciation is a wonderful help to our men and women who are selflessly serving our country. They are quick to respond to their needs and help them in any way possible. I am glad that this organization is there to help these fine men and women and I am humbled to give whatever I can to help them do just that.
Review from Guidestar
From a more or less "grass roots" organization to what OTA has become today says it all! They go wherever and do whatever they have to to find what these troops are asking for and getting whatever it is to whoever has asked for it. I'm amazed more and more every time I read a letter from a grateful serviceman who got a care package from OTA or a CO for a particular unit who thanks OTA for his whole unit. I'm proud to be a small donor but most proud of the people who are working at OTA.
I have read some of the letters from the troops that are stationed in other countries and how appreciative they are to have received a package from someone they don't even know but appreciates what they are doing for their country
Review from Guidestar
OTA has been instrumental in helping our troops with moral and day to day items that they really need. We owe our soldiers so much for preserving our way of life and OTA is an outstanding vehicle to make this happen. They are selfless in their ongoing chores to make our troops safer and more comfortable. My hat is off to them.
