Operation Bandanas for Bragg, dba Operation Bandanas
November 4, 2011
I have appreciated the mission of Operation Bandanas! Soldiers and Family members feel cared for with such a program and to think it all started with one Army Spouse who is also an Army Mom!! Mary Gray, the Founder of Operation Bandanas, has created a gift that is one avenue of support for our Military that addresses their spiritual resilience. Her website has testimonials on it but I am confident that the bandanas make a difference for many more than who can write in. We are reassured that although we may not know each individual story, that her bandanas provide a comfort both spiritually and physically (keeping the military member cooler or drier during the extreme heat of the Afghanistan and Iraqi summers)! Mary also works tirelessly to spread the word of her bandanas by attending events where she can share her project with military units so they learn about it and how to request some.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
events where Mary is taking advantage of telling others about the program so they can continue to provide this support to constantly deploying units.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
General Member of the Public & I support Operation Bandanas by sharing about the program with others.
