Operation Bandanas for Bragg, dba Operation Bandanas
March 27, 2010

I gave a psalm 91 bandana to a friend who was deploying to a dangerous area in Irag. At a family dinner given for him upon his return home a year later, he pulled out the bandana from his pocket. He passed it around the table and asked everyone to look at it. When it returned to him, with a crack in his voice, he told his family members the significance of the bandana. He said that he had it with him 24/7 (except the shower!) the entire time he was deployed. Obviously this simple piece of material with God's word printed on it gave him a great sense of peace and safety each time he was in harm's way. With tears in her eyes, his mother related this story to me. The deployed chaplains say that the minute their boxes of bandanas are opened, they vanish in a minute. This group is doing a wonderful thing for our military men and women. Every bandana which is sent out, is paid for by DONATIONS.

The Great!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I have been shown--beyond a shadow of a doubt-that this is a "God Thing!" How else would an organization distribute over 100,000 bandanas without any $$$$ except those received through donations???

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Dedicated to the cause.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Get a bandana into the hand of every deployed man and woman in each branch of the military.
