Operation Phantom Support is a truly amazing organization run by the most caring individuals my family and I have ever met. My husband, a retired Veteran of 20+yrs & I have had the good fortune of being able to be apart of OPS, as a Patron and as a Volunteer. They have helped our family in so many ways there is absolutely no way we can ever repay the kindness, support and love shown except to give back and be thankful for all this organization represents. Being a Volunteer along side the OPS family has been an honor for me. I enjoy and absolutely love everyone I work along side with and the Patrons/Veterans I have met along the way in doing so are wonderful! Blessed to be apart of the OPS Family. Thank you for all you do to support Veterans and their families, like my own and so many others. God bless you and yours.

Operation phantom support works tirelessly to provide support to the community - they sponsor school supply drives, holiday meals and support a food bank at their facility. Our community is a far better place with them in it.

I have never felt so cared for. From weekly food, to local support and even holidays and back to school. The love they share to every person that walks through their doors and even the surrounding community is contagious.

This is an amazing nonprofit that supports the military and first responders. They have so many programs from the food bank, school supplies, and Christmas toy drive. We go to the pantry every week. It helps us stay with in budget and out of debt.

Operation Phantom Support is a fantastic nonprofit that does such much for the community. Operation Phantom Support welcomes military, first responders, and their families with open arms. I have seen first hand the impact Operation Phantom Support has had on the families during my time volunteering. The most used service is the Nancy Miller Food Pantry, which is the best food pantry I have ever seen. Families can get fruits, vegetables, meat, and more twice a week. They have a birthday cake program and a program for special needs young adults. Overall, it has been a rewarding experience volunteering at Operation Phantom Support and a pleasure to volunteer with people who care about helping others.

We are always greatful for another nonprofit that bands together for support. In our community, we have many active duty, retired and spouses that get diagnosed with cancer. Working as a team makes a greater impact.

Amazing non profit that help's my Family on a regular basis and Military Families in need every week with their food pantry. I love this organization. I lost my Father unexpectedly and they funded a rental car for 2 weeks while I was in England making funeral arrangements. Without there help I don't know what I would have done.

This organization is amazing! It helps us greatly with our grocery bill! Two things they could do differently is check their food better and a few of their volunteers need to be a little nicer.

Operation Phantom Support has helped our family keep our heads above water consistently while we have been at FT Hood. The heart they have to support and honor military an veteran families is unparalleled. From the food pantry assistance to the thrift shop, they have become a much needed lifeline for us. The service they provide is so important that we continue to donate to them even when we do not need their assistance. We love the Valentine family and all they do to make Killeen a better community for our military families.

I'm going to Operation Phantoms Support now near 3 years and i have to say, the whole OPS Family (includes the volunteers) are a blessing, the whole organisation is a blessing to our Family. We would have a rough start being civilians after being in the Army for so long (my Husband finished his years in the National Guard now) and He finally is now full retired. Thank you OPS for all what you do and have done, we wish you the best for the future.

It is amazing to see all the good this charity does for military folks past and present. There is the 8 x a month food pantry for members, Christmas toy giveaway, and thrift store among other programs they have. We are members because of my husband's retired military status and volunteers because helping OPS helps us give back to our military community. I truly feel that the people in this organization care about people, care about us, and that's what it's all about.
