We reached out to Operation Troop Appreciation to request used softball equipment in order to start a team for the league on the installation. Not only did they deliver, but supplied enough brand new gloves and bats to support the entire team. Without their support we would have not been able to field a team. Many thanks from the members of "Reaper" nation.

Amanda and her crew are outstanding! She gave our unit everything we asked for, and then some! She was great to deal with, excellent communication back and forth. Will definitely look up this org again if we need support for another deployment.

Thanks again OTA - you guys are awesome!

With limited supplies and the thought of how you will be able to acquire simple materials is the normal struggle of a deployed troop. Having great organizations like OTA, who not only go out of their way to find ways to make troops life easier by providing requested items and assisting you throughout the process. Amanda being the Director reached out to me and acquired all the information she needed to make our request the best to her ability. Not only did she receive all the information she needed but maintained an open communication with me to assure everything went well through the process and we received everything. Thank you OTA for all you do and its greatly appreciated.

I reached out to Operation Troop Appreciation (OTA)for an item our unit needed but had trouble getting the funds to purchase. After receiving my request OTA quickly filled the order. Their service not only helped our unit but allowed us to better train/educate others.

I wish I could guve them 10 stars! Most support non profits only send boxes of goodies, but this organization sent items we requested. Because of there amazing support and going way above and beyond, my unit deemed me the care package master because it wasn't the normal food items. They sent a bunch of cool gear we requested. OTA ROCKS!

Absolutely incredible support to deployed military members. While every care package/letter received is great, a lot of the guys don't have families back home helping them get through this. Operation Troop Appreciation meets specific needs identified by the military member. At some camps you can get just about everything needed, at others--many everyday items are in short supply or never available. OTA goes out of their way to hunt it down and get it to us. That kind of personalized support is something you'd normally only get from family. For many, it is the little things that go a long way toward making the time away from home bearable. Thank you and please keep up the great work--your Operation is definitely Appreciated by the Troops!
