I have participated in several OTA events because as a parent of a soldier I understand first hand the importance and value of what OTA does for our service men and women. I know how much our son valued the support that OTA provided his fellow soldiers. The unselfish men and women of this organization care deeply about those that put themselves in harms way for all of us. They have earned the support of us all.

I became aware of OTA though friends who put a great effort in collecting items and gifts for our troops through a yearly grand picinic given at their home. Many people attend bringing items and gifts for our troops,also cash donations to support OTA's efforts. Besides everyone having a good time, and getting the opportunity to help our troops; this picinic keeps us all aware of the great sacrifice our troops endure, and reminds us how important it is that we support them, and give them our encouragement throughout the year.

OTA is an amazing organization that has done so much to support the troops overseas. I am truly inspired by their great work and the amount of soldiers they have assisted over the years. We need groups like this one who is non-political and 100% behind the men and women who are serving this great county of ours. They supplies and wish list items really make a difference to those brave people.

Thanks OTA forall that you do!
