Founded in 2003, Operation Gratitude (OG) seeks to lift morale and put smiles on faces by sending care packages addressed to individual soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines deployed in harm’s way, to their children left behind, and to Wounded Warriors recuperating in Transition Units. OG care packages contain food, hygiene products, entertainment items and personal letters of appreciation. Through Collection Drives, Letter Writing Campaigns and Donations of funds for shipping expenses, OG provides civilians anywhere in America with a way to express their respect and appreciation to the men and women of the U.S. Military in an active, hands-on manner.
The Wounded Warrior Care Package Program assembles volunteers to send care packages to wounded warriors annually in all Military branches.
