INTERNATIONAL REACH. INSPIRATIONAL RESULTS.
Founded in 2003, Operation Support Our Troops – America (formerly Operation Support Our Troops – Illinois) has been a grassroots effort that’s blossomed into one of the largest volunteer based military support organizations in the country. As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, we exist to provide comfort and care at home and away to our active duty military, families and veterans.
Our mission is to support the morale and wellbeing of American forces by providing comfort, resources and education to them and their families both while they are deployed in harm’s way and after their return. We accomplish this by providing a link between the citizens and military personnel so that everyone has the opportunity to express their support. This allows us to send comfort packages of items that are not readily available to our troops in their deployed locations, along with personal letters, cards and notes of support from the community at large.
We are also dedicated to supporting our wounded service members, families and veterans through programs, support and facilitating awareness in various communities as to the needs of our troops.
At OSOT America, all of our members are parents, professionals and retirees —average Americans banding together to support the welfare and morale of members of the armed forces and their families across the U.S. through comfort, education and resources. Simply put, we are you.
Please be assured that Operation Support Our Troops ~America strictly adheres to Department of Defense standards and guidelines with respect to mailing/sending packages to our Troops overseas:
- We do not send unsolicited packages
- Every package that is sent is at the request of a military person or their loved one
- We do not publicize in any way or pass on to any person or organization the names that are given to us.
