SUPPORTING CONVICTION. SUPPLYING COMPASSION.

OSOT America provides more than supplies; we support America’s sons and daughters in the field, care for their families and rally around our veterans. Together, we can significantly add to each soldier’s ability to come home and fully re-integrate into civilian life.

DEPLOYED SOLDIERS/SAILORS/MARINES/AIRMEN

We send comfort packages to individual deployed military members in harm’s way and special requests to units and hospitals in the field.

FAMILY MEMBERS
