About Us


Founded in 2003, Operation Support Our Troops-America is a grassroots effort that has become one of the largest volunteer based military support organizations in the country. Over 500 volunteers give well over 10,000 hours each year in service.  As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, we endeavor to provide comfort and care at home and away to our active duty military, families and veterans.  Members of the military community from all across the United States have been served by the programs of Operation Support our Troops America.


Our mission is to support the morale and well being 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 veterans and families of fallen through our programs that offer hope and healing as well as facilitate awareness in the community as to their needs.


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

This is one of the most fulfilling organizations I have ever volunteered for. We are all connected to the Military in some way. Whether you are the veteran, have a family member or friend who was in or is currently in, or simply grateful that someone out there is willing to make the ultimate  sacrifice for your freedom.” -Reviewer
