Our sick, injured, and ill troops often arrive for medical care direct from the battlefield and without their belongings. It can take
weeks before those belongings catch up with them - sometimes they don't arrive at all. Our efforts are designed to provide
quality of life items at their first stop for medical care. In this way, we demonstrate we've had them in heart and mind all along.
We wish they didn't need them at all, but when warriors meet on a battlefield the reality is there will be casualties. It's just a
fact and at OQC we are working with that reality. We can all take comfort in knowing helpful supplies are there "just in case".
The focused efforts of a grateful nation also enhance the level of care our amazing medical professionals are able to provide
in-theater. The finest medical care in the world is provided under the most extreme conditions! We honor and comfort these
troops, too, for their heroic live-saving efforts on the front lines.
While we work tirelessly on behalf of this newest generation of warriors we hope that in doing so we show our cherished
veterans of the past that we got it right this time.
Please support our work - meaningful demonstrations of love and support - while Americans are
fighting determined enemies. We thank you in advance for your thoughtful consideration!
