Happy Birthday US Navy!

Happy 239th Birthday, Navy!

Last year, we were at Walter Reed Military Medical Center when they were having a small Navy birthday celebration. It was pretty cool to witness… and the cake was yummy too! They were nice enough to share some of their birthday cake with us, while we handed out Tastykakes, gift cards and t-shirts! Thank you, Navy for sharing that with us last year. We hope you have a great birthday celebration this year!


Suicide Prevention Month

September is Suicide Prevention Month. I just wanted to share this video of a Sailor’s suicide survival story.

Learn more about suicide and it’s signs at the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. You can also get help at the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline website as well.

If you are struggling, please know that you are not alone. There are plenty of people who love you and care about you. There are people who will understand and who are willing to help. Please don’t be afraid to seek help if you need it. If you need help, feel free to call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline ANYTIME at 1-800-273-8255. They are there 24/7.



I know it’s been a little while, but I have an update for you.

Due to unforeseen circumstances some of our team members are dealing with, we will, unfortunately, not be making a delivery to Walter Reed this year. Our team members are a vital part of our mission and we just don’t feel right doing it without them. However, that doesn’t mean we will be sitting out completely this year. Stay tuned for more info on how you can help our wounded warriors and their families.

Thank you for your continued support.

Wow! It’s been a while! It’s been a crazy summer and I can’t believe it’s starting to come to an end. But… you know what that means! It’s time to start planning The Marshall Plan drive and delivery round 4! 

We are gearing up and starting to make our plans. We will let you know when the date is set in stone, and of course, we’ll fill you in on all the details of how you can help!

We hope you’ve had a fantastic summer! We’ll talk soon!


Today and every day, we say “Thank you”

Today is the day we remember the price that was paid for our freedom.

Some of the brave men who took part in the Battle of Normandy are still with us. We can never say “Thank you” enough.


Over the years Operation Gratitudehas been privileged to send care packages tothousands of veterans, including those from the Greatest Generation making a trip with the Honor Flight Network to see the National World War II Memorial and other monuments in Washington, D.C. 

Last week we received an email message from one of Honor Flight JS2the recipients (pictured here meeting Senator Bob Dole):

“Operation Gratitude: I appreciate the Gratitude Box. The GOODIES were well received. You provided so much that I shared some with our Veterans Home here in KY. Your publication indicates that you are interested and dedicated to helping all Veterans. Looks like you are a fun group. God Bless you all. J.S…
