Regardless of which ever leader it is at the head of the country, I think it is essential that we show our support, admiration and thanks for all those that have or still do wear a uniform and serve. It takes incredible dedication and sacrifice. Below is how we can help say thank you and support all those who have served:

1. $25 GIFT CARDS ARE THE MOST NEEDED ITEM. This is how they get on the satellite for personal communications to home. $25 gift cards like Visa, Mastercard and American Express. Not store cards.
2. SEND BOXES WITH ALL THE SAME TYPE OF GOODS. Not assorted goods. Do not think in terms of preparing an individual box of assorted goods for individual soldiers. The military ends up re-sorting those at their end. It is waste effort at both ends. The present manner of distribution in the war zones and areas of conflict has care goods maintained in blocks of the same types of goods, so that soldiers can get exactly how much of what they want, and nothing goes to waste.
Two Ways to Help
You can buy and ship items to us (we inspect, repackage and distribute them to the troops), or,
you can donate via our donation page to help us distribute the goods to the troops. Your donation and support helps America’s troops do their jobs effectively.
WELCOME to Operation Healing Angel for our Wounded Warriors and Medical Heroes
Operation Healing Angel is our mission serving our wounded heroes, and their brave medical staff in the war zone as well as hospitals where our wounded are treated worldwide and stateside.
- And if you have kids, teach kids, mentor kids, babysit kids, then sit down with them and have them learn what a veteran is and then what sacrifice means and then….who a wounded vet is and how they really could use a smile. And imagine how this will change and help your children remembering what sacrifices are about…and how giving back to others makes them feel good about life.
It does not take much to show your support to a wounded veterans and sometimes those wounds are not so visible.
- Where do you send a card to a wounded warrior? ( it only takes one stamp and a sheet of paper)

We are an all volunteer organization and not tax-deductible. Yet no one earns a penny here. 100% of all you donate goes to our wounded hero needs and postage for their care packages to ship. You can help us make sure no hero is forgotten.
If you prefer to donate to a charity that is tax-deductible, we recommend TAPS, UNICEF and Fisher House. But if you don’t mind and realize 100% goes to our wounded needs, you can use this button below to make a ONE time donation. Thank you again from all of us who work tirelessly but gratefully for Operation Healing Angel…and all our troops.
Make the Connection
Make the connection is a public awareness campaign by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) that connects Veterans and their friends and families with information, resources, and solutions to issues affecting their health, well-being, and everyday lives. The campaign encourages Veterans and their families to "make the connection" — with information and resources, with the strength and resilience of Veterans like themselves, and with available resources of support. The success of
Make the Connection
depends on support from everyone who interacts with Veterans: community members around the country, Veteran Service Organizations, community-based groups, and health care providers who have direct contact with Veterans every day.
