Welcome to Operation Care For Troops
“Operation Care For Troops” began as Moore*Mart, a family effort to provide needed but unavailable supplies to the co-founder’s brother serving in Afghanistan. Soon, their brother’s fellow soldiers were requesting items and the grass root effort of the co-founder’s family, friends and local community volunteers where sending care packages to fulfill these requests. Soon, the word spread and care packages were being sent all over the world to our deployed service men and women in harms way. Fourteen years later “Operation Care For Troops” continues to supply depoyed soldiers worldwide with a little bit of home making their job and deployment a little easier.
Today, “Operation Care For Troops” has evolved and expanded its mission to include the local children in Iraq, Afghanistan, and troubled spots through the world. We send new school supplies, toys and outerwear to villages that never had a school or where the schools have been destroyed. Now, thanks to our servicemen and women and the Coalition Forces the local children enjoy the long awaited privilege of participating in the educational process.
Purple Hearts & Wounded Spirits
Great book! Take a look as it is a good read. Available at Amazon.com
In the wake of the September 11th terrorist attacks on the United States, Christian educator Brian Moore found himself unable to quiet the horror and rage in his heart. When his unit of the Army National Guard deployed to Iraq about a year later he gladly took up his gun, prepared to seek justice for his country. Yet from his first step into a battle-zone in the Middle East it became clear that his expectations of Iraq, its people, and war in general would be challenged. From occupying one of Saddam Hussein’s former palaces along the Tigris River to trekking through the Himalayan Mountains during a tour in Afghanistan, Moore details his war-time experiences with honesty, directness, and grit. His physical and spiritual strife while abroad changed his relationship with God and his fellow men, while reminding him what it means to be a witness for Christ – even to one’s enemies.
Brian’s journey is inspiring and challenging – an exploration of overcoming the spiritual issues of war.
