... is a nationwide 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides
a means for community members to support troops serving on the frontlines, military
families and veterans. Our long term goal is to ensure that every Solider, Sailor,
Airman and Marine is served by OI® from the time they don the uniform to the day
they are honorably laid to rest.
Reaching the Frontlines
Just over 2,000,000 troops around the world have received OI® C-rats® from home including those
serving in Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt, Djibouti (Eastern Africa), Germany and Japan.
Serving Our Heroes and Their Families at Home
OI has donated more than 1,005,070 pounds (503 tons) of goods to military families and veteran organizations since its inception in 2001.
Our volunteers support veterans at the VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System and Michael E. DeBakey VA
Medical Center in Houston; injured warriors at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio; and military
family groups at U.S. Army Fort Hood near Austin, TX., and Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton near San Diego.
