    Dear Friends and Supporters,

    It has been one of the greatest honors of my life to serve as Operation Support Our Troops-

    America’s Executive Director since May 2018. When Deb and I began mailing care packages in

    2003, we never dreamed that our small effort would become a full-blown military service

    organization and would still be thriving all these years later. Nor did we realize how the needs

    of our military community would continue to grow and change over the years. With the help of

    our great volunteers, sponsors and supporters, we have been able to consistently grow and

    adapt to meet these changing needs.

    Our military continues to serve and protect our freedom and way of life with over 170,000

    service members deployed to over 150 countries around the world. While the media focuses

    on the latest political skirmish of the day, we cannot allow ourselves to forget not only those

    that are deployed but those who continue to struggle with the wounds of war, both seen and

    unseen. Operation Support Our Troops-America has not and will not waiver from the fulfillment

    of our mission, to provide comfort and care for our military community both at home and away.

    We do this through the implementation of our four main programs.

    As I step down as the Executive Director and look ahead to our new Executive Director, Scott

    Maxson, to lead this great organization I am humbled by the commitment of all of you and the

    support given to our military, their families, our veterans and families of the fallen.

    Our work is not done, and I hope we can continue to count on you to be a part of our

    mission. On behalf of all of those we are honored to serve, I thank you.

    Bill Rickert
