Since 2003, Operation Gratitude has sent over 2.2 million care packages to deployed Service Members who have selflessly chosen to serve our country.
Operation Gratitude understands that no one understands that sacrifice more than the Military Families who are at home while their servicemembers are away fighting for our freedom.
Military Families serve our nation in their own special way and the Operation Gratitude Military Families Program is dedicated to support and recognize them.
REQUEST battalion buddies
Our signature Battalion Buddy Bears are just one way our Military Families Program supports the children of our service members.
Each Battalion Buddy skin is hand stuffed with love and care by one of Operation Gratitude’s many volunteers. They are then dressed in “camo”-style jackets and caps and quality checked to ensure these bears are ready to meet their new brave owners.
