Mission Statement
Operation PAL™ provides support - through prayers and letters from the general public - to Marines and Corpsmen who have been injured or become ill while serving in combat zones.
Operation PAL™ encourages support of our wounded warriors in communities throughout the United States.

We're so glad you joined us for this issue of Operation PAL™ News and we're grateful for your involvement in this important outreach program.  
If your town has a 4th of July event, think about setting up an OperationPAL table where people can sign cards of 'get well' and 'thanks for your service' to send to our wounded and ill warriors.
Create a list to bring with you, found by clicking "Printable List" in the left bar. That way you can tell folks a little about our participants. 
Marine at Roswell Remembers Memorial Day EventAt "Roswell Remembers" on Memorial Day we made up a few large cards for each participant and had them on clipboards. Those attending signed them and many added their own thoughts and wishes.
We even had a Marine who was on leave stop by. He signed many of the 36 sheets we had that day.  
There are many ways to participate in OperationPAL. Find your own special way to send cheer to those who need it.
Semper Family,

Center One Prayer Support Group 
Card Writers Spotlight
Card Writers Spotlight: Center One Prayer Support GroupThis month we'd like to highlight a very special group regularly sending cards to our wounded warriors - the Center One Unit of Parkhouse Providence Point.  The Center One Prayer Support Group is comprised of elderly and chronically ill residents of all ages whose goals are to help others find strength and comfort through faith, make a difference in the life of someone else, and to honor God. 
We are so happy that they have chosen OperationPAL as one of their projects because the support they show is heartfelt and ongoing. Robin, who is the Caseworker, meets regularly with any Resident interested in prayer support. She says the ladies love to pray for the troops and send cards, written prayers, and other uplifting materials to the wounded members of the armed forces to be of help and comfort. 
Card Writers Spotlight: Center One Prayer Support GroupThe photos submitted are of the group on a day when a soldier visited while on leave from Iraq, and of some of the lovely holiday cards and art projects they have submitted to OperationPAL for our wounded Marines.
The comments we receive from the families of our wounded are warmly appreciative that total strangers will take time to create an item to make them feel better. Center One Prayer Support Group thanks OperationPAL for allowing them to be of support to our wounded Marines. We send a big OohRah back out to the Center One Prayer Support Group for being such caring citizens. 
Thank You
