About Operation Interdependence®
Operation Interdependence® is the premier civilian-to-military delivery system® that provides a means for Americans to demonstrate their support of our deployed military forces by supplying them with the everyday items they miss. It is the only such care package delivery system that is secured and logistically sound. Most people are not aware that sending packages and messages to military troops can cause logistics and security problems for the military, detract from the mission and possibly bog down in the system and never reach the troops. Operation Interdependence® works with the military supply system to expedite care packages to America's deployed men and women. The organization is seeking corporate sponsors, individuals and groups to supply items such as videos, games, magazines, grooming aids, and sports clippings as well as letters and messages from home. Operation Interdependence® serves as a clearinghouse for other organizations where volunteers inspect, pack and ship the civilian rations® that let America's deployed men and women know they have support from home.
