Community Remembers Troops 2

It began with a Toy:
Over eleven years ago, while stationed in Iraq, I, Chief Wiggles, gave my first toy to a small crying child at the gate of the Green Zone.
Cheif Wiggle and First Toy

That was the humble beginnings of Operation Give and as they say the rest is history. We have since that day shipped over 140 forty-foot ocean container loads of toys and other items to children in over 17 different countries. We have continued to focus on giving items to US Soldiers in war-torn countries, who in turn have done exactly as I did that one day, spread love and understanding through the giving of toys to children (and of course shoes, balls, dolls, schools supplies, clothes and other supplies).

Operation Give recently received a video from Brettany L Bailey, who, with her students at the Three Chopt Elementary School, expressed their support for our troops through words, songs / video and pictures.

Support the Troops Video and Song Writing Contest.
Join in by writing a song and making a video for the troops in Afghanistan. Use the Song and Video with photos of the Project that you selected to do, such as Toys, Soccer Balls, Care Packages, etc.  Gather them up and send them free of charge to Operation Give, so we in turn can send them to our soldiers, airmen, seamen and marines serving our country in Afghanistan.

They want to make sure the troops know they have not been forgotten.

Children Supporting TroopsMore importantly they were sending toys to Operation Give for the troops in Afghanistan, so our men and women serving our country will have things to give the children they come in contact with.
Through these toys our troops will be able to build bridges of love and compassion; spanning cultural differences and language barriers.

Below are the words to the song played on the You Are Not Forgotten Video

You are not forgotten
so hold your head up high
We all think the world of your
Love and sacrifice
teaching us commitment
honor and faithfulness
wishing you’d come back real soon

I wonder what it’d be like
to miss my family
to have to leave and say goodbye
to help my brothers in need
to miss out on birthdays
family fun and holidays
unsure where the call may lead

From all across the country
to Mrs. Baileys 4th grade class
we are lifting up our hearts
to show our gratitude
for all your dedication
and keeping us safe
while protecting the USA

You are not forgotten
so hold your head up high
We all think the world of your
Love and sacrifice
teaching us commitment
wishing you’d come back real soon
