Mission Operation: Quiet Comfort exists to provide physical and emotional support to America’s military men and women while they are serving in harm’s way. We also provide support to those who care for them.

We collect, package, and ship supplies to the U.S. Military men and women receiving care at medical facilities abroad. Often our injured men and women arrive for medical care without their belongings, and it can take weeks before those belongings catch up with them – and sometimes they don’t arrive at all. Our troops need items like hygiene and grooming products, clothing, entertainment, and support from the home front.

We also provide much needed emotional and moral support through care packages and cards. For many of our brave heroes, they are away from home for the first time. The care packages that we send let our brave heroes know that our nation truly cares about them and appreciates their sacrifices for our freedom.

You won’t find any political, ideological or religious views of the war or other conflicts that the United States may be involved in … just the love and comfort of a grateful nation.

Your contributions of time, talent and resources help us provide meaningful support to our wounded warriors during their time of distress far from home. And  we have it on good authority that these efforts are of great comfort to their loved ones, too.

Operation: Quiet Comfort (OQC) is a national benefit organization established in July 2004 with an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) designation effective December 5, 2005. Operation: Quiet Comfort is an all-volunteer organization managed by a board of trustees. 95 percent of funds raised are used for our programs of providing comfort items for wounded military.
