New Year Update

Two months ago the 36th Sustainment Brigade reached out to us to see if we could help assist with their Casing/Deployment Ceremony as their ceremony was originally scheduled for January 15, 2022 (deploying for 10 months to Middle East). It was going to be outside, but they were needing assistance with a possible inside venue especially with it being winter — you just never know how the weather would be. On the day of the ceremony, it was 33 degrees with 30 mile an hour winds and snow.

With the help of Operation Once In A Lifetime, as well as our supporters such as Jose Trevino (Catcher) & Texas Rangers, IICF, AUSA North Texas – Audie Murphy Chapter, Homes by J. Anthony, Bell Helicopters and the individual contributions we received, we were not only able to have their ceremony at Globe Life Field (home of the Texas Rangers) but provide dinner for all the soldiers and their families totaling 1000, including 250 care packages also provided by IICF!! 


It was truly a memorable once in a lifetime send off, especially with special guest Medal of Honor Recipient David Bellavia!   Keep these soldiers and their families in your prayers.

Also, thank you to our 15+ volunteers that came out that day as well. We can not do it without you!
