Please note: The Battalion Buddy Program will be suspended November 1, 2013 through February 1, 2014 to focus on the Holiday Drive Care Packages and Inventory. We apologize for any inconvenience or disappointment.
We are very excited to introduce our brand-new, made-especially-for-Operation Gratitude Battalion Buddies! We work with Family Readiness Officers and battalion leaders to send these cuddly bears in care packages to our youngest Warriors — the children of deployed Military.

Family Readiness Officers and battalion leaders wishing to **request Battalion Buddy packages should send an email to BattalionBuddy@gmail.com for more information.
**Please Note: We greatly appreciate the service and sacrifice of all military families, but the specific intent of Battalion Buddy packages is to provide comfort to those children who will not see their parent for a long time and need something to hold on to. Please understand that due to very limited resources, we must restrict this program to the children of OVERSEAS deployed/deploying Military only.
