OC provides for basic hygiene along with a few items of comfort to combat troops
deployed to the remotest locations in the Global War on Terror...
those warriors "at the tip of the spear."


Welcome to Operation Caregiver

OC is currently limiting itself to coffee and Christmas gift shipments to troops in the Middle East. If the US returns to full combat operations against ISIS, or the latest threat, we will resume shipping our Kits. Please stay tuned as this game may go into OT.

Operation Caregiver is a nationwide program operated under the Victory Fund of the Nice Guys (an U.S. Federal IRS tax exempt 501(c)3 public charity) to supply relief to our troops at the "tip-of-the-spear".

These warriors (our sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, and spouses) live in the most primitive conditions. They live in foxholes, tents, Humvees or some unoccupied local structures without heating or air conditioning with temperatures ranging from sub-0 in the winter to 128 Fahrenheit in the summer. The dust storms are Biblical in scale. There are no fixed base facilities with creature comforts (no PX, no chow halls, no running water (no showers or sinks or flush toilets), no electricity), nor access to the mobile PX services. They may go months without a shower, a hot meal and they may run out of the basics of hygiene before re-supply is possible. It is truly a Spartan existence.

That's where we come in. OC provides Caregiver Kits™ (15 items of basic hygiene and comfort) to U.S. troops "far from the flagpole"  (FOB's, FOP's, COP's, Mobile Humvee bases, etc.). We mail our Kits to a command level Sergeants Major who distributes the supplies to the troops who need them most. It is a paradigm that has served us well since our first shipment in 2004.

OUR MISSION is to provide a pathway whereby Americans of any means can support our troops and thereby provide "comfort for those in harm's way." We are non-political and non-partisan. Our only interest is in the physical and spiritual welfare of those who our Government has chosen to place in harm's way.
