Operation Comfort Warriors is a program dedicated to meeting the needs of wounded, injured or ill military personnel by providing them with comfort items not usually supplied by the government. OCW ensures that patients at U.S. military hospitals and warrior transition units are given items like sweat suits, DVDs, puzzles, electronic devices, books, calling cards and more. OCW also provides larger items such as ping pong tables, entertainment centers, computers, kayaks and other recreational goods for use by wounded warriors in common areas.

All members with paid 2014 dues will be entered in the lottery by membership number. If a member’s number is drawn at the monthly Post meeting, and they are present at the meeting, they will win $50. If the member is not present, that money will stay in the lottery and an additional $50 will be added for the next monthly meeting. New members will be eligible after their first meeting. All Post members with 2014/15 cards will be in the drawing, but you must be present to win.
