Operation Snapshot Brings More Smiles to Iraq

Thanks to our donors and Polaroid, a new shipment of cameras and film have reached 3 different requestors in Iraq to bring smiles to the Iraqi people. Operation Snapshot remains one of our most popular project requests and is a wonderful opportunity for our troops to create positive relationships with the children and families in Iraq.

LtCol Tayrn Gude receives Operation Snapshot supplies

Marines LtCol Tayrn Gude and 1stLt Pat Keane and Army Sgt. Charity Lewis each received 40 cameras and 725 packs of film.

As Sergeant Lewis wrote, "Your organization has given the American people the perfect avenue to put the help and aid where it is truly needed, I hope that we can continue to do good things."

We can't do it without caring and committed troops and without the support of our amazing donors.  Thank you for helping us make a difference.
