Operation Bandana, Supporting Our Military

Operation Bandana is a nationwide ministry, supporting our military men and women who are home and abroad serving our country.

A simple tangible item, the Psalm 91 Bandana, sent to them provides comfort, encouragement, peace and strength through God’s Word. They are also tangible items our men and women in the military can see as support and appreciation from the very people they are determined to protect. With God’s word printed on the bandana, the hope is there to make a kingdom difference in the lives of these men and women. These bandanas at a bulk rate of $3.50 each, serve many practical purposes for the military personnel such as a sweat cloth worn in and outside the helmet, a tourniquet, a cloth to wipe the sand from the eyes or glasses while also providing the word of God to believers and planting seeds to the unbeliever; providing them with one extra piece of armor, the armor of God.

How can you become involved in this ministry?
We are asking businesses, churches (regardless of denomination), individuals, youth groups, Scouts, a school or a classroom, etc to please join us in our effort to get a bandana in the hands of each man and woman deployed.
Decide to support out military, have a yard sale or doughnut sale, etc. to raise money, place a jar in the office or cafeteria to drop change in, yes it will add us and send us your donation in a check or money order made out to “Operation Bandana”.

September 11th is upon us once again. This is a great way to remember fallen Americans, by giving a gift of bandanas in memory of those who “gave all” on American soil.

“What better time to give a donation to Operation Bandanas than the month of November as we remember our veterans on Veterans Day. A gift to “Operation Bandanas” in honor of or in memory of a veteran, both past and present, would be a fine tribute to them. Perhaps your church and/or missions organization would promote our mission throughout October and November, receive an offering on the Sunday preceding or following Veterans Day. And as we celebrate Thanksgiving in November, giving a gift of thanks to those serving in uniform would be appreciated more than we’ll ever know.”–Mary Gray, founder of Operation Bandana.

Operation Bandana began in November 2006, initially to cover troops from Ft. Bragg, N.C. by a military wife and mother, Mary Gray. As the bandanas have gone out and word about this effort has spread, many soldiers, soldiers’ families and chaplains from other military installations have sought out the Psalm 91 bandanas through this effort. The mission has expanded to cover all of our military. The demand is far exceeding the supply. Your donation to this mission-so every military man or woman, who wants one, can have one–could make a difference.

I received a phone call Thursday evening, August 19th, 2010 (yesterday) from a soldier who recently returned home wounded in Afghanistan. He called wanting a phone number to personally thank Mary Gray for beginning this project. He said his bandana was what he believed to have saved his life. He was wearing it when shot. He said it is now covered in his blood. This young soldier from Camp LeJeune, NC wanted us to know how much the bandanas meant to the soldiers. We’ve received many letters and Mary’s received letters and calls but it was the first phone call I had personally received from a soldier. His call wanted me to shout to the world–We Need Bandanas! I did thank him for risking his life for me, my family and for protecting America.

Operation Bandanas

The Neuse Baptist Associational WMU will be sponsoring “Operation Bandanas” as a missions project this year. We will be working with Mary Gray, the Founder of Operation Bandanas (a non-profit organization based out of Fayetteville, NC) and the Chaplains at Seymour Johnson to placing Psalm 91 Bandanas in the hands of the men and women deployed from Seymour Johnson Air Force Base. These bandanas at a bulk rate of $3.50 each will serve many practical purposes for the military personnel while also providing the word of God to believers and planting seeds to the unbeliever. providing them with one extra piece of armor, the armor of God.
Operation Bandana began in November 2006, initially to cover our troops from Ft. Bragg, N.C. by a military wife and mother, Mary Gray. As the bandanas have gone out and word about this effort has spread, many soldiers, soldiers’ families and chaplains from other military installations have sought out the Psalm 91 bandanas through this effort. The mission has expanded to cover all of our military. The demand is far exceeding the supply.

Why Give Psalm 91 Bandanas? They are given to provide comfort, encouragement, peace and strength through God’s Word. They are also a tangible item our men and women in the military can see as support and appreciation from the very people they are determined to protect. With God’s word printed on the bandana, the hope is there to make a kingdom difference in the lives of these men and women.

How can you become involved in this ministry?
With Seymour Johnson being in our own back yard, the ladies of the Neuse Baptist Association wanted to be sure bandanas are in the hands of the men and women being deployed locally. We are asking businesses, churches (regardless of denomination), individuals, youth groups, Scouts, a school or a classroom, etc to please join us in our effort to get a bandana in the hands of each man and woman deployed from SJAFB. Support the men and women who are defending us by providing them with this small token of kindness.It’s so simple. Decide to support out military, have a yard sale or doughnut sale, etc. to raise money, place a jar in the office or cafeteria to drop change in, yes it will add us and send us your donation in a check or money order made out to “Operation Bandana”. We can send you the cards that are included with each bandanas so that you can add a personal note on the card and then we will see that those cards are included in the bandanas you have purchased.

“What better time to give a donation to Operation Bandanas than the month of November as we remember our veterans on Veterans Day. A gift to “Operation Bandanas” in honor of or in memory of a veteran, both past and present, would be a fine tribute to them.

And as we celebrate Thanksgiving in November, giving a gift of thanks to those serving in uniform would be appreciated more than we’ll ever know.”–Mary Gray

We are partnering with Mary in her efforts but for the bandanas to be sent to SJAB, we have compiled a form that can be obtained by visiting getyvonne.com or by emailing one of the people at then end of the article as we will be responsible for insuring the bandanas are sent from this base. When ordered straight through Mary, the bandanas will be sent to her waiting list and not through our SJAFB project.

For more information, on Operation Bandana, you can visit the website: www.operationbandanas.org. but to help with our project, please contact Yvonne Deatherage at 252-560-4073 or through email [email protected]

Donations for the purchase of the bandanas will be greatly appreciated.
