Operation Undergarment is a grass roots clothing drive to provide injured and sick soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen that are deployed in combat zones with clothing items to make their hospital stays more comfortable.
When soldiers are injured in battle or become sick they are taken to field hospitals in Iraq or Afghanistan are given the best medical care. Quite often their clothes are cut off, burned or soiled and they are disposed of.
When these soldiers are evacuated from theater, they are transported to Landstuhl, Germany for further treatment then returned to a hospital in the States. These soldiers are usually transported from theater to Germany wrapped in blankets or hospital gowns.
Likewise, in Germany, the soldiers do not have much in the way of clothing while in the hospital and lack the creature comforts we feel they deserve.
The Department of Defense has a great program in place to provide soldiers with clothing once they are released from the hospital in Germany.
Operation Undergarment has been in operation since 2004 and has given comfort and dignity to hundreds of wounded soldiers.
We collect NEW AND UNUSED underwear, t-shirts, socks, slippers, sweat pants and pajamas to be issued at field hospitals in theater and in Germany to the injured soldiers.
Please join us in supporting our wounded and sick soldiers, marines, sailors, and airmen by starting a collection box. The soldiers receive excellent medical care and their basic needs are met. Let us come together and provide them dignity and comfort.
We have several donation sites already that you may drop-off clothing items at or you can contact CJ Farnham for suggestions on where to setup your own drop-off point.
100% of all money raised on this site goes to postage or to our adopted wounded soldiers!

to Chris F
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
Thank our Soldiers!
Help us help a wounded soldier!

A very special tribute to David Hawkins!
Dear Operation Undergarment,
My father David Hawkins was a pilot during WWII serving with what was then the Army Air Corp. He passed away last week and several of my fishing buddies collected money and asked me to donate it on his behalf. I believe men like my father as well as the young men currently risking their lives to protect our freedom deserve our support so I just completed donating through PayPal the $100.00 my friends donated. I hope it helps. Sincerely John Hawkins
Rest in Peace David Hawkins!
God bless you John Hawkins and your fishing buddies!!
