Operation Marine Corps Kids.

Seven hundred thousand children in this country have a parent at war. When babies are born to deployed troops, it's doubly hard for both mom and dad. The dad must wait weeks or months to meet his newest child. The mom has the responsibilities of both parents, juggling the exhausting care of a newborn while meeting the needs of other children without the help of her husband. It's a sacrifice, and one that military families make every single day. Operation Marine Corps Kids is an effort designed to support the littlest heroes by sending care packages to the families of deployed troops when babies are born. The packages might include a hand-crafted baby afghan, cap or bonnet, booties, or toy.
