Operation Grip and Grin


As the wars overseas are winding down and the services are cutting troop strength many soldier, airmen, seamen and Marines are returning home. Some of these young men and women suffer hardships due to physical injuries, mental wounds and the loss of their military family unit. We are attempting to reach out to those Marines in need of camaraderie and support in our community through what we like to call “Operation Grip and Grin.” It is our intention to grip them by the hand, welcome them home with proud smiles, and let them know they have a place and friends here to turn to.
