Today I read about Operation Purple
a free summer camp for kids of deployed troops. I think this is a great idea, because it recognizes children for the sacrifice that they too make when a parent is deployed.
Not sure where the Purple comes from, but it might be a reference to the organization being applied across all branches of service. (As in green is Army, blue is Air Force, but purple is everyone.) We have a concept in the medical corps that someday we may be "Purple Suiters", that is a group of doctors that serves all branches, not Army docs, Air Force docs, and Navy docs. Who knows, a whole lot of people will have to cooperate before that happens!
So does anyone out there have any experience with Operation Purple? I would love to hear about it! Post it here in the comments section.
Haven't been Jeeping much lately, but here's a pic of a great restored Army Jeep we saw at a recent festival.
