Remembering Hannah Rinehart
Remembering Hannah is an Operation Appreciation event to help Georgia Army National Guard families through times of hardship. Remembering Hannah is to provide emotional and financial support to Mark Rinehart, a Georgia Army National Guard Solider and South Gwinnett teacher, who recently lost a spouse after enduring 60+ days in the ICU and authorizing the decision to amputate both her arms and legs.
Operation Appreciation is hosting this event in memory of Hannah Rinehart, and to demonstrate appreciation for Mark who has dedicated his life to service of others.

How We Help Our Georgia Guard
By working with military Chaplains throughout the state of Georgia our mission is to locate soldiers and their immediate family members who need special consideration for assistance. Our support will reach both Air and Army Georgia Guard families. Once a need is verified for a soldier or their family we will set up fundraisers, find donations, bring community awareness and uncover available resources to help them.
...begins in the heart. Participating in the community with special events, fundraisers and volunteering is the traditional "grass roots" way of finding the needs of our families, neighbors and friends. Involving others creates strong bonds and leads for helping the community grow.
Lead Us To Your Event
Operation Appreciation is looking for opportunities to say "thank you" to our American Heroes. We welcome leads where we can participate on a volunteer basis at events. If you have an event coming up and think that a little red, white and blue will help booster your foot traffic contact us for consideration.
Soldier to Soldier
I would like to focus on the opportunity for a veteran to assist another veteran that is terminally ill. Compassionate Care Hospice of Atlanta is recruiting and training veterans to visit their veteran hospice patients. There is a strong bond from soldier to soldier which allows an important moment of recognition in their lives. Something only soldiers can share. Reach out today and stand by a fallen comrade!
I am an American Soldier.
I am a warrior and a member of a team.
I serve the people of the United States, and live the Army Values.
I will always place the mission first.
I will never accept defeat.
I will never quit.
I will never leave a fallen comrade.
I am disciplined, physically and mentally tough, trained and proficient
in my warrior tasks and drills.
I always maintain my arms, my equipment and myself.
I am an expert and I am a professional.
I stand ready to deploy, engage, and destroy, the enemies
of the United States of America in close combat.
I am a guardian of freedom and the American way of life.
I am an American Soldier.
Operation Appreciation began through community involvement for silent auction items to send care packages during our husbands deployments. The response has been overwhelming. People want to help. They want to be involved. They simply need a resource to become active with. We want to be that resource. Our goal is to serve those who served their country. A smile, a thank you and a you are not forgotten go a long way!
