UPDATE – Operation Greeting 2012: Supporting U.S. Troops
As we all prepare for the holidays, I wanted to express my thanks to the ESA family for supporting Operation Greeting.
This year, we collected 1,800 cards, which means we have reached our goal of creating and mailing 10,000 cards to our troops since becoming a supporter of the campaign in 2009. What an amazing effort from ESA students and staff!
Cards are now en route to U.S. troops in Germany, Afghanistan, and to U.S. Army hospitals where more than 2,000 American troops and three bomb dogs will receive our greetings and well wishes.
I am so thankful to live in this country and to be a part of this organization.

Operation Greeting 2012: Supporting U.S. Troops
Ombudsman Educational Services is once again joining forces with sister division Spectrum Center Schools and Programs and the corporate office of Educational Services of America to show gratitude and support for U.S. troops who are away from their families during the holidays.
Students and staff are creating handmade greeting, get-well-soon, thank-you and holiday cards, which will be collected and sent to U.S. soldiers deployed around the world and to the Landstuhl Army Medical Center in Germany.
ESA’s Ombudsman division has been a supporter of Operation Band-Aid since 2009. In the last three years, Ombudsman and Spectrum Center students and staff have created and sent more than 8,000 greeting cards to U.S. troops serving overseas. This year, the goal is to collect enough cards to achieve our goal of 10,000 cards.
The partnership provides community service experience for our students, and more importantly, support for real American heroes – our U.S. service men and women.
