Just as we did during NAB 2006, we're calling the webcast video greetings 'v-rats.'"

About Operation Interdependence®

Operation Interdependence® (OI®) is a national non-profit organization that provides a means for the public to serve and support military personnel, their families and our veterans without impacting valuable resources. OI provides a secure and streamlined process for civilians to serve and support our deployed forces with Civilian Rations® from home, without overloading the military delivery system. It is the premiere delivery system that is logistically sound. Most people are not aware that sending packages and messages to the troops can cause a burden for the military, detract from the mission, and possibly bog down in the system and never reach the troops. Operation Interdependence works in concert with the military supply system to expedite packages to deployed men and women. With OI nothing is wasted, and items that do not meet OI shipping standards are given to military families and our veterans. Such donations represent 40% of OI's total distribution. Working interdependently with organizations, public bodies, corporations and the media, OI volunteers of all ages are aiming to reach all 250,000 deployed troops, every month. Since launching in December 2001, OI has delivered over 1 million c-rats® WITHOUT impacting military resources. For more information please visit the OI website at www.oidelivers.org.
