Operation: Love ReUnited -- something to give you warm fuzzies!
I started a foundation called Operation: Love ReUnited. OpLove supports U.S. Military Enlisted Families with patriotic images of their enlistment, importantly before a deployment, and more importantly at their reunion when the deployment has terminated and the soldier is safely home- most people are so overwhelmed by emotions they forget to simply point and shoot their child's first hug after MONTHS of being apart from their daddy or mommy.
OpLove helps families find supporting photographers in their area to take patriotic images of their family before a deployment and then again at their homecoming usually in an airport. The photographers waive all sitting fees, and send a 4x6 printed album of the pre-deployment images to the deployed soldier at no cost to the family once he or she are stationed. The photographer can then offer the family any amount of courtesy products or prints, percentages off- they see fit. The website is only to help families locate a photographer. The families are not obligated to purchase anything.
I'm writing to recruite any interested photographers. If you would like to know more information about OpLove, please feel free to visit our website (please be patient with the site- hopefully we'll be getting a new one shortly from a donation I'm working on (yay!!), http://www.oplove.org, information page for families at
and our photographer's information page at:
You may also ask me any questions that you may have.
Thank you for your time.

I think I remember seeing a TV newsclip locally about someone doing this here, but I failed to write down the name. Anyone know if photographers in your area are doing something similar or joining a group like Op Love?
