There was no one registered in my area either so I went out and found someone. This lady was so surprised she said "you always here about volunteers helping military families but I have never had it happen for me".

Her husband is on his 3rd tour in Iraq and god willing will be home in Oct. His landscape will be rockin by the time he gets back, it already looks 100% better.

I would recommend it for every contractor out there. If no one is registered go find someone ask around, make it happen, you will be richer for it.

Since I have only been out since April 09 I want to thank you all for donating your time and service to our troops. I can assure you it is greatly appreciated. All my clients are Military and all get discounts plus I have 3 lawns I do for free since their husbands are deployed. I figure I have to pay it forward since it was done for me while I was deployed.

With all due respect, sir,...there is no need to thank us for being members of Operation Greencare (and those of whom are not, but do it on their own). It is US, who thank YOU for doing what you have done and what you do. And God bless you.

Well it was my pleasure to serve this great country. My wife is still in and plans to make it a career. Now I hope to take all the things I learned and apply them in the green industry.
