Operation: Sandwich Brigade

For troop movements, whether getting on a plane or a bus, Bob Hope USO Volunteers form a “Sandwich Brigade” and, like an assembly line, create 150 fully-loaded lunch bags (sandwich, chips, sweets, granola bar, napkin, condiments, water bottle and a ‘stay safe’ card) in about an hour. Another group of volunteers will then hand deliver lunch bags individually to troops for a personal touch. We do this 4 times a year for the Infantry Officer’s Course and twice a year for each deployment of a full 1,000 Marine battalion.
