Operation Comfort coordinates donations [including money, goods and services] to provide comfortable and rehabilitative living room areas as well as family waiting rooms for service personnel being treated in the burn and orthopedic units at Brooke Army Medical Center [BAMC] in San Antonio, Texas.
Operation Comfort was started by Janis Roznowski, an American Airlines flight attendant who was part of a team transporting soldiers to and from the Middle East.
Janis says, "Having had the great experience of being in the presence of some of the bravest men and women I have ever met, makes me realize that we can never do enough for them. I believe that our military men and women are truly our nation's National Treasure. Now that they are wounded, we must do what we can for them."

Our Objective : * Our Wounded Military First: Operation Comfort believes in showing our wounded men and women that they are appreciated, valued and respected. Our focus is to provide a fresh, useful environment where wounded servicemen can communicate with family and comrades, have access to state-of-the-art computer equipment, large screen entertainment in their social rooms, and comfortable furniture for these rooms and color schemes that are very relaxing therefore providing the most basic things to help lift their spirits and morale and encourage their rehabilitation. * Their Family Second: Operation Comfort believes that assisting the families directly impacts the wounded in a positive manner, since it is not something that they can provide during their rehabilitation and recovery process. Because the rehabilitation of our servicemen oftentimes requires family members to be close by, we make every effort to improve the family stay.
By extending our efforts to Burn/Ortho Waiting rooms, Fisher Houses and the Soldier Assistance Center, we are able to help our wounded servicemen/women have a peace of mind that their family needs are also met. It is our hope that our wounded will recover faster and more completely when they are not burdened with administrative or family concerns. * Their Military Comrades Third: Operation Comfort believes in strong relationships, support systems, and understands how important combat buddies are in the lives of our wounded. We recognize the need of the wounded service personnel to stay in contact with their military comrades as well as family members who are unable to travel to San Antonio. To make this possible, we make sure that computers and telecom gear are provided. We want the servicemen to stay in touch with no cost to them. Programs Amputee Surfing Automotivation-Co
