10,000 and counting. Soldiers Organized Services (SOS) has transported over 10,000 servicemen and women and their families since their conception in May 2007 FREE!
The 10,000th individual is a servicemember's spouse who will be arriving at the Palm Springs International Airport at noon April 13, 2010. Soldiers Organized Services (SOS) will be there to commemorate the event. Please be part of our celebration and help us spread the news.
Thanks to the many dedicated volunteer drivers and the generosity of hundreds of individual donors who want to show our gratitude, respect, and encouragement for our troops, SOS has been able to keep their commitment of Leave no serviceman stranded at the airport, bus or train station.
Most of these brave young men and women, serving our country, cant afford the $200 taxi fare needed to get to the Marine Base in Twenty-Nine Palms. Thats when SOS step in to make sure our men and women in uniform are shown the respect and support they deserve.
SOS needs the desert communities assistance to ensure SOS mission to transport active-duty military and their families, offer hope, encouragement, financial assistance for everyday living expenses, a warm meal, and a friendly ear to listen continues without interruption.

What a great thing for them to do.
Originally, they just did Palm Springs, but now they go all the way out to Ontario which is really good because there are so few non stops in & out of PS from many places.
Ontario is quite a distance from 29 Palms which is up in the hi desert, not really close to anything.
