On July 19, 2018, The New York Attorney General's Office reported on the operations of Operation Troop Aid, a former charity that has recently dissolved, in a press statement titled, "A.G. Underwood Announces Multistate Settlement With Military Charity For Failing To Properly Oversee Donations Made In Conjunction With National Retailer Harris Jewelry." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information, please see The New York Attorney General's Office press statement.

  • On July 19, 2018, The Federal Trade Commission published a list of enforcement actions, which includes Operation Troop Aid. For more information, please see The Federal Trade Commission list.

  • On July 19, 2018, The California Attorney General's Office published a list of recent enforcement actions. For more information, please see The California Attorney General's Office press statement.

The concerns raised about organizational legitimacy and/or federal tax law compliance are serious both in nature and scope and have thus warranted this CN Advisory. We have published this advisory to provide donors with content that they may find useful when making their giving decisions. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the authors of sources used for the reported information, and not those of Charity Navigator. Charity Navigator is not responsible for the nature or content of the information presented through such external sources and websites.
