  14. SILVER FALLS, OREGON - July 23, 2013 -  Carrying flags that identify their cabins, Operation Purple campers make their way from the dining hall back to their camp for evening campfire.  During the surge years in the Iraq War, Operation Purple sent roughly 250 military kids in Oregon each summer to camp. “Every minute of the day is tailored to support the military community and their kids,” says Ethan Erickson, Executive Director of Tsuga Community Commission which runs the camp. With the end of that war,  the spotlight on US military has moved away as has significant funding for programs like Operation Purple. “The waiting list is always longer than the number of kids we can support,” Erickson says.  This summer 78 kids, aged nine to sixteen, converged on Silver Fall State Park to laugh, play, learn about ecology and experience being in a community that shares a strong common thread.
