Operation Deploy Your Dress

Providing Military Dependents with no cost dresses for formal events.


Operation Deploy Your Dress has teamed up with the Fort Benning Community Spouses Club to collect formal attire and accessories and "deploy" them to the military members and family members of the Fort Benning Community FREE of charge in order to offset the cost of military balls and other formal events.


ODYD History

ODYD began at Fort Bliss in late 2015, when founders Renee Chapman, Ronya Rendon, Yvonne Coombes, and Melissa Riely decided to organize a dress swap among their units’ spouses.


It wasn’t long before the idea became an organization, run entirely by dozens of volunteers. 


ODYD is now a well-organized store. Military servicewomen and military spouses can come to ODYD and select one dress and one accessory per year for FREE. They simply need to present their military ID card and sign the record book, and they can walk away without spending a dime.
