Washington State Operation: Military Kids reaches geographically dispersed youth of National Guard and Reserves in four different ways. Through Speak Out for Military Kids (SOMK), Hero Packs, the Mobile Technology Lab (MTL) and Ready, Set, Go! (RSG) Training. The focus in the early going has been on the RSG! training and program development at the local level into which we try to incorporate the MTL, SOMK and Hero Packs as appropriate.

Our OMK Team consists of 4-H, National Guard, Reserves, The Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI), Boys and Girls Clubs and Staff from other branches of the service. Involving the active military is important for our state. We have major Army, Air Force and Navy installations. Washington OMK is able to work with the installations to leverage programs and gain access to facilities they have.
