OTK Support Request Form

Do you know a military family Operation Top Knot (OTK) should be helping?

To receive Top Knot support, a military family must meet the following criteria: Have a deployed* parent or be an active duty military service woman AND be expecting a child or have a child under the age of two.

The OTK team focuses on serving expectant spouses of deployed service members and active duty female service members. (OTK occasionally makes exceptions to the eligibility above based on verifiable special circumstances.)

To submit a family for Operation Top Knot support, please complete the following form NO EARLIER THAN THREE MONTHS PRIOR TO THE BABY'S DUE DATE. Each blank on the form MUST be answered completely. Incomplete/too early nominations will be returned (the more complete the information provided, the better OTK Angels will be able to "shower" these expecting families with support).

All applicants must submit the following documentation for validation:

  • Note from doctor validating pregnancy and due date or other verifiable medical proof
  • For those who have already given birth – DD Form 1172 DEERS verification
  • For special circumstances – verifiable proof of any special circumstances submitted
  • Copy of military ID
  • Deployment Orders or other proof of current deployment

VERY IMPORTANT: We are in the process of migrating to a new database this week. Signup forms are disabled until the migration is complete. Please check back later in the week, or use the contact form below for immediate assistance. Thank you for your patience as we upgrade our services for you!
