OPERATION SAFETY 91's Founder, Edward Ganster, celebrated his 4th of July in Heaven! Ed passed to the next life on 7/3/2014 after a 34 day hospitalization in which he proved his faith in Jesus and his courage. God touched the lives of literally countless men and women Responders across America and beyond through the life and efforts of this one man. Ed founded OPERATION SAFETY 91, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, more than six years ago, and planned and hosted six outstanding Annual Tribute Events in Orlando to honor Central Florida Responders: Firefighters, EMS, Law Enforcement, Corrections, and Military. Under his leadership and thanks to the generosity of the friends of OS91, to date over 2,050,000 Psalm 91 Cards have been made and shipped to Responders in 44 States and 10 foreign countries free of charge.
Partnering with businesses, organizations, churches, schools, ministries, and individuals, Ed spread the OS91 message everywhere he went. Ed was a visionary, untiring in his efforts, and he believed that with God nothing is impossible!
OS91's mission of Honoring and Protecting America's Protectors moves forward. Ed's vision is carried on by his marriage and ministry partner and co-founder Mary Ganster, together with OS91 National Spokesperson COL Danny McKnight, U.S. Army (Ret.), Ranger Ground Commander of the Battle of Mogadishu of "Black Hawk Down" renown, our devoted Board of Directors, and our Advisory Council. Also joining the OS91 Team is Founder of By Your Side Ministries Dave Gillum and President Rebecca Martin with their Ministry members.
Edward Ganster's Legacy, OPERATION SAFETY 91, lives on!
