Operation Never Forgotten…

Bridges the Gap Between Our Military & Civilian Worlds:

Remembers Our Fallen… Empowers Our Wounded…
Thanks Our Troops… Brings Hope To Military Families…
And Helps Prevent Veteran Suicide.



A Never Forgotten Mission

Operation Never Forgotten (ONF) is a national nonpartisan, 100% volunteer non-profit organization. Its mission is to remember, thank, empower and help rebuild the lives of those Post-9/11 veterans who have sacrificed so greatly to defend our freedoms. This is done through awareness campaigns, transition workshops and outdoor retreats for veterans with physical and/or invisible wounds. ONF cultivates veteran mentors and greatly supports caregivers and military families. ONF also helps educate veterans, military families and the public about suicide prevention.


Awareness Campaigns

ONF awareness campaigns are created through outdoor billboards, airport signs, TV, online marketing and other media as public service announcements (PSAs). These messages are created for/about deployed troops, combat wounded veterans, fallen heroes, military families and veteran suicide prevention.


Warrior/Caregiver Programs

ONF welcomes injured veterans, caregivers and family members to FREE transition workshops and outdoor retreats.

Transition workshops are for veterans and families struggling with post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury (PTSD/TBI). These workshops include suicide prevention training for veteran mentors and caregivers, or for anyone who wants to be better prepared to help save a life.

ONF launched its outdoor programs with “Sports, Afield & Stream (S.A.S.)” that offered veterans once-in-a-lifetime recreational opportunities to include wilderness horseback adventures, big game hunts, fly fishing trips, cattle ranch vacations, ice climbing, back country llama treks, dog mushing, whitewater expeditions, rock climbing, ziplining and more.


Help Protect Those Who Have Protected Us!

When it becomes more difficult for veterans to come home than to go to war… As more veterans struggle with becoming civilians… When military families continue to crumble after active duty… When the stigma associated with invisible wounds prevents veterans from asking for help… When veteran suicide is on the rise… It is time for your unwavering support!

ONF has been a tax-deductible, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization achieving its mission for nearly 10 years.  ONF is proud of no paid administration or staff allowing donations to directly benefit veterans and families.

Donate any amount with any credit card (registered PayPal account not necessary).
