A Never Forgotten Mission

Operation Never Forgotten (ONF) is a national nonpartisan, 100% volunteer non-profit organization for veterans and military families… by veterans and military families. Its mission is to remember, thank, empower and help rebuild the lives of those Post-9/11 veterans and caregivers 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 also cultivates veteran mentors and educates to help prevent veteran suicide.

 

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. Please see and share this video below to help bring awareness to the fight.

 

Warrior/Caregiver Programs

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

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

TRANSITION WORKSHOPS include classroom sessions along with family attractions and/or outdoor recreation for those struggling with post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury (PTSD/TBI). These workshops introduce new resources, coping tools, mental and physical health education, relationship counseling and veteran mentorship.

ONF outdoor retreats and transition workshops cultivate veteran mentors to help reach other veterans in need. Supporting these ONF programs give military families the chance to lead better lives.
