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, all-volunteer non-profit organization supporting Post-9/11 combat veterans, Gold Star families and deployed troops.
ONF creates awareness to remind the American public of the value of embracing the veteran community. ONF’s transition workshops and outdoor retreats for veterans with physical and/or invisible wounds greatly benefits them and their families.
ONF’s programs strive for life changing impacts resulting in the reduction of veteran divorce, substance abuse and suicide rates. ONF is dedicated to help rebuild the lives for those who have sacrificed so greatly to defend our freedoms
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.
ONF welcomes injured veterans, caregivers and family members to apply for FREE combat veteran transition workshops.
TRANSITION WORKSHOPS include educational sessions along with family attractions and/or outdoor recreation. This program is managed by veterans, for veterans struggling with post-traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury (PTSD/TBI). Classes introduce resources, coping tools, mental and physical health topics, veteran mentorship and more.
OUTDOOR RETREAT HISTORY: ONF first launched its warrior programs in Montana as outdoor retreats titled, Sports, Afield & Stream (S.A.S.). It offered veterans once-in-a-lifetime recreational opportunities: 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. ONF still offers a variety of Montana activities such as these during the transition workshops.
Proud of No Paid Administration!
ONF has continued for over 10 years as a 100% volunteer organization. ONF staff and administration is proud of not ever taking salaries or compensation in-order to maximize our programs. Our compensation is giving military families the chance to lead better lives.
