We are a group of veterans working to empower others to turn their stories of struggle into stories of success. Although that journey takes on a different form for each unique situation and participation in any of our programs is completely voluntary, the goal remains the same… to connect veterans with the resources they need, help them successfully find employment to support their families, and encourage them to give back to the
What happens to the women who have served in the Armed Forces? Are they really prepared for their return to civilian life, a life that is different than the one they just left as well as the one they left when they entered the service? Many find themselves jobless, homeless, and even penniless. Imagine having given the ultimate sacrifice to one’s country and not being able to financially support one’s family after returning to the States?

OPERATION HELMET provides helmet upgrade kits free of charge to troops in Afghanistan and other dangerous areas, as well as to those ordered to deploy in the near future. These helmet upgrades do four primary things: Protection – Shock-absorbing pads keep the helmet from slapping the skull when hit with blast forces, fragments, or being tumbled along the ground or inside a vehicle. Keeps blast-wave from transmitting flexure of the Kevlar shell directly to the skull via too-stiff pads. This decreases the chance of brain injury from IED’s, bombs, RPG’s, vehicle accidents, falls, etc. Comfort – If it is comfortable, it will stay on troop’s head longer and more often. Stability – Keeps the helmet firmly on the head and out of the eyes. Durability – Doesn’t need to be replaced after one month of wear – hard to do when at a Combat Outpost or Forward Operating Base an eternity from a logistics supply point.
