The mission of Operation First Response, Inc (OFR) is to serve all branches of our nation’s Wounded Heroes/Disabled Veterans and their families with personal and financial needs. Services are provided from the onset of injuries or illness, throughout their recovery period and along their journey from military life to the civilian world. Financial aid varies as each case is based on individual needs ranging from rent, utilities, vehicle payments, groceries, clothing, and travel expenses.
In May 2010, Jason Redman and his wife founded and launched Wounded Wear, a Non-Profit organization committed to providing wounded warriors free clothing and clothing modifications based off Redman’s experiences with his own wounds and public reactions to his injuries. His initial goal with Wounded Wear was to reignite pride within our warriors despite their injuries. To date, Wounded Wear has provided over 1 Million dollars in clothing and modifications. Wounded Wear also launched a retail clothing line, clothing for patriots to raise awareness and help fund the mission.
We are an Association of Combat Veterans from all branches of the United States Armed Forces who ride motorcycles as a hobby. Our mission now is to support and defend those who have defended our country and our freedoms. Our focus is to help veteran care facilities provide a warm meal, clothing, shelter, and guidance, or simply to say “Thank You.” and “Welcome Home.”
The Pathway Home, Inc. provides comprehensive treatment for our Nation’s military personnel who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan. We assist those impacted by Post Traumatic Stress (PTS), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and other post-combat mental health challenges to successfully reintegrate into their families and the community at large.
Our goal at Amputee Outdoors is to give other severely injured veterans that same kind of confidence. We hope that through leading by example we will help others to understand that they can do whatever they dream. We will give them a new perspective on a better and more normal life, one in which their injuries pose no limits on their ambitions. We want to raise public awareness of the plight of severely injured veterans, as well. We hope to help others see that living a routine, everyday life is achievable.
We are VETERAN OWNED. The Oscar Mike Foundation was founded by injured Veterans who understand what other injured Veterans need to get “On the Move” and remain productive members of society. We can relate to them, because we are them. The Oscar Mike Foundation wants to see all injured Veterans utilize their full potential and live rewarding and productive lives.
The Patriot Guard Riders is a diverse amalgamation of riders from across the nation. We have one thing in common besides motorcycles. We have an unwavering respect for those who risk their very lives for America’s freedom and security including Fallen Military Heroes, First Responders and Honorably Discharged Veterans. If you share this respect, please join us.

“The Patriot Guard Riders is a 100% Volunteer, Federally registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization which ensures dignity and respect at memorial services honoring Fallen Military Heroes, First Responders and Honorably Discharged Veterans.”

The Semper Fi Fund, and its program America’s Fund, provide immediate financial assistance and lifetime support to post 9/11 wounded, critically ill and injured members of all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, and their families, ensuring that they have the resources they need during their recovery and transition back to their communities.
Debbie Lee founded America’s Might Warriors, after her son Marc was the first Navy SEAL to be killed in Iraq on August 2, 2006. In Marc’s Last Letter Home, he asked for friends and family to “pass on the love and kindness and precious gift of human life”. Since then, America’s Mighty Warriors has been fighting to support our troops, the fallen and their families and to work with like-minded organizations to do the same.

Our troops and their families sacrifice so much for our freedoms. We want to inspire, encourage and motivate those whose lives have been touched by war and loss. America’s Mighty Warriors focuses on two main programs to help warriors and their families get access to the support they deserve: Gold Star Respite and Got HBOT? Additionally, America’s Mighty Warriors works hard to advocate for our troops and conducts Random Acts of Kindness (as Marc requested in his Last Letter Home) to ensure that they are acknowledged for their sacrifices.

We are pleased to announce our partnership with The Whiteheart Foundation. They are helping us with our year round program, Veterans Charity Ride, USA.

The White Heart Foundation started as a sole charity event – the Ride to the Flags. It was with motorcycles that we were able to channel so much good for our veterans.

As the event grew, so did our foundation. Eventually, the White Heart Foundation became a year-round venture focusing on helping our severely wounded heroes.

While we strive to do as much as we can to support our veterans, we always knew that we could do more. That’s why we partnered with Veteran’s Charity Ride. We know, firsthand, the positive impact two-wheel therapy can have on the mental state of our veterans.

It’s not every day a veteran can be loaned a beautiful Indian motorcycle and take an all-expense paid for trip throughout the west. The stories are amazing. The camaraderie even more so.

With post-traumatic stress numbers as high as they’ve ever been, now is the perfect time to embrace such a great program. We are proud to partner with Veteran’s Charity Ride to offer deserving vets a chance to clear their mind and ride through the backroads of this beautiful country they have sworn to protect.

Our Mission: Enabling wounded and injured veterans to achieve personal and professional success as business and community leaders.

As an independent organization, we are not managed by any other Veteran’s groups and we raise funds solely for our program and the Veterans we serve. To learn more about us visit www.wyakin.org.
