Vet Connect 5k Run & 1 Mile Walk is Open!
The funds we raise go directly toward the facilitation of connecting Veterans to care. We do this in various ways, and continue to seek out new innovations.
Read about our initial mission objective below:
At Operation Vet NOW Inc. we are dedicated to improving the health and wellness of our US military Veterans, with a specific emphasis on those suffering in the areas of Transitional and Combat Related Stress issues .
Our objectives for each Veteran and their family is to educate, connect them to care, and inform them on various aspects pertaining to Transitional & Combat Stress and mental-health issues. The Veterans Connect Expo will be held once a year in each market identified. These expos will be paid for through the fundraising efforts of, and the donations too, the OVN organization.
Fundraising and the expo’s will be led by our highly experienced event director and team members who work in events industry. OVN will liaison with local communities, of the representative markets, to bring together various organizations to assist in supporting the event efforts through live participation.
OVN has one primary Mission - - get Vets connected to care, that suffer from transitional & combat stress, providing the right help to heal their mind, body, and soul.
Currently over 20% of Veteran’s suffer from PTS alone, and an average of 20+ veterans commit suicide daily, many due to these combat stress disorders and injuries.
OVN is committed and determined to improve the lives of those hero's suffering from these issues and reduce the suicide rate among veterans and improve life after duty in general.
Many veteran organizations exist in America today, but only a few focus on our Warriors mental health and wellness, beyond catastrophic combat injury. With our events, we are driven to get every Veteran possible to attend, and educate them, and their families, not only how to identify, but how to take action when symptoms occur of these silent injuries.
Additionally, we will provide information to the families, to help them deal with, support, and find care for their beloved service members.
The Veterans Connect Expo is the first phase of the OVN endeavor to help our Veterans. Click here to learn how you can help!
