At Operation Vet NOW Inc. we are dedicated to improving the health and wellness of our US military veterans, with specific emphasis those suffering from i the areas of Combat Related Stress issues as well as Mental Health concerns stemming from military service. OVN’s primary objective is planning, funding, and executing Health & Wellness fairs for veterans and their families, educate, connect, and inform on various aspects pertaining to Combat Stress and mental-health issues.
The health and wellness fairs will be held once a year in each market identified. These fairs will be funded through the fundraising efforts of, and the donations too, the OVN organization.
Fundraising and the fair's will be lead by our highly experienced executive director and his team. He is a seasoned special events manager, marketer, and a combat veteran of nearly 21 years active duty military service. 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 - - improve the Veteran's Health & Wellness who suffer from combat stress and connect them with 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, primarily 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 combat 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 the 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 Health & Wellness fair is the first phase of the OVN endeavor to help our veterans. The long-term vision of our organization is already planning for phase II and III of our mission... To add health and wellness fairs across the USA providing this opportunity to every Veteran.
Our team carries experience in event management in all the major markets, and a passion for the healing of our Veterans.
