Operation Never Forgotten (ONF) is a national 501(c)3 non-partisan volunteer organization that creates awareness campaigns for deployed troops, wounded veterans, fallen heroes and military families. Public Service Announcements (PSAs) are produced by ONF through outdoor billboards, airport signs, mall/food store monitors and TV/radio broadcast. ONF educates the public and military families about PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and TBI (traumatic brain injury)… “Invisible wounds.” ONF’s airport PSAs welcome post 9-11 troops home after serving in Iraq or Afghanistan. ONF’s Gold Star Family program fills outdoor billboard requests by surviving families of fallen heroes in their hometowns. See More...


ONF is a rehabilitative facilitator providing physical/mental challenges and positive opportunities for injured OEF/OIF (Operation Enduring Freedom/Operation Iraqi Freedom) veterans… through a program based in Montana called "SAS" (Sports, Afield & Stream). Winter and summer SAS events included extreme sports-based activities, adventure-based education, hunting & fishing opportunities, wilderness serenity, animal companionship therapy, mentorship, comradeship, and celebrity entertainment. SAS provides education for caregivers and veterans dealing with PTSD, TBI, physical disabilities and emotional challenges. SAS programs can help at-risk veterans falling into substance abuse, crime and suicide. Veterans and their caregivers build more trust, gain self sufficiency, make better life choices and improved mental/physical health. ONF helps veterans and their caregivers move forward. SEE MORE…

"SAS" Retreats
From extreme outdoor challenges to relaxing vacations, Sports, Afield & Stream (SAS) is therapeutic for the physically and invisibly injured Veterans and their caregivers. Veterans are offered lifetime opportunities to explore new skills and abilities as they adjust with their new ways of living their lives after combat.

"A-Head of Healing" Workshops
The goal for these workshops throughout the country is for Veterans to live happy, healthy, productive lives after returning home from combat. The program strives to restore the strength, honor, courage and pride that Veterans have always had within. Veterans and their caregivers learn about resiliency, new coping tools and how to trust their journey. They gain hope and learn that they are not alone in their thoughts and actions. The ONF programs also help combat Veterans, help other combat Veterans while on their battlefields at home.

ONF is a 100% volunteer organization with no paid administration so all proceeds go to the warrior. Much appreciation goes to outdoor billboard companies, broadcast stations, and all those who have helped America NEVER forget what it means to be privileged and free!
