    Wounded Heroes Assistance
     
We the People, as the recipients of their sacrifices will never be able to repay those Warriors who have been wounded in defense
of our country, but we can honor them by striving every day to provide the support these Heroes need to return to duty
or transition as a proud Veteran into our communities.

Our Mission

Operation First Response, Inc., supports our nation’s Wounded Heroes and their families with personal and financial needs. Services are provided from the onset of injury, throughout their recovery period and along their journey from military life into 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.

Our Cause

It is hard for us to comprehend waking up each day in a hostile country, putting our life on the line to protect people from terrorists who have no fear and no conscience about planning and conducting mass murder. It is harder still to imagine how it feels to be at the heart of a bomb explosion – or to be shot by snipers – or to be the target of a single man or woman whose mission is to be a human bomb.
Sadly, many lives are lost. But of equal importance are the lives that are changed forever in the blink of an eye by severe wounds, life changing amputations, and painful surgeries – often followed by mounting bills at home, necessary job retraining, home renovations and more. Just dealing with the emotional scars is difficult – but with your donations OFR ‘has their back’ on the home front.

Support

Since 2003 there have been over 400,000 new claims submitted to the Veterans Affairs Office and at this point their office is behind in over 1 million cases. These statistics alone clearly give reason for the existence of OFR, we are a bridge that will enable our Veterans to exist during the VA claim process which on average can take from six months to one year. We ask you to make a conscious decision to support those that make this country one of the greatest nations in the world by supporting the efforts of OFR. Please remember that they enlisted of their own free will to defend you and your family. This is your opportunity to put words into actions when you say that you “Support the Troops.”
