My Dad is my hero. He also happens to be a Veteran who served in the Navy during the Vietnam War, which makes supporting foundations like Operation Warrior Shield even more special to me. Operation Warrior Shield is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, whose primary mission is to provide comprehensive support programs for service members, veterans, and first responders, with a focus on “Healing Their Hidden Wounds” through no-cost holistic wellness services. No matter the age, type of service, or years of service, it is imperative that veterans, first responders, and their families receive the help they need for wounds both visible and within.
