Our Approach

Currently, America is being served and defended by an all-volunteer military to do well so well into the future. It is with this same commitment and patriotism that Operation Enduring Gratitude with all her volunteers and partners  endeavor to serve our Veteran Community.

This can only be a successful effort when we pull together as a team with the ongoing commitment of local business', volunteers and local Veterans

Why We Do What We Do ...

“The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation.”
– 1789 General George Washington, our first Commander-in-Chief.
