Proceeds from the event will go right back to the non-profit’s resources in hopes of reducing the number of veteran suicides in our area.

“Especially with what’s going on in the world right now with Afghanistan winding down, the number one thing is to raise awareness for our returning veterans and active-duty members. To let them know that there are resources out here like OPFOB and other organizations that we partner up with. There are resources out there for people to reach out to if they need any help,” said Roy Brown JR, CEO/Founder Operations Patriots FOB.
