Blog-a-thon ’08: Operation First Response

The Mission of Operation First Response, Inc (OFR) is to support our nation’s wounded Heroes and their families with personal and financial needs.

For many of our families the financial hardship begins quickly and for others it is after the domino effect of extra costs and lost wages. At whatever stage they are in when they contact OFR we are committed to doing all we can to support these families because it is our responsibility as American citizens, the heart of OFR is exactly what makes America great… we know that our Freedoms are not free and we are committed to those who make those Freedoms possible.

It is our sincerest hope to educate Americans across the nation to the needs our wounded are facing; we believe with all our hearts that by giving them the respect and honor rightfully due them we will be able to give them the hope of a promising future.

In doing this we will ensure that all that have worn the “Uniform” will be an instant reminder to all Americans that a Hero stands before us…one of courage, strength and love for their country and whether their injuries are visible or not…

We will never forget… all gave some and some gave all!
