Two things to note, an average of 22 veterans kill themselves every day, and Operation Restored Warriors is working to do something about that terrible statistic.

The cost of sustaining the freedoms we so cherish as a people and a nation are increasingly carried upon the shoulders of the men and women of our Armed Forces.

Their immense personal cost is only just now being recognized in our nation through catchwords like PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), Combat Related Stress (CRS), as well as physically wounded warriors, suicide and other classifications.

Their battles are real, the life wounds often deep, and never has a clear path to restoration been more needed yet found so scarce.

Operation Restored Warrior is open to all faiths and brings together mission, healing and ministry to places and memories within the warrior`s heart that need the hope, and the healing found through their experiential, multiple day, wilderness setting 'counterattacks'.

Their cornerstone 5-day program is called the 'Drop Zone' and for over seven years has proven to help service members from all branches of our military.

From intelligence analysts to Navy SEALs and Delta Force, and from Chaplains to Surgeons and everyone in between, healing knows no boundaries.

Participants have experienced the freedom, restoration and healing their hearts and lives have longed for and so desperately needed.
