Operation Love Our Vets (a 501c3, all donations tax deductible) is seeking funding to take hospitalized Veterans out for a day of nature, fun and good food- all presented with love, gratitude and respect.
Our sole intent is to assure our Heroes and Heroines their sacrifice was not in vain and that they're loved, supported and cherished.
Last month we took Poly Trauma (multiple injuries, often as result from IED. Head/brain trauma and amputees are common injuries to this ward). Spinal Cord Injury ward (are both paraplegic and quadriplegic) and Foundations of Recovery to Henry Cowell State Park.
Below is a letter from Doug; he is an inpatient @ SCI Ward, Palo Alto, VA Hospital.

To Operation Love Our Vets, sponsors and volunteers:
I want to take a moment to personally, and on behalf of the other veterans of the Palo Alto, veterans hospital's SCI and Poly Trauma units, to thank your organization for the wonderful experience provided at Henry Cowell park this last May. It was an exciting and adventurous outing, which has helped in making a difficult time for many of us dealing with injuries, a little easier to cope with.
Organizations like yours let us know that the sacrifices we have made are not in vain. Thanks again for all you do.
Please support and share our cause, as it serves our most deserving.
