Operation Helmet's Photo


OPERATION HELMET provides helmet upgrade kits free of charge to troops in Afghanistan and other dangerous areas, as well as to those ordered to deploy in the near future. These helmet upgrades do four primary things:

• Protection - Shock-absorbing pads keep the helmet from slapping the skull when hit with blast forces, fragments, or being tumbled along the ground or inside a vehicle. Keeps blast-wave from transmitting flexure of the Kevlar shell directly to the skull via too-stiff pads. This decreases the chance of brain injury from IED's, bombs, RPG's, vehicle accidents, falls, etc.
• Comfort - If it is comfortable, it will stay on troop's head longer and more often.
• Stability - Keeps the helmet firmly on the head and out of the eyes.
• Durability – Doesn’t need to be replaced after one month of wear – hard to do when at a Combat Outpost or Forward Operating Base an eternity from a logistics supply point.

68,025 helmet pad upgrade

We are a 100% volunteer, non-partisan, charitable organization headquartered in Montgomery, Texas (near Houston) with volunteer operations around the country. 99.96% of all contributions are used to send upgrade kits to our troops! We have less than one-half of one percent overhead which is used to for very limited expenses related to bank charges or resendding upgrade kits that didn't reach the addressee. This is a labor of love. We have no salaries or payroll. Doc Bob covers all office expenses.
