Mission Statement for OP1VET

To provide both quality and patriotic gear to our brothers and sisters alike. With our focus on giving back to Veterans in need, as we grow so will the number of Veterans that we help. This will be done with submissions from our customers as well as working with State and National VA Health Networks. 

Our mission is "Changing 1 Veteran's Life at a Time". A portion of the proceeds will change the life of 1 Veteran a year, with LIVE Facebook feeds, documenting the process.
