Our Special Operations Soldiers are the most highly trained soldiers on the planet. Seldom seen and intentionally confidential, these are the men whose exploits are the stuff of books and movies. However, we often forget these brave warriors have families and are the fathers of sons and daughters. No amount of courage or heroism changes the reality that these soldiers are made of flesh, blood, and bone. The families of these fallen or critically wounded heroes need our support.
The mission statement of Operation One Voice (OOV):
Operation One Voice, Inc is a not–for-profit corporation dedicated to raising funds and awareness for the financial needs of the children of fallen Special Operations Forces (SOF).
Supporting the Operation One Voice charity by helping the children of our military is a natural fit for the Morten Andersen Family Foundation.
