Operation Pay It Forward

Operation Pay It Forward

Mission Statement

Our mission is to show our appreciation for our fighting veterans by connecting them with others that share the same passions and are willing to get them into the outdoors and enjoying life again. We challenge all of the veterans that participate to “Pay It Forward” by spreading the word to their brothers and sisters that need help or could use some time in the outdoors to re-focus their minds on the important things in life!

About OPIF

There are plenty of worthwhile charities in this world. There are a lot of those that need help and many social benefits are available to those that are going through a bad time or experiencing medical issues.
Our nation’s veterans raised their hands and purposely put themselves in harm’s way to sacrifice for their fellow Americans. Unfortunately, our society has not put the same measures in place to take care of the unique struggles and injuries our combat veterans return home with. Most struggle to simply understand what our returning veterans are trying to cope with in civilian life.
Operation Pay It Forward was founded and organized by veterans that understand the healing process and help by providing a new focus and mission for these veterans. One of the biggest voids is from the lack of comradery and brotherhood that kept them alive in combat situations. In the civilian life, this is most easily duplicated by spending time in the field hunting, fishing or simply enjoying the outdoors.
Our goal is to provide a new focus for our returning veterans and provide them with a new mission to help save their brothers and sisters they served with. The enemy in civilian life is often within the veteran and much more difficult to identify and fight. We are here to help in that battle.

Warrior Transition Battalions

Warrior Transition Battalions (WTBs)

The U.S. Army established Warrior Transition Battalions (WTBs) at major military treatment facilities (MTFs) located around the world. WTBs provide personalized support to wounded, ill and injured Soldiers who require at least six months of rehabilitative care and complex medical management.

A WTB closely resembles a “line” Army unit, with professional Cadre and integrated Army processes that build on the Army’s strength of unit cohesion and teamwork so that wounded Soldiers can focus on healing before transitioning back to Army or civilian status. Within a WTB, wounded, ill and injured Soldiers work with their Triad of Care – primary care manager (normally a physician), nurse case manager, and squad leader – who coordinate their care with other clinical and non-clinical professionals.

WTB Fact Sheet

Community Care Units (CCUs) provide command and medical management assistance to Soldiers as they navigate the Army’s medical treatment system to successfully reintegrate back into the force or transition from the Army. Soldiers whose medical situation allows may receive the same services at a CCU, a unit within the WTB, while recovering at home through the TRICARE network with the support of their Families and communities.
