Operation Second Chance is an Amazing organization that has far exceeded my expectations for support. I was injured in Afghanistan in July of 2013. I sustained several injuries, one of which was significant vision loss in my right eye due to shrapnel from a rocket hitting my face. OSC has covered the cost for a back up camera and installation in my new truck. In turn this has given me the opportunity to be a safer driver not only for myself but people around me. Since I cant see well enough out of my right eye, there are much more blind spots while backing up or switching lanes. This back-up camera covers those blind spots. Now I have great confidence in my ability to drive safely! Thank you OSC and all of the donors for making this possible!

Operation Second Chance is a wonderful organization and resource for our beloved men and women of uniform who have sacrificed so much. Many nonprofits in my opinion waste so much time and precious resources and fail not to touch the core need, this organization understands that need and delivers. I can clearly testify from many angles of observation of OSC events that a smile from a hero is badge of honor for the organization. God-speed Operation Second Chance!

Operation Second Chance is pretty phenomenal...I really appreciate the camaraderie I feel when hanging with some of the other Warriors and their families. I also understand that I wouldn't have met a lot of great people including the staff . My wife and I really appreciated some of the events that we have been to attend, it gave us a chance to do something that we may have never done otherwise.

I've had the privilege to be involved with several events with Operation Second Chance. Their helpful volunteers go to the extreme to provide support for injured prior service members. They offer an opportunity for these individuals to enjoy being able to regain the lost feeling of comradery. Meeting with the individuals being provided support has been an en-lighting experience for myself. I got to see first hand, the smiles and genuine feelings of happiness these young men were able share when we met. The brothership is a bond we all will share forever. OSC is an organizaton I will always support any way possible.

I absolutely love this organization. It has helped me bond with others while out and about. I am suffering from PTSD and I have a hard time meeting people and making new friends because of trust issues. This organization has helped me in that sense. I can not thank the organizers and volunteers enough for the friendship and their time. Thank you OSC!!!

The story of Operation Second Chance is one of selfless service. Its founder gave up a lucrative job in the financial industry. Now, a large network of volunteers from Florida to Montana work together to provide great outings for our Wounded Warriors. Our overhead costs are low so that just over 90 cents of every dollar donated actually goes to help our Wounded Warriors. I have worked with this organization for about five years and help to conduct fishing expeditions here in the Highland Lakes of central Texas as well as hiking and camping in the Big Bend National Park. Operation Second Chance has blessed the lives of many Warriors - one at a time with care, respect and a chance to get out of the hospital environment and relax and enjoy the great outdoors.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand the number of volunteers.
