Tintu was heaven sent. He listened to every cry out for help. This organization helped me faster than the VA Hospital. Within the same week of needing help I was placed somewhere safe and was giving other resources that reached out as soon as they received my referral. Thank you for all you guys do. Thank you for serving this great country with me and idc y’all deserve to get paid for helping us.

I cannot begin to tell you the work and efforts of this organization! There are several organizations that are listed to help veterans, and realistically, it’s usually a process and takes a little time to get the help you need, but this company……..I spoke to someone around 1230 and explained the expedited help I needed, and they made it happen barely an hour and a half later!!!! THEN, continued to assist me with a new problem that came up directly afterwards! Everyone’s situation is different, but I PROMISE you, these volunteers are legit and will do everything in their power to get you the help you need.
Mr. Tintu is an extraordinary individual with an AMAZING gift for helping others and making them feel important!! Ms. Donna was also awesome at making sure my family and I were taken care of.
Thank you guys SO much for what you did, what you do, and what you will continue to do! ❤️
You have my utmost respect!

My unique situation with the delay in transitioning branches of service put me in a financial situation. Decisive Victory was able to step in and assist in ways other veterans groups couldn’t.

I have been involved with this charity for about a year now. The only thing I can say is WOW! Tintu and Donna are 2 of the most awesome people I have ever met. The charity is about helping Veterans, and guess what, that’s what they do. No red tape, no wait list, no politics. They just continue to help our Veterans anytime, anywhere, whatever is needed.

Operation Decisive Victory is an Amazing group that does so much to help the Veteran community! I have seen first hand how much they care for, and help Veterans in need. They don't just try to put a "bandaid" on a problem, they dig deep and fix the problem. In a world full of people doing things for the wrong reasons, it's so refreshing and encouraging to see an organization doing the Right thing on a daily basis!

I’ve been a paramedic for over 20 years. When I was struggling and went looking for help, I found Operation Decisive Victory. They helped me find resources but they also continue to be there for me when needed. They don’t dump you at the curb. They are quick to help and support you when it’s needed. Other organizations leave you hanging, and wondering why you bothered to reach out to them. ODV does not.

Being a supporter of our Vets and First Responders I always saw there was a need. So many are lost in the system. ODV defies the norm, and goes above and beyond. A veteran did not serve a town, a county or a state, they served this country. So why is money restricted for our vets. They have a passion that I am PROUD to be a part of.

When I first heard of ODV it was by meeting on of their volunteers who was at a restaurant the same time I was and he was toasting to the fallen heroes of our nation. His passion for helping people remember and help our often forgotten or misplaced veterans and their families was also evident in our first conversation. My mother met this same gentleman and decided to start getting to know more about ODV and began volunteering. Within weeks I did as well when it was clear to me they were putting their all into growing so they could better serve and they would need more helping hands. People from all backgrounds, people of all colors and ages and quite a few veterans work their tails off to make things happen with Operation Decisive Victory. Family coming first is so important in life in my opinion, and this group treats everyone like family. They ensure the people in need that they come in contact with have their needs met to the best of their abilities. Dona works tirelessly planning and making things happen- she is headstrong and determined while also personable and welcoming. Tintu has many trades he brings to the table for different aspects of ODV with photography and AV, he also works alongside Dona helping with every event to make things happen! I would say they are a power couple! ODV recently had an event (first ever if it’s kind by them) in memory of my brother. The photo is of Dona and Brian Wray who made it possible to get a My Bootprints custom print in memory of my brother made for my family and presented it to my parents (pictured) at the event. It was a very cool surprise and my parents were so grateful.

One of the volunteers recently heard I had a need (outside of ODV) and reached out to me offering to help. These are the kind of people that make up ODV. The small amount of volunteering I’ve been able to do with ODV and every contact I’ve had makes me proud to know them all and I am thrilled to be able to grow with them and continue being helping hands to so many lives in need. Our veterans need people and organizations like this!

I am a GOLD STAR MOTHER. ODV is a non-profit that I wish to support because of their dedication to the Veteran Community. They are committed to making sure that no man is left behind whether it is for something very simple or totally complex. They also run on a Volunteer basis. I thank them for their integrity and sincere care for all Veterans.

After several years of working with various VA representatives to get some benefits I gave up after hitting road block after road block.
I met Tintu and Donna Parameswar at an event we were at. After 10 minutes of talking Tintu told me I would not be able to find my records due to a fire. He started working with me and in less than a year I started receiving benefits.
Thanks to the Parameswar family and Operation Decisive Victory for such a fantastic job.
I believe they can easily accomplish anything but the impossible. The impossible takes a little longer.

I came to know about ODV during a tattoo fundraiser to help veterans. I have been helped by many people from ODV for different situations including help with VA benefits package, GI bill, Healthcare, Military funeral arrangements, someone to talk to, ect..ect… Operation Decisive Victory has some high class leaders who go out of their way to help our current and veteran military brother and sisters. Thank you

The VA in Salisbury contacted ODV on 2/25/21 about assisting a veteran to get home to Maine. ODV sprung into action and were able to help get this veteran a train ticket within a couple of hours. The ODV team were thoughtful and professional to work with.

Operation Decisive Victory has helped me tremendously by approaching the root of the problem I was having in my life that caused me to be in a hardship to began with and providing a solution for the problem. Other veterans that are included at ODV reached out to me multiple times in a professional manner and they were willing to provide me with the help I needed and to further address any other issue I was having. Being an Infantryman in the United States Army has blessed me, but getting out was the hardest thing. ODV made me feel I wasn't alone and they reached out to me very promptly and covered my back so the problem stopped as it changed my life. Thank you ODV and I recommend donating to this NON Profit for the reason that they save lives.

I am proud of my team's accomplishments over the past year and half in operation as a direct service provider to the veteran community. Our partnerships with the community allows us to serve all veterans - particularly those that are disqualified from other programs, or are referrals from other organizations.
As a 100% volunteer organization, the team's heart and commitment is evident in our continued efforts to change the narrative on how veteran and first responder issues are addressed.

My best friend recommended me to Operation Decisive Victory because they had helped him immensely with his problem, so I informed him to contact them on my behalf. I was contacted immediately and told them of my concerns for not being taken seriously from my service connected injuries from the VSO. Mr. Tintu and Mr. Stephens started the process and guided and directed me on what information I needed to submit to the compensation board. Mr. Tintu took my case and he was professional, informative, and understanding. He has arranged for me to have another hearing in two weeks. Without Mr. Tintu and Operation Decisive Victory, my case would be just another case to be filed away. I recommend anyone who is having issues getting some help and answers to contact them because they are a tremendous organization for veterans and they truly care.

ODV, As your board president I cant express enough how impressed I am with all you have accomplished in such a short time. The impact you have had on the lives of our military and first responders has been eye watering and truly makes me proud every day to be an American. The way the team searches out individuals that need support and the extra effort you all make with real time decisions have saved lives of those that risked all for our freedom and safety. Proud to be part of this team.

As a small business located in an area where we have an above average population of retired, current and disabled American Heroes. It’s been an honor to partner up with an organization who helps fill the gaps of the system.

I’ve personally watched their response time and it’s amazing. With no regard to time of day or day of the week. They are all on it.

Can’t wait to see what this organization does in the coming years.

Operation Decisive Victory is a nonprofit with so much passion behind it. The founders, team members, and volunteers truly care about each individual or family that needs assistance. I have seen them grow so much in the past few years and know the sky is the limit for this organization. You can count on ODV day and night and they will pick up the phone, lend a hand, and help you anyway they can. If you choose to support a charity, please choose ODV, as you will not regret it.

I've been working with them for sometime now. Helping them with providing for Veterans across the country. I've never met anyone that has so.much compassion for our Veterans than ODV. I'm am more than honored to help them in anyway I can and to be able to call them my brothers and sisters! They have always been open and honest about everything they do and are trying to do and have never asked for anything in return other than support for our Veterans. If everyone even showed half the compassion and drive to help help, then there would not be one Veteran left behind, which is the goal they are seeking! And with all our help, it is not a goal that can't be reached! So I would say, anyone who who has a opportunity to help ODV please contact them and lend a hand no matter how small or how big, it all helps a Veteran.

We have had the pleasure of working with Operation Decisive Victory multiple times in the past few years. We are both non profits and we are able to work together to get things done for our veterans. Could not ask for better friends or co-workers. Dona and Tintu and their gang are one of a kind. Thank you ODV for all you do for our Military Veterans. Look foward to working with you again in the near future

This has been the best and most honest organization i have ever worked with and continue to work with. Our Veterans are being left out and forgotten! And that is how so many feel! Our Veterans do not deserve to feel this way. No matter how much we give, it is still so small compared to what they gave for us! And ODV has been working so very hard to do the best they can to make sure as many Veterans as possible know that people are out here that are trying to help and has not forgotten them! But ODV cannot do it alone, and they shouldn't have to do it alone, we all owe it to our Veterans. Its not how much you can or cannot give, its that you gave! So please, if you are reading this and you have been thinking about helping, any and all your help will make a big difference in a Veterans life!

We’ve had a wonderful experience working with ODV. They’ve stepped in where we couldn’t (we are also a non-profit) and helped Veterans in need. They’ve guided these Veterans through the difficult task of getting a disability rating. They are an advocate for those who deserve so much. ODV is is quick with their responses and fast and efficient when it matters the most. We can’t wait to work with ODV more in the future! Thank you for all that you do!

I can't recommend ODV higher! ODV and its personnel have been absolutely vital for me to get my VA rating. When I began this journey I was lost. I ended up using a VSO that signed me up then went silent for two months. I reached out to ODV and I immediately felt like they had my back and would work miracles to get me through the process. I have had a ton of questions and ODV ALWAYS got back with the answers in a timely manner and made me felt supported.

If you know someone who is thinking about getting their VA rating, you have to call ODV and let them help guide you/them through the process. Trust me it is worth your/their time!
