YOU ALL HAVE HELPED A LITTLE ORGANIZATION DO SO MUCH GOOD OVER THE LAST DECADE THAT IT ACTUALLY CREATED A PROBLEM...
WE DON'T HAVE ENOUGH SPACE OR EQUIPMENT TO DO WHAT WE DO BEST.
Our programs and participation continue to grow, which is a good problem.
The solution is more equipment and a facility large enough to store and maintain it all.
Grant Currier and the Linden Group donated their time and talents to layout the perfect multi-use facility.
Storage for all of our adaptive sports equipment, airplane, trucks and off-road vehicles.
Enough floor space for team sports and fundraising events when vehicles are taken out.
Room to facilitate growth and sustainability for years to come.
The beautiful Poplar Grove Airport, owned by the Thomas family, is located 3 miles from the OM Compound.
This is where we host several core programs from flight lessons to off-roading and marksmanship.
We currently borrow storage space for equipment here at the airport and a plane for flight lessons.
The Thomas family has been kind enough to grant us the PERFECT LOCATION to make this dream come true.
It is rare that a company gives so much without asking for anything in return, but Ford Motor Company continues to do exactly that.
Without Ford, our programs and the OM Compound wouldn't be what they are today.
We intend to show the world how grateful we are forever.
When veterans arrive for programs they will be EXCITED to see what exists for them.
When partners and donors come to visit they will be PROUD of what they make possible.
When volunteers and staff arrive to serve they will be HONORED to be part of the mission.
WHEN INJURED VETERANS SAY WE HAVE THE BEST PROGRAMS EVER CREATED IT'S BECAUSE INJURED VETERANS DECIDE WHAT WE DO AND HOW WE DO IT.
KEEPING INJURED VETERANS "ON-THE-MOVE" BY ADAPTING & OVERCOMING EVERYTHING TOGETHER

“10 years ago, when other disabled veterans helped me set up shelves and desks in my garage, I never imagined being where we are at today or seeing so many people getting Oscar Mike tattoos on their bodies. It has been such an honor to see the incredible impact our mission has had!” - Noah (founder/president)
