This will be done with submissions from our customers as well as working with State and National VA Health Networks. 

Our mission is to change the lives of 1 Veteran at a time. A portion of the proceeds will change the life of 1 Veteran a year, with LIVE Facebook feeds, documenting the process.

I work in the OP1VET store here in Goshen, Indiana. I have been involved in the engraving industry for almost ten years. I love the mission and support that OP1VET provides our Veterans.   

I love reading, cooking and spending time with my family. My husband and I have lived in this area for over thirty years, and we have two sons who also live in the northern Indiana area.
