Welcome to Operation MEND

Our mission is to deliver uplifting, feel good news, especially the stories of those who have served, past and present, and who have triumphed over adversity.

But since we can’t be everywhere, we hope you will be our eyes on the street.

Let us know who you think has climbed a proverbial mountain and planted a victory flag.

Because most heroes are just ordinary people who have done extraordinary things.
