Operation Homefront Having previously been on a shooting assignment for the U.S. Armed Forces, I have had the privilege of working with our military personnel based in Turkey, Egypt, Jordan, Germany and other countries. Many of our soldiers had returned to bases from war zones, having lost brothers in arms. I met those that continued to volunteer for a second, third and sometimes a fourth tour of duty, to be with and fight alongside the brothers and sisters they had left behind. Their dedication, courage and willingness to serve is forever imprinted on my mind. For me, the assignment for a nonprofit, Operation Homefront, is in a way, another part of the same story. Operation Homefront is dedicated to providing financial and other assistance to the families of our service members and wounded warriors. Since its inception, Operation Homefront has provided more than $128 million dollars of funding to programs to benefit military families. Moreover, it has served more than 4,200 wounded warriors and their families.
