What makes Operation Charlie Bravo unique?

Their mission statement is to lower the suicide rate and prevent homelessness by providing therapeutic, hands-on, in- person programs for Veterans suffering from PTSD / TBI / and/or depression.

Operation Charlie Bravo provides a workshop, general safe haven, and comradery filled stomping ground for Veterans suffering from PTSD / TBI / and/or depression. This workshop includes trained individuals skilled in various areas of Motorcycle fabrication, restoration, and customization to help teach Veterans that there is more to life than settling for the life they currently live swallowed up by the monotonous black hole of depression, isolation, and self-medication that often comes with being a disabled Veteran. Once a Veteran completes any project or piece of art, it is theirs to keep at no cost or donate to another Veteran or family member of their choosing.
