Our Mission

Operation Circle Back is committed to honoring our nation’s veterans and first responders by providing transformative outdoor retreats, including opportunities for hunting, fishing, equine therapy, and leadership development. Our mission is to “circle back” to our heroes through these programs, fostering emotional resilience, camaraderie, a sense of belonging, purpose, and facilitating a successful integration back into their community.

Our Vision

The vision of Operation Circle Back is to harness the transformative power of outdoor and wilderness settings, recognizing its ability to enhance trauma-informed recovery efforts for veterans and first responders. We aim to create and sustain a permanent outdoor and wilderness environment dedicated to supporting individuals dealing with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Our goal is to accelerate the development of skills to manage, reduce, and potentially eliminate adverse work-related traumatic stress reactions. Through this initiative, we are committed to improving the physical, emotional, spiritual, and overall well-being of veterans, first responders, and their families.

Help for Heroes

When a hero is injured or loses their life in duty, their families often face numerous challenges in daily life. From struggling to pay medical bills, mortgages, and utilities to needing home modifications for handicap accessibility or providing for their children’s education, these burdens can be overwhelming. Our mission is to alleviate these struggles and support these families.

Many of these heroes have made immense sacrifices to safeguard our freedoms, with some enduring the ordeal of being prisoners of war. Shockingly, more than 82,000 are still missing in action. Our greatest fear is that these heroes will be forgotten. At Operation Circle Back, we are committed to ensuring they are never forgotten. Part of our mission is to educate today’s youth about POW/MIA/KIA, ensuring that America remembers their sacrifices.

Efforts to recover remains are ongoing.  Please visit the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency website, DPAA.mil.
