About o.p.s.

We Aim to serve

We started this organization in 2014 in order to support our Active Duty Members, Honorable Veterans, First Responders, and their Families. With your continued support, we've been able to grow and expand our reach each year.

Our Mission & Vision

Our mission is to provide assistance to all of our Active Duty, Veterans, and First Responders, during their times of need, who have served our country honorably.

Ultimately, our goal is to help connect our community by building a support system that our Heroes can depend on when they need it most.

What We Do

Operation Phantom Support is a 501 {C} {3} non-profit serving Active Duty, Honorable Veterans, First Responders, and their families. Our purpose is to provide soldiers, honorably discharged veterans, and first responders assistance with day-to-day support in their times of need.

OPS is the vision of its founder SFC {Ret} John Valentine. Having spent his first 18 years as a dependent, as well as his adulthood in the Army, he has a unique perspective of the challenges faced by those who dedicate their lives to serving our country. Once retired, and given the opportunity to create a non-profit that could help those serving and those who served honorably, he has developed and continues to grow OPS with a variety of programs to serve those in need.‍

One of the first hurdles he knew the nonprofit would face is the pride of our active and veteran communities. With that in mind he developed a way every soldier or veteran can be involved by helping each other. OPS asks soldiers and veterans – along with civilians who support them – to donate $20 a month.  The donations are then used to maintain the programs, so in effect we are all helping each other. The creation of new programs is vital in addressing the needs of soldiers whether they are young and still serving or veterans who are aging.
