Operation Hat Trick Donates to Three Organizations to Support Wounded and Recovering Service Members and Veterans

HAMPTON, N.H. (July 17, 2019) – Operation Hat Trick, a nonprofit that supports the recovery of wounded service members and veterans through the sale of its branded merchandise, recently made a donation to three organizations dedicated to supporting service members and veterans.  Those three organizations are Hero Flights, Infinite Wishes Foundation, and MARSOC (United States Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command)/Marine Raider Foundation.

The donations will be used in many different ways, including transporting veterans to medical appointments, research centers and more; gratitude tours and respite trips; and supporting active duty and medically retired MARSOC Raiders and their families.

Operation Hat Trick began in 2008 in honor of two fallen Navy SEALS, Nate Hardy and Mike Koch, who are buried next to each other at Arlington National Cemetery.  The nonprofit works with colleges and universities, sports leagues, companies and fans across the U.S. to honor active-duty military and veterans through the sale of its branded merchandise.

“Operation Hat Trick is thrilled to be able provide support to these organizations,” said Dot Sheehan, founder, president/CEO of Operation Hat Trick. “Our mission is to support the recovery of wounded service members and veterans, so these organizations fit perfectly with our goal.”

Since 2014, Operation Hat Trick has donated over $1.2 million to various veteran service organizations to support the recovery of service members and veterans.

About Hero Flights:

OHTHero Flights is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to provide free air transportation for combat wounded and their families for medical and other compassionate purposes. They personally fly the veterans in general aviation aircraft. This means many more airports are available to them and they can avoid long security lines and baggage limits. They cater the flights to the needs of the veteran and make every attempt to make the flight and easy as possible. They coordinate everything with the medical staff on the ground so that they know where and when they will be landing and so someone is waiting for the veteran when they arrive.
