Since Operation Warrior Wishes “Kicked Off” their inaugural mission in 2012 to host & honor Wounded Veterans at all 32 NFL stadiums in 1 season, they have proudly made Warrior Wishes come true at a total of 165 NFL games in 4 years!
This year they’re back in action for the 5th straight year making Warrior Wishes come true at 44 games throughout the 2016 NFL season plus playoffs all the way to Super Bowl 51 in Houston!
The mission is to “Honor Heroes, Keep Legacies Alive & Provide Once In a Lifetime Experiences To Warriors From The Battlefields To The Ballfields.” In the past 4 years, They have made Warrior Wishes come true at MLB games, NHL games, NBA games, concerts, NASCAR races & other events across the country. In total, Operation Warrior Wishes has hosted around 2000 Warriors at over 500 events!
Matt, founder & president of the mission says, “We never imagined our father & son project would have turned into what it is today & would like to thank all of the teams, sponsors, volunteers & supporters who have helped us make all these wishes come true. We could have never made it all possible without ALL of you. TOGETHER WE MAKE WARRIOR WISHES COME TRUE & look forward to seeing you all again over the next few months.”
Operation Warrior Wishes does everything they can to provide once in a lifetime experiences to each warrior. They want to show these Warriors that their service and sacrifices have not gone unnoticed, they are appreciated, and will not be forgotten. They are a registered 501c3 non profit organization & keep operating expenses low so all the money raised goes towards making Warrior Wishes come true. Everyone involved volunteers their time and only gets paid in smiles. For this mission, the organization spent less than $2000 in travel expenses to host the Warriors at all 44 NFL games on the schedule. Thanks to some modern technology & airfare price alerts Craig, founder & the man hosting all the warriors, will be spending a lot more time in the air than on $1 overnight bus rides. However, he will be back on the bus plenty of times in the next 4 months.

“Thank You for the AMAZING Opportunity to attend the Steelers game, IT WAS A DREAM COME TRUE! I Never thought in a million years I would get to stand on the sidelines at Heinz field. You will never fully understand what a positive effect you are having on the warfighter community, it runs so much deeper than having fun at the game.” ~Army SGT Mike Rice~
