OPERATION NORTH STATE (ONS)
Operation North State (ONS) founded in December 2010 is a 501 c3 non-profit (ALL VOLUNTEER) military support services organization which annually offers forty-eight (48) “unique” projects for North Carolina’s active military personnel, deployed troops and veterans – especially wounded warriors / DVet. Additionally, we host nearly two-hundred 200) one-on-one recreational outings (fishing and golf) for wounded warriors / DVets throughout the year. And, we host dozens of veterans from outside North Carolina as well.
In 2022, ONS will host its Thirteenth Annual NCCARES Christmas Box Project - utilizing North Carolina’s People, Places, Products and Pride to deliver 1200 NCCARES Christmas Boxes to North Carolina's shut-in veterans. Our NINE (9) Top Shelf Fishin' Festivals held throughout the state are unmatched anywhere in the country! These “much-needed” recreational therapy outings offer life-changing experiences for our wounded warriors / DVets and their respective caregivers. All the Fishin’ Festivals dating back to April 2013 are featured and overviewed at Facebook: Operation North State Photo/Albums. The Fishin’ Festivals are FREE to wounded warriors / DVets and there is no Entry Fee for our Host Boaters. Also in 2022, ONS’ will continue to offer Foursomes for Heroes and Cycling Heals – Vets Connect outings throughout the state.
