“The noble work that Operation Enduring Warrior does results in incredibly positive transformative changes in the lives of our service men and women as they acclimate to life after serving our country,” said OCRWC President Adrian Bijanada. “We are thrilled to support them once again in 2015 and we are honored to have them as our guests in October.”

OCRWC organizers will be working with OEW to help market their mission and raise awareness through a variety of initiatives.
