Operation Once in a Lifetime

Making the dreams of U.S. Soldiers and their families come true since 2008

Operation Once in a lifetime (OOIAL) is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization created to make the dreams of U.S. soldiers come true.” It is an operation that strives to help all veterans with the hardships of being a veteran, which can often times be recovering or living with an injury that occurred while they were in service. We would like to get veterans who come home wounded and would benefit from the iWALK walking again using their donated iWALK2.0.

Every contribution will go to helping an Active Duty Service Member, Veteran or their family in need of support, in sever years, Operation Once in a Lifetime has helped over 159,000 Service Members and Veterans: with your help we can double that number.
