Operation Enduring Warrior (OEW) is a veteran-founded non‐profit 501(c)(3) whose mission is to honor, empower, and motivate our nation’s wounded military and law enforcement veterans through physical, mental and emotional rehabilitation. Our programs help participants overcome adversity and hardship through innovation, teamwork, and perseverance.
This ultimately enables the lives of our wounded military and public service veterans to go in directions they may have once thought were impossible.
OEW is a 100% volunteer-run organization. Donations go directly towards operational support of the organization and our various programs.
Ruck to Remember has again selected Operation Enduring Warrior as one of its 2019 Mission Charity Sponsors.
60 to 60
Is an intense, grueling 60 mile team hike, done with a hiking backpack / military "Ruck" sack and all your required gear (est. 30 lbs) over steep rugged terrain and down through the historic WO&D Trail of Northern Virginia as the mission continues on, moving to the Iwo Jima War Memorial to link up with the Final Miles Team In all completing a 60 mile journey of Remembrance.
The Final Miles
Is the critical 6 mile movement, beginning at the Iwo Jima War Memorial, Memorial Day morning, then down through the National War Memorials. The teams move as a team, in formation, representing the strong force of our Military and camaraderie of those who have served. The movement itself is the show of force that serves to Honor and Remember all those that sacrificed all, as the movement moves over Memorial Bridge and into Arlington National Cemetery.
