Operation Ward 57 arranges excursions to events, concerts and sporting events in the local area as well as around the country. These events feature a meet-n-greet with the artist and a special seating area. Recent events include 3 Doors Down, Alice in Chains, Collective Soul rock concerts, Rodney Atkins country music concert and Mixed Martial Arts competitions. If a wounded warrior wants to attend a show anywhere in the country, we will arrange entrance for them (subject to availability).
We also organize special events for caregivers and wounded warrior children such as concerts, spa days, summer camps, carnivals, art & theater and more. These events provide the families with a day off from taking care of their wounded service member and allows for bonding with the other families.
We also team up with several other non profits to provide retirement ceremonies for wounded service members at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. Light snacks, cake, flowers and more are provided on this special day.
