It's hard to believe it's been a year.

Last August, we were going about our summer — chatting with our friends and former colleagues about the withdrawal but not realizing that all hell would break loose in Afghanistan in two weeks. When Kabul fell on August 15, 2021, we transformed our humble veteran and first responder support foundation into Operation Recovery: a non-profit network of 150 dedicated volunteers worldwide. 

We didn’t stop helping our partners when the U.S. left last August, and we won’t stop until those who stood beside us for the past 20 years are safe. The past year has been a blur — we don’t sleep, worry about our Afghanistan friends, and have given almost everything we have. Over the next 30 days, we’ll be sharing the stories of our volunteers, partners, friends, and most importantly — the stories of America’s Afghan allies in their own words. Join us.


"Thank you to this amazing team for your relentless work in making dreams possible. You have forever changed the trajectory of these lives and inspired a generation of children to realize the power of fighting for humanity."

The past 10 months have been a roller coaster of emotions. Getting my family to safety took a lot of effort and hard work from so many incredible people. I want to extend my gratitude to @OfficialOpReco for their unwavering support throughout this lengthy process.

Thank you. Whenever I receive an update from @OfficialOpReco it gives me hope that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Otherwise, my life is dark and miserable now.
