About Operation Patriots FOB
Operation Patriots FOB was founded in response to our nations Veteran suicide crisis. After losing 5 guys to suicide in 2019, 22 total to date, co-founders Roy Brown JR and his wife Stephanie knew they had to do more. OPFOB’s mission is dedicated to creating and fostering positive experiences for Veterans and first responders by connecting through outdoor and recreational activities. Spending time in the outdoors and connecting with other Veterans provided the best therapy for JR as he was transitioning to life after combat. OPFOB gives Veterans and first responders an opportunity to regain that camaraderie they miss the most after leaving service and provides a network of likeminded individuals to lean on when times get tough. Finding purpose beyond the call of duty can be challenging. But at OPFOB you don’t have to do it alone. Regroup. Refocus.
