Operation Pay It Forward

There are plenty of worthwhile charities in this world. There are also a lot of folks that still need help – and many social benefits are available to those that are going through a bad time or experiencing medical issues as a result of their service.

Our nation’s veterans raised their hands and purposely put themselves in harm’s way to sacrifice for their fellow Americans.  Unfortunately, our society has not put the same measures in place to take care of the unique struggles and injuries our combat veterans return home with.  Most struggle to simply understand what our returning veterans are trying to cope with in civilian life.

Operation Pay It Forward was founded and organized by veterans that understand the healing process and help by providing a new focus and mission for these veterans. One of the biggest voids to be filled for returning veterans is the lack of camaraderie and brotherhood that kept them alive in combat situations. In the civilian life, this is most easily duplicated by spending time in the field hunting, fishing or simply enjoying the outdoors. OPIF’s goal is to provide a new focus for our returning veterans and provide them with a new mission to help save their brothers and sisters they served with.  The enemy in civilian life is often within the veteran and much more difficult to identify and fight.  They exist to help in that battle.


If you are attending the show this year, be sure to save some time to drop by the Riton booth, have some coffee, enter for a giveaway and get to know our team.
