Veteran Warriors Finding Healing & Freedom


One Warrior at a Time

For more than a thousand veterans, Operation Restored Warrior has stepped into the gap, RESCUING, REBUILDING and RESTORING our most at-risk veterans. Are you a veteran struggling with the long-term effects of combat? Are you the loved one of a veteran, perhaps a spouse, parent, sibling or friend? Or, are you a person of resources and influence– passionate to make an impact in the lives of these men and women? Then, ORW is for you.

One Encounter at a Time

Drop Zone: A Life-Changing Encounter

  • Happens in an inspiring setting,

    ORW’s events are hosted in beautiful and engaging venues in Colorado and Lake Tahoe, California, and include various activities. An on-site, award-winning chef prepares first class meals.

  • With men who've walked the warriors' path,

    While the men we work with come from all faiths and walks of life, each warrior experiences the Drop Zone alongside men who have walked the same or very similar paths as a veteran. As a result, the ORW team and other men attending the Drop Zone share a deep bond and understand the veteran’s unique challenges.

  • Leading to a personally life-changing encounter.

    At ORW, we believe that “psychology reveals, but Jesus heals.” This deep conviction and the experiences of seeing Jesus heal hundreds of men over the past 12 years makes the Drop Zone a singularly unique and life-changing experience with other men and Jesus.
