TEAM OPERATION ENDURING BROTHERHOOD

 ( TEAM OEB )

   "No Vet Left Behind"
            


Team Operation Enduring Brotherhood is a 100% volunteer, faith based, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization located in Houston Texas, serving all honorably discharged veterans of the greater Houston area and eastern Texas Region. Our mission is to support and empower local veterans and their families to live an active and healthy lifestyle, raise awareness for the battles we face against PTSD, and facilitate an environment of camaraderie. We do this through routine cycling programs, recreational opportunities, and by fostering a sense of camaraderie once experienced while serving this great nation.

We are dedicated to inspire, mentor, and support disabled and honorably discharged veterans of all eras and from all branches of the armed forces within our community. Bringing veterans together to create friendships, bonds, and memories that will ultimately change the lives of everyone involved.

Mentoring Though Activities

Through the transition from active military to veteran, many find themselves with roadblocks that seem impossible to get through. For us at Operation Enduring Brotherhood, we have found that Peer Mentoring is one of the most effect ways to help other veterans through these roadblocks.

When engaged in cycling, Spartan Races, or other physical and team oriented activities, it builds a trusting relationship and encourages veterans who need the help to ask. These events also allow other veterans to lend a helping hand to those in need. This is beneficial to both parties and crucial in the recovery and transitional process. "No Vet Left Behind" requires participation from everyone to ensure that no veteran is truly left behind or forgotten.

 

Battles off the Battlefield (PTSD)

Post-Traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder that can occur after the Veteran experiences a traumatic event. After this type of event, the Veteran believes his/her life or the lives of those around them are in danger. He or She may feel anxious, depressed, afraid or just feel that they have no control over what is happening.

Current Statistics state: 
  • 22 Veterans a day commit suicide, this is a very clear and present danger to the men and women who have served for God and Country.
  • 1 in 3 returning troops will be diagnosed with severe PTSD.
  • Less than 40% of those diagnosed will seek help
  • Houston is the 2nd largest veterans community in the United States
