Operation New Year
Operation New Uniform is ending the year with a bang! This year we have served over 50 veterans, beta-tested an ONU at Night program, and implemented the Veteran Committed Company program. We had our first ever Veterans Cup and the 4th Annual Heroes Dinner and Show raised funds to serve 20 future ONU Veterans. This wouldn't be possible without the help of our supporters. We look forward to the new opportunities and achievements in the new year. The ONU team wishes you a Happy New Year filled with much success!
Impacting Over 160 Lives 
Operation New Uniform would like to take a moment to thank all of our supporters. Without your support, we would not have been able to impact over 184 lives. In 2017, Operation New Uniform was able to make an economic impact of $3.4 million in our veteran community. Also, 96% of ONU Veterans gained employment during or after the Finding the Uniform Program. Our trainers and coaches spent over 4500 hours with our veterans this year. That's on average of 79 hours invested in each ONU Veteran! We are grateful to have supporters, like you, to help us make a difference in our Veterans' lives. We look forward to continuing to impact our veteran community in 2018! 

ONU Veteran Committed Companies
Operation New Uniform is honored to be in a city with so many veteran friendly companies. Although there are companies that stand out, the veterans shown in this picture are all sponsored by Veteran Committed Companies. These companies are committed to making a difference the veteran community. By partnering with ONU, each company has the opportunity to sponsor 1-10 ONU Veterans and make a difference in their lives.
2017 Veteran Committed Companies are not limited to those shown in the picture, ONU VCCs include The Boeing Company, Black Knight Financial Services, Macquarie, Haskell, IBM, Wells Fargo, Tom Peterson Family Foundation, and Vitalogy Foundation. Thank you for all of your support to ONU and our Mission!

The #40emptychairs campaign was launched this year as a way to share our goals. ONU was unable to meet the demand of our veteran community in 2017. Each cohort we receive an average of 50 applications from veterans asking for our help. Unfortunately, we are only able to serve 60 veterans, turning away approximately 240 veterans a year. 
The picture below is 40 ONU Alumni that had the opportunity to go through ONU's programs, but please remember the 40 veterans who were turned away. These veterans are all skilled, educated, and qualified to start their new career, but they need the tools to succeed. That is where ONU provides assistance. Help us serve the 40 veterans that were turned away by joining the #40emptychairs campaign.
