A Heroes Concert
April 1, 2017

The mission of Operation Red River is to thank veterans for their courage, selflessness and sacrifice to our country. We also hope to educate the general public about the trials and challenges of wounded veterans, and veterans in general. Twenty-two American veterans commit suicide daily, which we hope to bring awareness to and help change.
