Mission - OPERATION HELMET provides helmet upgrade kits free of charge to troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as to those ordered to deploy in the near future. These helmet upgrades do three primary things:
Comfort - If it is more comfortable, it will stay on troop's head longer and more often.
Stability - Keeps the helmet firmly on the head and out of the eyes.
Protection - Shock-absorbing pads keep the helmet from slapping the skull when hit with blast forces, fragments, or being tumbled along the ground or inside a vehicle. This decreases the chance of brain injury from bombs, RPG's, vehicle accidents, falls, etc.
As a secondary benefit, the pads make the helmet actually float in water.
We are an all-volunteer, non-partisan, charitable organization headquartered in Houston, Texas with volunteer operations around the country. 100% of all contributions are used to send upgrade kits to our troops! We have zero overhead - it is a labor of love.
Operation Helmet, Inc. is a 501-c-3 Charity. Our EIN is 20-1756585. Donations are tax-deductible

Regardless of how one feels about the war, we all want the troops home alive and well. Politics has no place in supporting the troops!
