IMG_1501Operation Amped is pleased to announce a NEW Volunteer of the Year Award in honor of August Henry “DUKE” Wagner, III who recently passed. Henry along with his wife Tracy and daughter Taylor have been steadfast volunteers of Operation Amped for the past 5 years. The award will be a beautifully sculpted TIKI with a placard of the recipients name and year of induction. Henry’s memory will be forever etched into our hearts!
