american-806513_640Dear Operation Amped sponsors, donors, volunteers and warriors,

As Memorial Day approaches, we at Operation Amped ask that you take a moment to:

  • Remember our honored fallen heroes for which this day is dedicated
  • Thank a Veteran for his or her service to this great country
  • Get involved and volunteer at your local Veterans Charity and any Veterans charitable event
  • Finally, please give generously to your favorite Veterans charity/Non-Profit organization

Operation Amped continues to serve Ill, Injured and Disabled Veterans and their families through Surf Therapy.  Please help us continue this mission!


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!


Operation Amped has received a donation from Katie Joblon, of New York on behalf of her friend Tanner Jones….

In Loving Memory of Tanner Jones (Surf City, NC). For his love of surfing, and passion to help others. If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever. Rest in paradise. #liveliketanner
