Operation Mend Launches Website to Share Inspirational Stories

Operation Mend is using the reach of the Internet to promote positive, uplifting and inspiring news stories about those who have triumphed in the face of adversity. While primarily focusing on those who serve and veterans, coverage is also extended to first responders, health care professionals, and everyday heroes whose stories will make each reader strive to be a better person.

Often times, the stories that are in the news or trending on the web make it hard to remember the presence of good in the world. And yet it is constantly around us. The world is full of everyday heroes and true stories of transformation. Their triumphs may be enormous, against all odds types of victories, or they may be small and simple, yet profound. Most importantly, what makes them heroes is that what they have accomplished is not self-serving, but rather, done for the benefit and welfare of others.

“Working in the military arena for over 15 years, I have had the opportunity to meet many extraordinary people with some really amazing stories,” said Debbie Gregory, who is responsible for conceiving Operation Mend. “I wanted to create a website that would share their stories and give them the recognition they deserve.”

Operation Mend aims to shine a light on these stories, and in doing so, change the nature of our conversations. And if reading them can spread hope along the way, the purpose has been served.    

Operation Mend’s readers are encouraged to submit stories that fall in this criteria by emailing them to info(at)operationmend(dot)org.

Operation Mend is the brainchild of Debbie Gregory, the CEO of, one of the most comprehensive directories of resources and information for military and veterans, known as “the Go To Site”. Ms. Gregory is also the founder of the Veterans and Military Business Owners Association (VAMBOA). The goal of Operation Mend is to counterbalance news that focuses on the negative by sharing positive, uplifting stories that will inspire and help others who are also dealing with adversity of some type.
