An idea became a vision; a vision became a mission; and a mission brought Operation Beachhead to life.
This life continues to grow through the support of people who wish to show their appreciation and thanks to our veterans.

Operation Beachhead

An idea became a vision; a vision became a mission;
and a mission brought Operation Beachhead to life.

January 2018 Sled-Hockey Event






Operation Beachhead celebrated the New Year with a sled hockey event at the john J Piccolo Ice Arena in Old Bridge, NJ. We welcomed members from the James J. Peters VA Medical Center in the Bronx, NY, the veterans from the East Orange Veterans Campus, active duty Coast Guard troops stationed out of Point Pleasant Beach, NJ, and our team of Operation Beachhead skaters. 

Our team volunteers from Operation Beachhead welcomed a few new volunteers during this session. As always we were supported by the members of the FDNY(Fire Department of New York City) intramural hockey team and local coaches of the arena.

Welcoming Operation Beachhead, as always, was the Old Bridge recreation staff. Sam and Tom have warm breakfast sandwiches and drinks ready on our arrival. John prepares the sleds and equipment and has everything ready for the day ahead.
