Kickstart Operation Barnabas

Operation Barnabas is a faith based nonprofit organization founded by US Marine Veteran, Gunnery Sgt (retired) Trey Fagan. Operation Barnabas assists military veterans and first responders who struggle with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Operation Barnabas will assist military veterans and first responders to succeed by offering peer mentorship, hands on resources, skills, and teaching them how to better handle stress.

Our vision for veterans and first responders is simple, save as many lives as we possibly can by showing these men and women they have worth and purpose.

Programs veterans and first responders will engage in while at Operation Barnabas include:

• Outdoor Adventures
• Equine Therapy
• Horse Back Riding
• Dirt Bike Riding
• Archery
• Shooting
• Peer Mentorship

Operation Barnabas is able to assist our veterans and first responder’s due to the support of generous donors. We welcome and appreciate any level of donation that you can give!

“As a US Marine Raider, with multiple combat deployments, and having experienced tough strains that combat can do to an individual, I know the importance of seeking help with PTSD. PTSD not only affected me, but also my relationship with family and friends. After returning from my last combat deployment, my struggles led to me placing my 17-year military career in jeopardy, nearly destroying my marriage. I felt hopeless. I drank a lot and made some unhealthy choices.

Thankfully, four fellow veterans along with close friends intervened to get me the help that I needed. I truly believe that I wouldn’t be here today if they didn’t step in to help. I am now a strong Christian and I have 3 years of sobriety. I am happily married, I have three amazing children.” (Ret) Gunnery Sgt Trey Fagan
