A Thanksgiving Eve to Remember

Thankful for the opportunity to serve those who served us with The Ohio State University Men’s Basketball Team. Not only were the veterans so thankful for this fun night, but the student-athletes had smiles just big.

We are so proud of this team. Of course we are happy that they are currently undefeated and ranked #10 in the country, but we are truly proud of them for spending their first night of break paying it forward with us. Not only did the team who came right from practice serve the veterans dinner, but they also spent their time interacting with our heroes. Many of the players could be spotted sitting next to a veteran talking to them sharing memories or going around the room refilling their plates.

Nights like these are exactly what Operation Joy are all about. If you ask any of the veterans that attended this event, they would agree that this was the best way to spend Thanksgiving Eve.
