MICHAEL MASON’S VISION FOR ODV
As Director and Treasurer of the Board, Mr. Mason quickly recognized that ODV’s mission to bridge the gap in services offered to the veteran community was both bold and unique. The wholistic approach to restore the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual journey of an individual was one that he appreciated based on his own expertise in martial arts and business.
His interpretation of ODV’s mission was of an organization that…
Collaborates with private and public entities to effectively eliminate the underlying causes prohibiting successful transition from military to civilian life.
Holds institutions accountable to their own mission of serving the veteran community.
Michael Mason’s vision of ODV is to recognize individuals and institutions that work in harmony to uphold this nation’s commitment to its men and women in uniform. Donations to The Michael Mason Memorial Fund will be used to continue his dream for ODV as a service organization that does not put restrictions on how a veteran family is assisted during their time of need.
A NOTE FROM #TEAMODV
Mr. Mason’s staunch support of ODV’s mission was evident in his interactions with the team. He constantly encouraged us to not get tangled in the ‘red tape’ that hindered progress, and reminded us we were the ‘decisive victory’ a family needed to continue on their journey with hope. He was exceptionally proud of the creative geniuses and the visionaries behind the brand. We strive everyday to honor his love for the team, his commitment to the veteran community and his dream for an influential ODV.
To everyone that is helping uphold his memory through our organization, THANK YOU.
