SFC (R) Ryan Hendrickson, U.S. Army Retried, was a special forces engineer in the U.S. Army. Ryan transferred over to the Army in 2008 after completing enlistments in both the Navy and the Air Force. After Ryan’s time in service, he wrote his best-selling book, “Tip of the Spear”. To continue his efforts in the military community, Ryan is partnering with Youth with a Mission and Operation Shield Foundation.
We have all been watching the war unfold between Russia and Ukraine. While most of us can only pray for things to improve for both countries affected, Ryan decided to go himself and make an impact. He started communicating with Youth with a Mission to get all the details on what was needed and how he could be of the most help once in Ukraine. Operation Shield Foundation jumped in as soon as we found out what Ryan wanted to do. We booked his flight and built an Amazon Wishlist based on the supplies that were most needed. OSF continues to send supplies/food and help fund gas for roundtrip travel to help civilians get to safety
