Our Mission: To honor and serve military veterans, first responders, and families

Our Journey…

Since the time she can remember, Dr. Ninzel Rasmuson, an Air National Guard veteran, had the mission of forming a nonprofit that would serve veterans with a vision of having a world without suicide. As a result, this dream became a reality, Operation Veteran Support was formed, and the rest is history.

Operation Veteran Support was founded by Dr. Ninzel Rasmuson in the State of Utah and it opened its doors April 1, 2017. On July 1, 2017, Operation Veteran Support started doing business as Honor365™, mainly because at the heart of why we do what we do is to honor those who help to protect and defend the people of the United States 365 days a year, always “Remembering the One™.” The Remembering the One™ program began with honoring veterans only.  Katrina Parry was instrumental in helping Dr. Rasmuson develop the Remembering the One™ program and she continues be a tremendous asset.

REMEMBERING THE ONE

Joseph Dempsey has served as a Board member since the opening of Honor365.  He serves as a law enforcement officer and is a Marine Corps veteran.  We appreciate his continued service and insight to what we do as an organization. 

In February 2018, Melissa Sullivan joined the ranks of Honor365. Melissa serves as the Director of Operations for Honor365™. Previously, Melissa served as a paramedic and she understands the first responder community well. In addition, Melissa’s husband served for several years with the Army’s Special Forces, 19th Division. We are deeply grateful to Melissa’s commitment and impact on the work we get to do every day. 

Please continue to help us with our legacy and our traditions by passing information on this website to your family, friends, and your community at large. We know that as we continue to serve our communities that great things will happen. 

Thank you so much for your support. 

From Darkness Light Prevails™, The Honor365™ Team

This is Secret Service Special Agent Tom Armas. On This is Secret Service Special Agent Tom Armas. On 9/11/01, SA Armas was working out next door to the World Trade Center when all hell broke loose. He ran towards danger, not once, but multiple times, climbing 40 stories in the North Tower to rescue people. He did this in gym shorts and a t-shirt. He eventually became trapped in the North Tower’s lobby after the South Tower collapsed. Tom made it out.

This is one story of heroism on September 11th and there are countless others from that day. I encourage you to find your own hero from 9/11, read their story today. Remember that ordinary people became extraordinary.

We honor you, Tom Armas.

Carolyn Halmon, 49, worked the day shift as a budg Carolyn Halmon, 49, worked the day shift as a budget analyst for the Army at the Pentagon. Herman Halmon, her husband of nearly 30 years, worked evenings. But he managed to drag himself out of bed every morning to drive her to the Benning Road Metro station before 7:00 a.m., making sure to get a goodbye kiss from the girl he’d met in junior high in Bowman, South Carolina. 

Now Herman Halmon, 49, wants to remember his wife the way she was when he dropped her off that Tuesday morning. 

“She just said, ‘Hey baby, I know you’re going back to bed,’ ” he recalled. “I said, ‘That’s right.’ She said, ‘Okay, rest good. I’ll call you later.’ ” 

But by the time later came, a hijacked American Airlines flight had hit the Pentagon near the newly renovated office where Carolyn Halmon worked; Herman Halmon was calling his wife’s number, over and over, and getting no answer. 

Carolyn Halmon was “definitely a churchgoing person,” her husband said, dedicated to her charity work at the National Church of God in Fort Washington. She also loved gardening at her home in the 5300 block of East Capitol Street, NE, growing tomatoes, peppers, greens and flowers. 

The couple raised a son, Stan, 30, and a daughter, Alisha, 26, and became grandparents five years ago. Halmon and her husband were starting to look forward to retiring in Hilton Head, South Carolina, where they had purchased a vacation condominium. Herman Halmon said he had been attending the twice-daily briefings for families of the missing; not quite ready to give up hope. 

“I knew it was just a small chance, but I still had my faith,” Halmon said. “I hoped that little angel will come past and tell me she was all right.” 

We honor you, Carolyn Halmon.
