History & Mission

Operation Hat Trick (OHT) was founded at the University of New Hampshire as an organization that delivered hats to wounded soldiers in VA hospitals. 
OHT's mission is to generate fnds to support the recovery, education and future employment of wounded service members and veterans.  

OHT is dedicated to the memory of Nate Hardy (son of a UNH professor and his wife) and Mike Koch - two Navy SEALS who fought together, died together in 2008 and are buried together at Arlington National Cemetery.  The name Operation Hat Trick comes from the initial focus on hats, its benefit to the military and UNH's rich tradition in hockey.  Through a partnership with '47 Brand and participating collegiate institutions, OHT has expanded beyond its New Hampshire roots to yield greater benefits to our armed forces.  Thank you for supporting our service men and women who have served their country so valiantly.
