Operation Nightingale USA integrates Wounded Warriors into a community of archaeological researchers that supports their rehabilitation through goal-oriented, team-centered excavations.
Operation Nightingale USA emphasizes the ability of each participant, giving each an important role to perform regardless of service injury. This may be conducting site surveys, cataloging finds, or digging shoulder to shoulder with field archaeologists.
Operation Nightingale USA teams Wounded Warriors with academic archaeological projects, to foster health and well-being through goal-oriented excavations and preservation of our common cultural heritage.
Operation Nightingale USA pays the costs for Wounded Warriors to participate in archaeological excavations alongside professional archaeologists. See our “Projects” page for current and upcoming excavations.
