Operation Double Eagle
Improving Warrior Quality of Life through workforce development and employment
Veteran Workforce Development
Operation Double Eagle is a 9-week skills development program in Augusta, GA that connects veterans and transitioning active-duty service members to a network of employers seeking “job-ready” veterans for nationwide career opportunities.
We actively recruit veterans with barriers to employment through our network of partners, transitioning active-duty military, and government agencies.
We are partnering with Augusta Technical College for veterans to earn credit hours using certified instructors via classroom and lab application education
Made possible by a grant from The Bob Woodruff Foundation, the Double Eagle Performance Center is a dynamic worksite for veterans to gain valuable skills through a hands-on learning program.
The renovation of the August Municipal Golf Course (The Patch) will be used as an apprenticeship opportunity and deliver a signature, ADA compliant golf course.
Rediscover Your Warrior
The Warrior Cohorts include up to 15 participants and are scheduled throughout the year. Applicants are selected based on a rigorous selection process and availability. The education and training program offers the following opportunity:
Warrior Cohorts are scheduled four times a year. We are always accepting applications.
“Some of us have disabilities and invisible wounds and we have our little quirks on what we can do and what we can't. There's no judgment and total support in Operation Double Eagle.”
“This program helped encourage me to continue my education. I never would have thought at my age that I would be a college student.”
“I finally found something I'm decent at and I enjoy, veterans looking out for veterans, there's nothing really better than that.”
“Teamwork, sharing knowledge and good laughs. You have no idea how good this is for my mind at this time in my life.”
“It’s been a wonderful opportunity being around like-minded veterans again and having immediate employment choices.”
“The program helped me to get back to military style education. Learning in class and training on basic skills helped me rediscover my passion.”
". . . as [service members] return home and transition back into civilian communities . . . we ought to make it a priority to help them channel their experience, ethos, and desire for personal challenge into continuing to make a difference. Their strengths are our strengths, the steel of America’s national character.”
– General Martin E. Dempsey, November 2013

Rich in History
Built in 1926 by David Oglivie, “The Patch” refers to the golf course’s original land as a nursery, and is home to where the legendary PGA Tour Player, Jim Dent got his start. Many of the Augusta community learned to play golf at The Patch, with several of its members becoming revered caddies at the famed Masters tournament.
The Renovation Project
